Sveriges Television (SVT) is the Swedish public service television company with the widest range of programming of all TV companies in Sweden. Today SVT operates eight channels - seven national, SVT1, SVT2, SVT24, SVT B (a childrens´ channel) and together with UR, Kunskapskanalen, and one international, SVT World.

SVT programming is subject to the provisions of the Radio Act, to terms set out in the charter between SVT and the state as well as internal programming guidelines. The charter guarantees SVT´s independency of all pressure groups, political, commercial or otherwise. One of the most important points is "to scrutinize authorities, organizations and private firms which exert influence over policy affecting the public, and cover the activities of these and other bodies".
