In 1992, DVB was started by a group of young activists seeking to bring the world to Myanmar and Myanmar to the world. Long supported by donor organizations and democratic governments, we were originally based out of Oslo, Norway. DVB is now registered in Myanmar as DVB Multimedia Group as a commercial media production house. We broadcast on both C and KU band satellite and our programming is accessible throughout Myanmar and the region. Our internet site www. dvb.no has global reach of audiences involved and interested in Myanmar.
As Myanmar’s sole independent and real-time news broadcaster, we own a unique place in the hearts and minds of our viewers. Today, DVB gives Myanmar residents its best news reporting line-up, with extensive coverage of local, national, regional and global events. Our television programming has been expanded to include opinion, travel, education, entertainment, and lifestyles. DVB has a strong reputation for providing high quality, professional reporting on topics people in Myanmar care about. DVB’s documentaries and ground-breaking reporting have repeatedly won international recognition.
Audience research shows that DVB enjoys a highly personal and trusted relationship with our audience. News consumers rely on us and rank DVB highest among all local broadcasters for credibility and speed. This has also made our audience footprint the largest of any independent international station including CNN, ESPN and CCTV.
