Former BSTV News intro in 2011

The Belphenia State Television (BSTV) is a state television broadcaster of Belphenia that was established on June 14th, 2011 by the Government of Belphenia and the Angels of the Celestial Sky Guild to replace Belphenia Central News Authority during the events of the Battle of Shirahoshi. BSTV is headquartered in the News Horizon district in the capital city of Remiville.

On June 14th, 2011, Belphenia State Television (BSTV) announced that the state broadcaster replaced Belphenia Central News Authority in favor of covering national and international news reports, weather, sports, traffic, and Belphenian culture including festivals.

On July 13, 2015, Belphenia State Television launched a sub-channel for its national weather forecasts on Belphenian cable and satellite carriers.

On May 10, 2016, Belphenia State Television unveiled a new logo with the Endless Wind symbol designed by Tadashi Manahoshe of the governing body of Great Heart, retiring the old logo with the Sapphire Swan symbol designed by Christina Rockbarrow. In addition, the state-owned broadcaster debuted the new news studio, a weather center, new graphics, and a new news music package.

Major events

Battle of Shirahoshi

Between May 12, 2011 and August 8, 2013, Belphenia State Television launched a special news program focusing on the Battle of Shirahoshi, with Erza Blueautumn and Yoshiki Mochizuki as the main breaking news anchors on Belphenia Central News Authority until June 14 when the old state broadcaster was shut down permanently. Furthermore, the program was moved to Belphenia State Television. On March 15, 2012, regular programming was suspended when the war's main battle took place in Hinahi, Edaleria. The special program ended on August 8, 2013, nine days after the samurai and the Guilds of Belphenia declared victory over the Volkman regime.

2013 Mount Seralia eruption

On June 6, 2013, Belphenia State Television carried the only live television coverage of the eruption of Mount Seralia.

Death of Sasuke Volkman

Belphenia State Television was the first broadcaster to break the news of the death of Sasuke Volkman, interrupting primetime programming in the process. Erza Blueautumn broke into primetime programming at 8:44pm Belphenia Time (9:14pm Zerephine Time, 9:44pm East Belphenia Time) that evening and said:

"We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming and coming to you live with breaking news out of Greridia, Yalobusha. You are looking at a live picture of Greridians erupting in happiness with confetti raining down on the streets and people cheering. This is downtown Greridia, and we have confirmed reports from Erzanna state government officials this evening that the dictator Sasuke Volkman, the man who is responsible for killing Miyake Toshiro in 1940, the brutal killings and torture of many Belphenians and development of weapons of mass destruction, the creation of his cult of personality, and sending Heidi Law on the mission to torture the First Leader of Belphenia Reiko Beard, is dead. It was 7:58pm Belphenia Daylight Time when Yalobusha Prefecture guild master Lily Volkman say the prison guards saw Volkman fell down to the ground at the Yamamari Supermax in Cudahy, Edaleria. Belphenia State Television's Global News Center right now is just beginning to work on the story, obviously calling other news sources and trying to figure out exactly what took place that made Belphenians erupted in joy and happiness. That is, once again, downtown Greridia, Yalobusha at 8:46pm local time."

Juria Go, a BSTV field reporter, was the first reporter on the air. She also helped many BSTV news anchors when regularly scheduled programming became suspended. Later, Edaleria Heartfilia and Seraphina Heartfilia anchored throughout the overnight hours as the celebrations unfolded.

2015 Edohanesse earthquake

Between late-April 2015 and mid-May 2015, BSTV and other national news outlets covered breaking news coverage about powerful earthquakes and the eruption of Mount Edohanesse rocked southeastern Belphenia.
