El TV Kadsre Television Network is an El Kadsreian mass media and entertainment conglomerate that serves all of El Kadsre. The company was founded in 1910 as a film production studio and launched television operations in 1951 with the opening of El Kadsreian Television, which was later changed to its current name on March 23, 1964. In 1968, the second channel El TV Kadsre 2 was launched. In 1983, the third channel El TV Kadsre 3 was launched. In 1989, following the dissolution of the Vlokozu Union, Vlokozu Television renamed to El TV Kadsre 4.
El TV Kadsre has its roots with the foundation of Flower Film Production on November 27, 1910, by the Sentanese businessman Ryouichi Matsushita. The company's current CEO is his great-granddaughter, Yoko Matsushita. The Matsushita Holding Company was founded in 1932 by Ryouichi Matsushita Jr., the son of Ryouichi. In 1949, Matsushita Studios (now El TV Kadsre Television Centre) was opened.
In the 1960s, El TV Kadsre was helded as the prominent television network in West El Kadsre. Under the ownership of Isamu Matsushita, El TV Kadsre acquired Lio Books in 1965 and El Kadsre News World in 1967. In 1968, El TV Kadsre launched its second television channel, El TV Kadsre 2. In that same year, El TV Kadsre Inc. was reincorporated into El TV Kadsre Television Network.
El TV Kadsre's profits begin to decline at the beginning of the 1970s, due to the competition of Regal Group Network. During that time, El TV Kadsre went on to create the Technic Heroes franchise. Its profits continue to decline until it was purchased by Vlokozuian government-owned Vlokozuian Media Union from the Matsushita family in 1979, after the bankruptcy of the company.
The Matsushita family created Banushen Television in the meantime, and as a result Banushen Television and El TV Kadsre have had an alliance ever since the Matsushita family regained ownership of El TV Kadsre in 1996.
In 1985, El TV Kadsre signed an agreement with Vestron, Inc. to become the new distributor of El TV Kadsre's film library in the United States.
In 1987, the Vlokozuian government sold El TV Kadsre to MCA, only to be sold back to the the Matsushita family following El TV Kexit in 1996.
In 1991, it acquired El Design Group for $12 billion.
In 1995, it acquired several assets of Highlight Communications that had been put up for sale.
In 2020, El TV Kadsre announced that they had decided on continuing their decades-long usage of teletype equipment in their news bureaus and departments despite also using the modern replacements for teletype.
El TV Kadsre acquired a first-run and re-run contract with HD source material for 20th Century Fox Television and Disney Media Distribution.
