The Eswatini Television Authority (STVA)


The Eswatini Television Authority (STVA) is a broadcaster established in 1983 through an act of parliament. Before it was established by the Act of parliament, it was known as the Eswatini Television Broadcasting Corporation (STBC). STBC was officially opened by His Majesty King Sobhuza II in February 1978. This was the coming of television in Swaziland.

The government of the Kingdom of Eswatini took over the then privately owned company belonging to an electronic group of companies based in the United Kingdom. The company had a monopoly in all television gadgets or equipment, as a result, they were also operating a television rental operating under Vision Hire. With the change of the television station from STBC to STVA, Vision Hire also changed to the Swaziland Television Authority Rentals (STAR).

The establishment of the authority through the act of parliament changed the television station into a public broadcaster.
