On the first day of 2018, state-owned broadcaster Croatian Radio and Television (HRT) launched a dedicated TV channel for Croatians living around the world.

HRT launched HRT – HTV 5 on 1 January 2018 for Croatians living abroad in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, with the channel broadcasting specialised content intended for Croatian emigrants and the international public.

The channel also broadcasts a selection of the content from the other four HRT channels (HRT 1, 2, 3, 4) as well as a selection of archival material from HRT.

Among content intended for Croatians outside of the Republic of Croatia and the international public is news in English, German and Spanish, and the documentary series’ Discover Croatia’ and ‘Croatia, My Choice’, portraying the destiny of expat Croatians, returnees and foreigners in Croatia.
