HírTV began broadcasting on January 2nd 2003, and broadcasts live news, investigative reports, political discussion programmes, talk shows, phone in shows, and also certain BBC World News shows like Click dubbed in Hungarian.
HírTV continues to close down at around 12am Hungarian time and start up at 6am this video is played at both close down and start up.
Sorry I do not have much more to write about HírTV.
This video is very good and is actually one of my favourites I have posted on this blog, the quality and production is on par to many national broadcasters and even better than some.
I will let the video speak for itself, it features The National Anthem of Hungary from the start and Flag seen in various shots.

JODX-DTV is a digital commercial television station located in Osaka Japan.
JODX-DTV is branded on air as Kansai TV and broadcasts local news with national and international news from the Fuji News Network, and is an affiliate of the Fuji Network System.
This basically means when networked broadcasts from the Fuji Broadcast System are aired on Fuji TV in Tokyo it will be also aired on Kansai TV in Osaka, however I believe some shows are not simulcasted
Kansai TV also helps produce shows for the Fuji Broadcast System in corporation with Fuji TV.
JODX-DTV broadcasts a ISBD digital signal on UHF Channel 17 on various transmitters in the Osaka Prefecture, Shiga Prefecture, Hyōgo Prefecture and the Wakayama Prefecture. It can also be seen on cable television.
JODX-TV, its analogue parent station originally started broadcasting on November 22nd 1958 broadcasting on VHF Channel 8.
In 1959 Fuji TV went on the air in Tokyo, Kansai TV and Fuji TV quickly created a show exchange program for broadcast content.
I will let this video speak for itself, at the end they show a shot of the Kansai TV headquarters with the Call Sign and I believe written in Japanese Kansai TV Digital Television, this is also read out loud by a female annoucer.
I hope you all enjoy..

AzTV is the state television broadcaster in Azerbaijan.
AzTV broadcasts a wide variety of shows in the Azerbaijani language, mainly news, musical shows and documentaries.
AzTV broadcasts to Baku the capital of Azerbaijan on VHF Channel 3 with a radiated power of 23kW's using I think the SECAM standard.
AzTV also has a series of relays across the country, but can also be seen across the whole of Europe and most of North Africa and parts of the Middle East on Hot Bird 6 satellite at 13.0°E.
AzTV stands for Azərbaycan Televiziyası or in English Azerbaijan Television.
AzTV does not close down often, but continues to play this national anthem video sometime before the start of their new broadcast day.
I am assuming like other former Soviet republics and their satellite countries, AzTV can probably trace its history to the mid 1950's but I have no way of proving this.
This video starts with an ident for AzTV, then the National Anthem video starts, which has the outline of Azerbaijan, The Flag Waving, Coat of Arms and National Anthem throughout with various videos of Azerbaijan.
Finally their digitally created clock leading into the 8am hour with if I remember right a newscast.
I hope you enjoy.

HLDG-TV KNN is a broadcast television station in South Korea with studios located in Busan.
HLDG-TV broadcasts on UHF Channel 19 in Busan and Gimhae, UHF Channel 64 in Changwon and Masan and UHF Channel 62 in Jinju.
HLDG-TV is affiliated with SBS network, and broadcasts a wide variety of local programming including local news broadcasts.
KNN stands for Korean New Network.
Since HLDG-TV is a local station they do not provide a 24 hour schedule, but even the bigger stations air a National Anthem video prior to 6am.
KNN first went to air as Pusan Broadcasting or PSB on May 14th 1995, but on May 14th 2006 they renamed themselves KNN.
Pusan is another name for Busan where KNN is located.
First off we see a test card that maybe unique to KNN, I have never seen it used elsewhere, then a holding card showing I guess the KNN studios in Busan.
Then the National Anthem video, I will let this sign-on video speak for itself, what I can say is the music in the background is the National Anthem of South Korea Aegukga which is also subtitled and the Flag of South Korea is featured a few times as well.
This video seems to be used through-out the SBS Network, I guess it was produced by SBS and distributed to all their affiliated stations.
And then a very graphical informational video on the broadcast purpose of HLDG-TV KNN.
Then into the new broadcast day.

