History

As Rediffusion El Kadsre

On July 10, 1960, Rediffusion El Kadsre was launched on channel four in West El Kadsre and it was run by the Rediffusion company. Its programming is very identical to its British counterpart, Associated-Rediffusion, which would later become Rediffusion London.

Vlokozu Television launched on December 1, 1969. It was the first state-owned television broadcaster to be launched by the Vlokozuian government. After its launch, Vlokozu Television's popularity skyrocketed and it overtaked El TV Kadsre 1 as the most-viewed television channel in the Vlokozu Union on February 23, 1970.

Despite its programming structure, it held a powerful news redaction which reported even in most extreme cases, such as on February 11, 1973, when a tornado hit El Kadsre City. It also had exclusive rights to Formula One during its years. Later on, it was sold to private investors by the government, making it fully independent. Vlokozu Television was the most-watched television channel in the Vlokozu Union from 1970 until 1978, when RGN won the title.

The beginning of the end of Vlokozu Television was in 1988, when El TV Kadsre started to plan to launch its fourth channel. When they found that all frequent channels were full, El TV Kadsre then acquired Vlokozu Television. The launch of El TV Kadsre 4 was scheduled two days after but was postponed to almost three months due to the backlash from Vlokozu Television viewers.

As then, laws did not allow extreme postponing of the launching of a new TV channel except excludes a two-month rule was announced in October that year, which eventually meant Vlokozu Television would not broadcast after June 10, 1989, and that meant the definite end of the channel.

Vlokozu Television, on May 27, 1989, in its primetime news program, thanking viewers for patronage and hoped that news anchors would be seen in the future. However, the network signed on normally on June 1, 1989, but it just broadcast feature films prior to its shutdown at 6 pm.

After the launch of El TV Kadsre 4, its online services continued to exist, and the crew that was at the channel just prior to its shutdown were assigned to create eltvkadsre.co.ek/etvk4 in 1990, which contains content that was taken from the archives of Vlokozu Television. This site still exists today.

As El TV Kadsre 4

El TV Kadsre 4 launched on June 2, 1989, replacing Vlokozu Television. The staff of Vlokozu Television moved to El TV Kadsre Television Centre to work for El TV Kadsre 4. As the channel's launch gained major controversy due to Vlokozu Television's demise, the El TV Kadsre management team allowed the channel to broadcast content planned for broadcasting on Vlokozu Television. This later restored the reputation, but not at full scale, because El TV Kadsre 4 was aimed to be primarily educational, arts and not towards trends (however, news aired from the same studio as Vlokozu Television was and 65% of El TV Kadsre programs were retained on the air).

In 2011, it's airtime was split between it, El TV Kadsre 24, and ETVKPS.

On February 2, 2018, after Mia de Jesus was appointed the head of ETVKK and ETVKPS, she had ETVKK and ETVKPS converted to 24-hour and 16-hour channels respectively, leaving only El TV Kadsre 24 time-sharing with El TV Kadsre 4.
