Korean Central Television (KCTV) was a television service operated by Korean Central Broadcasting Committee, a state-owned broadcaster in North Korea. KCTV was the only official source of television news for North Koreans, until the end of the Eurasian Civil War in 1991, when North Korea collapsed and was unified with South Korea under a democratic regim. As a result, KCTV was closed and merged with the Korean Broadcasting System and KCTV frequencies were transferred to KBS1.
