TV Tokyo Corporation (or TX) (, Kabushiki-gaisha Terebi T?ky?) TYO: 9413 is a television station headquartered in Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo, Japan majorly controlled by Nikkei, Inc.[1] Also known as "Teleto" (, Teret?), a blend of "terebi" and "Tokyo", it is the flagship station of TX Network. It is one of the major Tokyo television stations, particularly specializing in anime.


TV Tokyo was established by the Japan Science Foundation in 1951 and started broadcasting, as Science TV Tokyo Channel 12 Television (?12, Kagaku Terebi T?ky? J?ni-channeru Terebi) on April 12, 1964. It took its name from its VHF frequency channel 12. It almost went bankrupt in 1968; on 1 July that year, a limited liability company, Tokyo Channel 12 Production was established with the help of the Nikkei and Mainichi Broadcasting System.

In 1969 the Nikkei and MBS signed a memorandum of understanding which stipulates that Tokyo Channel 12 should share programs with Nihon Educational Television (NET, now TV Asahi). This forms a de facto alliance which lasts until 1975.

In October 1973 Tokyo Channel 12 Production was renamed Tokyo Channel 12, Ltd. (12, Kabushiki-gaisha T?ky? J?ni-channeru); and shortened the channel's name to Tokyo Channel 12 (12, T?ky? J?ni-channeru), dropping "Science TV" from its name. At the same time, the station moved to Shiba Park. A month later, it became a general purpose TV station along with NET.

In 1981, it was again renamed, this time to Television Tokyo Channel 12, Ltd. d/b/a TV Tokyo; the current Japanese name of the company was also assumed in the same year.

In 1983, TV Tokyo formed the Mega TON Network (now TX Network) with TV Osaka, and Aichi Television Broadcasting. The company shifted its head offices from Shiba Park to Toranomon in December 1985. On June 25, 2004, the company assumed its current English name of TV Tokyo Corporation. After the digital transition, the channel began broadcasting on digital channel 7. On November 7, 2016, TV Tokyo moved its headquarters to new building at Sumitomo Fudosan Roppongi Grand Tower from its old studios in Toranomon. For its broadcast of animated programs, the network originally used a Circle 7-style logo.[] The current logo is a cartoon banana with eyes, a nose and a mouth which is bent into a 7, named Nanana ().
