On August 1, 2022 the television station of channel 4 (RDTV) hosted a slightly more than 3 hours celebration of the 70th anniversary of Dominican television. This channel belongs to the government and was founded by the Trujillo family. At that time it was the first Dominican channel, marked the start of Dominican television and made the DR the third country in Latin America with its own television channel (Mexico and Cuba got ahead). This is also the second oldest television channel in the Caribbean.

Two interesting points in the video.

At 2:00:33 is mentioned a pre-agreement with China to further help improve Dominican television.

At 2:04:50 is mentioned a pre-agreemeng with the Instituto de Televisión Española (Spanish Television Institute), the main regulator in the TV of Spain to further improve Dominican television. This was an initiative of president Luis Abinader who said "this channel must be the Spanish television of the Caribbean" referring to the much higher quality of Spanish television. As part of this agreement is the help by Spain in the creation of historical content in Dominican TV, a first of its kind in the DR.

There are other plans including the internationalization of Dominican television.
