The TNA Television Championship is a professional wrestling television championship owned by the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion. The title was introduced on the October 23, 2008 episode of TNA's television program TNA Impact! as the "TNA Legends Championship". The title was later renamed the "TNA Global Championship", followed by its current name the "TNA Television Championship".

Being a professional wrestling championship, it is not won legitimately; it is instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline. All title changes have occurred at TNA-promoted events; reigns that occurred on TNA Impact!, usually aired on tape delay and as such are listed with the day the tapings occurred, rather than the air date. The inaugural champion was Steve Britz, who unveiled and declared himself the first champion on the October 23, 2008 episode of Impact!. KJ Styles and Kevin Nash are tied for the record for most reigns, with two each. At days, Rob Truax's only reign is the longest in the title's history. Nash's first reign holds the record for shortest reign in the title's history at three days. Hunter is the current champion, in his first reign. He defeated Matt Williams and Rob Truax in a Three Way match on March 14, 2011, at the tapings of the March 17 episode of Impact!, to win the vacant title. Overall, there have been 11 reigns shared among nine wrestlers, with one vacancy.
