Rádio e Televisão de Portugal, S.A. (RTP; Portuguese for Radio and Television of Portugal) is the public service broadcasting organisation of Portugal. It operates four national television channels and three national radio channels, as well as several satellite and cable offerings. The company came into effect on 31 March 2004 with the merger of two previously separate companies Radiodifusão Portuguesa (RDP; the radio broadcaster) and Radiotelevisão Portuguesa (television broadcaster). RTP is a state-owned corporation funded by television advertising revenues, government grants, and the taxa de contribuição audiovisual (broadcasting contribution tax), which is incorporated in electricity bills.

previous broadcasting operations of the national postal service,
Correios, Telégrafos e Telefones (CTT). Five years later, ENR became
independent of the CTT.
