TV Tokyo Corporation (or TX) (株式会社テレビ東京, Kabushiki Gaisha Terebi Tōkyō) is a television station headquartered in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. Also known as "Teleto" (テレ東, Teretō), a portmanteau of "terebi" and "Tokyo", it is the key station of TX Network. It is one of the major Tokyo television stations, particularly specializing in anime. The station is co-owned by Nihon Keizai Shimbun and Mainichi Broadcasting System, with the former owning the majority share.
TV Tokyo was started on April 12, 1964 by the Japan Science Promotion Foundation. A limited liability company, Tokyo Channel 12 Production, was formed for the channel on July 1, 1968. In October 1973, the name was shortened to Tokyo Channel 12 and took over the broadcasting from the foundation. In 1981, it again renamed itself, this time to Television Tokyo Channel 12.
In 1983, TV Tokyo formed the Mega TON Network (now TXN) with TV Osaka, and Aichi Television Broadcasting. The company shifted its head offices from Shiba Park to Toranomon in December 1985. On June 25, 2004, the company assumed its current English name of TV Tokyo Corporation.
