The Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT) has announced the launch of a new free-to-air channel, TRT-5 Anatolia, which is being broadcast on the Turksat 3A satellite. The new channel features TV serials, dramas, music programmes (mostly folk music) and news bulletins from TRTís archives as well as other programming from local and regional television stations.

Local and regional television stations which contribute programmes will also receive training from TRT for their staff. The Union of Local and Regional Televisions will be the largest programming contributor to TRT-5 Anatolia.
