TV Tokyo Corporation (or TX) (株式会社テレビ東京, Kabushiki-gaisha Terebi Tōkyō) TYO: 9413 is a television station headquartered in Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo, Japan.[1] Also known as "Teleto" (テレ東, Teretō), 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. The station is partly owned by Nihon Keizai Shimbun.


TV Tokyo was established by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science in 1951 and started broadcasting on April 12, 1964. A limited liability company, Tokyo Channel 12 Production, was formed for the channel on July 1, 1968.

In October 1973, the name was shortened to Tokyo Channel 12 and it took over the broadcasting from the science foundation. A month later, it became a general purpose TV station along with Japan Educational Television (now TV Asahi).

In 1981, it was again renamed, this time to Television Tokyo Channel 12.

In 1983, TV Tokyo formed the Mega TON Network (now TXN) 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.[citation needed] The current logo is a cartoon banana with eyes, a nose and a mouth which is bent into a 7, named Nanana (ナナナ).
