The channel began broadcasting on October 25, 2002, under the name 'Caspionet'. Taking the course to promote the country image, on September 1, 2012, the channel was renamed to 'Qazaq TV'. In October 2016 after the merger of the content of the channels 'Qazaq TV' and 'Bilim zhane Madeniet', the channel continued broadcasting under the single brand Qazaq TV.
Since November 16, 2017, KAZAKH TV channel has switched to a new format – a multi-channel broadcast in Kazakh, Russian and English languages. Beginning from May 1st, 2018, in addition to the three existing language lines, Kyrgyz language has been added. A bit later, on November 28, 2018, the channel started to broadcast on Uzbek language.
The multichannel signal allows each digital TV subscriber to select a preferred 100% broadcast in each of the listed languages. The new format allows the channel to be available for viewing around the clock in Kazakhstan and abroad.
Full English soundtrack will allow the channel to expand to a foreign audience and more effectively acquaint the world with our unique country, its culture, history, tourism and investment attractiveness.
