TeleCuraçao (Call sign: PJC-TV) is a television station that broadcasts in analog on NTSC channel 8 in Curaçao, with a repeater in Bonaire on channel 16. The station was founded on July 31, 1960 as the Netherlands Antilles' first television station. American broadcaster founded the station with the assistance of the local government, and assisted Telearuba in starting up later on. At one point, the station had expanded across the remaining ABC islands with repeaters (such as on Aruba).
Initially, the station aired mostly American series (such as Gunsmoke), with local news, but gradually began producing more and more of its own programming, to rely less on American imports, and cater more to local tastes.
As part of Curaçao's digital television transition in 2013, TeleCuraçao added a digital simulcast on UHF 26 in DVB-T, with two additional subchannels.
TV Direct 13 is Curacao's first High Definition Television channel on different cable services. The channel was launced by Jachmin Pinedo, whom also operates Radio Direct 107.1FM. TV Direct 13 offers high quality local entertainment and news.
