Formosa Television is a television station based in Taipei, Taiwan. Established on March 27, 1996, FTV began broadcasting on June 11, 1997.

Because of the location of its headquarters, which is in an area where Taiwanese Hokkien speakers are populous, it also earned the reputation for being the first station in Taiwan to use that tongue in a majority of its programs, especially on their prime time newscasts.

On May 24, 2004, FTV was among the first free-to-air channels on Taiwan to switch from terrestrial analogue signal to digital television.[1]

Broadcasting hours on Formosa Television is 24 hours except Monday 21 hours.

One of its more popular broadcasts are the coverage of live matches of Major League Baseball.
