Natseven TV Sdn Bhd, better known as ntv7, is a free-to-air terrestrial television channel in Malaysia based in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. It began broadcasting nationwide on 7 April 1998. Its mission is to promote a happier and more enlightened Malaysia. Believing strongly in the provision of wholesome entertainment, good family and community values, good corporate citizenship, and the promotion of national integration, the station works on an appointment-based programming concept reflecting its philosophy of being "Saluran Ceria Anda" (Feel Good Channel) Since 1 April 2016, this channel will only broadcast regular programming during 1PM until about 1AM everyday with a teleshopping block called CJ Wow Shop being broadcast during 6AM to 1PM everyday, which attracted huge criticism on social media.[7]


Ntv7 differs from other Malaysian broadcasters in being a media brand rather than just a television station. Programmes are treated as products under relevant brands - more commonly referred to as programming belts, and are managed by a team of brand managers.

Under the appointment-based concept, factors such as who watches what and when define when a programme is slotted in the TV schedule. The station, which broadcasts on the UHF frequency band, offers a combination of Malaysian, English and Chinese programmes, produced locally as well as some from overseas.

Offering a wide variety of programming, ntv7's line-up includes dramas sinetron, situational comedies (sitcoms), entertainment programmes, game shows, children programmes, anime, and movies. There are also news bulletins in English, Mandarin and Malay.

ntv7 is also available over all Malaysian digital broadcasting platforms (Astro, Astro NJOI, HyppTV, ABNXcess, MYTV) on Channel 107.
