Emissora Palesiana de Televisão, commonly known by its acronym EPT, is a Palesian commercial television network, being launched on August 19th, 1981 by businessman and television presenter Shimon Abarbanel, better known by his stage name Silvio Campos, after acquiring part of the concessions formerly held by Rede Gupi and integrating them with then-independent Rio de Sineiro station STV, which he first signed on in 1976.
It is headquartered in São Gonçalo, with additional operations being held by its owned-and-operated station in Rio de Sineiro, aside from additional owned-and-operated stations in Calênsia (Distrito Federal), Lisém (Mará) and Porto Lépido (Rio Longo do Sul), being owned by Grupo Silvio Campos.
It is the country's third largest and most watched television network, although it has also been criticized for its populist approach, its quality decline over the years, its inconsistent schedule changes and, more recently, its bias towards incumbent President Jardel Baldonaro.
