It was created in 1991 as the Slovak part of the former Czechoslovak Television and was headquartered in Bratislava.

As a parliamentary response to increasing debt, on 1 January 2011, STV was merged with the state-owned public radio organization Slovenský rozhlas (Slovak Radio) to create Rozhlas a televízia Slovenska (Radio and Television of Slovakia).
STV was a regular member of the European Broadcasting Union.
STV operated three channels during its existence. They were named Jednotka (One), Dvojka (Two) (called STV1 and STV2 before a name change in 2004), and Trojka (Three), a sports channel launched in 2008.
TA3 was a TV channel previously broadcast on the 3rd broadcasting circuit in the Slovak Republic from 6 July 1991 to 30 September 1992. The channel was created in order to replace the federal channel OK 3.
Broadcasting was on a 24-hour basis. Between 1987 and 1994, it was limited from 06:00 to 01:30.
