TV3 Network Limited (TV3 Ghana) is a private, free-to-air television broadcaster in Ghana. Launched in 1997 by Thai company BEC-TERO, TV3 Ghana airs and produces a variety of television programmes including acclaimed news bulletins, dramas and successful reality television and entertainment shows. In year 1999, it was sold to Media Prima, a Malaysian company, and then taken over by a Ghanaian company in 2011. TV3 Ghana established itself as the most watched free-to-air television station in Ghana, having achieved 65% nationwide penetration at end-2006 and aiming to reach 90% by 2008. However, TV3 has experienced major competition in the likes of Metro TV which has succeeded not only in broadcasting its network to all the regions in the country but it also struck a deal with South Africa's Multichoice allowing it to be broadcast throughout Africa. Despite this, TV3 remains popular for its showing of Mexican telenovelas, Korean series and music.