ITN stands for Independent Television Network, and broadcasts an 18 hour a day schedule from 6am to Mid-Night.
ITN broadcasts News and Current Affairs, Music, Variety shows, Drama and Soap Opera type shows.
ITN produces these programmes in Sinhala, Tamil and English.
ITN is based out of Wickamasinhapura, Battaramulla which I believe is located close to Colombo.
ITN is funded through commercials and grants from the government of Sri Lanka.
ITN has 5 transmitters across Sri Lanka and is able to cover most of the island using these.
ITN began broadcasting April 3rd 1979 covering a 15 mile radius of Colombo making it Sri Lanka's first terrestrial television station.
ITN was also the first broadcaster in South Asia to broadcast in colour.
First of we see a holding card with ITN logo and "End of Transmission" written I presume Sinhala, Tamil and obviously English.
Then the video features The National Anthem of Sri Lanka sung by children, the Flag of Sri Lanka and peoples and locations in Sri Lanka.
Finally a few test cards make an appearance and that's the end of ITN's broadcast day.

Canal 13 is a broadcast television station owned and operated by the Catholic University of Chile.
Canal 13 broadcasts on VHF Channel 13 in the capital Santiago using the NTSC colour standard.
Canal 13 has a network of 151 relays throughout Chile, rebroadcasting the signal to other areas.
Canal 13 is also currently testing the three major digital broadcast television methods ATSC, DVB-T and ISDB-T with High Defintion content.
Canal 13 is one of the most popular television stations in Chile, broadcasting soap operas, game-shows to news and investigative journalism, even dubbed The Simpsons, but also Chilean based versions of international television formats.
Canal 13 is seen but some as conservative and right-wing due to its Catholic operators.
Canal 13 continues to close down at around 2am nightly and start up at 6am daily.
Canal 13 began broadcasting in Santiago on August 29th 1959 and colour broadcasts using NTSC standard beginning in 1975.
The video is pretty self explanatory.
Just the close down with taped announcement, test card, holding card, start up with taped announcement and little morning wakeup video.
No national anthem video, this is quite unusual for South America, maybe its juts Canal 13, I will keep my eyes out for other channels.
I hope you all enjoy...

TIBYK Canal 11 is a broadcast television station in San José, Costa Rica run by Repretel who acquired it in 1996.
TIBYK broadcasts on VHF Channel 3 from two different transmitters, both with a radiated power of 1 kW.
The Canal 11 branding puzzles me since they broadcast on VHF channel 3, maybe 11 is their cable channel number, any Costa Ricans able to help? if so please comment.
TIBYK broadcasts a wide variety of shows, their news and public affairs broadcasts are extremely popular and imports shows from many different broadcasters including Televisa in Mexico and Univision in the United States of America.
This video is pretty self explanatory, nice photos and video of people and locations in Costa Rica, with the Flag and National Anthem of Costa Rica used, even the sheet music to the National Anthem gets a shot.
Then "ORGULLOSOS DE SER COSTARRICENSES" appears written over the flag, this translates to PROUD TO BE COSTA RICAN.
Then an ident for Canal 11, and finally a warning notice for the following programme with "El siguiente es apto para todo público" this translates to The following is suitable for all audiences.
Call Sign Information
Broadcast television in Costa Rica all have call signs beginning with TI followed by 2 or 3 other letters, but stations do not actually seem to use them on air, well TIBYK does not anyway.
TI is officially assigned to Costa Rica by the ITU.
So I hope you all enjoy...

RTD Djibouti is government owned television station in the African country of Djibouti.
RTD stands for Radiodiffusion Télévision de Djibouti or in English Broadcasting Television of Djibouti. RTD also run government owned radio.
RTD Television can be seen in Djibouti City on VHF Channel 7 and relays, but can also be seen in most of North Africa, Middle East and Europe on the Badr 4 satellite at 26°E with a relatively small satellite dish.
I have very sketchy information on RTD, all I can say is that the ORTF set-up a broadcasting facility in Djibouti in 1967, I am unsure if this included both Radio and Television broadcast.
Very simple close down, just the Flag of Djibouti flying in the wind with the National Anthem playing.
Then a shot of RTD's control room, then into a test card for the night.
I am sorry I cant provide any more information on this channel
I hope you still enjoy...
