Namorese Radiotelevision (Радийотеле Намора tr. Radiyotele Namora), commonly known as PTH (the syllabic abbreviation of its Shintzi name РадийоTеле Намора) is the public broadcaster of Namor. It is owned by the Namorese government through the Namorese State Broadcasting Corporation (NSBC), which remains the largest shareholder of the network. PTH is available to 301 million households (94.3% of all households with at least one television set) in Namor, making it the most accessible broadcasting network in the country.

The precursor to PTH was the Voice of the Namorese People (VNP), a radio station launched by the Liberationists following the resumption of the Namorese Civil War in NMR 2285. VNP became the primary radio broadcaster in Namor after the Liberationists seized power.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the People's Republic of Namor, the government launched Namorese Central Television (NCTV) in NMR 2300.

Despite sharing the same owner, VNP and NCTV operated independently of each other until NMR 2308, when Defense Minister Shi Lasha orchestrated the Hai Nang Incident in opposition to the Green Fever. While NCTV toed the party line and condemned the rebellion outright, VNP expressed sympathy for Shi and attributed the incident to "excesses" of the Fever. President-General Kiang Su responded to VNP's coverage of the incident by claiming that the haute bourgeoisie had "hijacked" the station. He ordered the merger of VNP and NCTV to ensure "ideological cohesion" within the media, formally establishing PTH. Kiang then placed PTH under the control of the Ministry of Information - an executive ministry - to prevent the network from spreading propaganda for his opponents.

PTH began color television broadcasts in NMR 2310 ahead of Kiang's second inauguration as President-General.

After Kiang's downfall, PTH was granted more independence from the party - a move that was ironically facilitated by Kiang's efforts to place the broadcaster under state control. During the presidency of Antelope Gelai, PTH's programs helped promote the administration's economic and political reforms. Additionally, PTH started producing dramas that were not politically-themed, such as the Namorese Mythology series which earned PTH widespread popularity.

PTH World Radio was launched in NMR 2336 in the wake of the Third Namo-Luziycan War as part of a drive to develop Namor's soft power. PTH World Radio originally had services in four languages (English, French, Katranjian and Luziycan), but later expanded to over 50 languages. Funding for Katranjian and Luziycan-language programs on PTH were slashed to accommodate Voice of Velkia, a separate government-funded broadcaster.
