Through the years, RTK as a public media continued to accomplish its goals and objectives. This medium was required to keep the balance between programs of general interest and the specific programs that serve the needs of viewers, necessarily, have to do a combination of news programs, sports, programs based on facts, current affairs programs, various documentaries, debates and discussions, cultural programs, etc. Television services of RTK in Kosovo transmitted through Transmission Network Terrestrial in Kosovo (KTTN), which reaches approximately 80% of the population, and in satellite transmission for compatriots living abroad, as well as other Albanians who live and make vacations in regional states, in those of Europe, and those who live across the Atlantic.
