Nessma El Jadida, formerly known as Nessma TV (Arabic: قناة نسمة, translation: "Breeze TV") and Nessma Rouge was a commercial TV channel based in Tunisia, targeting Tunisia and the Maghreb countries. It was 25% owned by the Italian company Mediaset, controlled by Silvio Berlusconi. All programmes broadcast on this channel had subtitles in French or Maghrebi Arabic. It broadcast such programs like the Maghrebi version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, called Man sa yarbah al malyoon.
The TV channel was launched on 16 March 2007, by Nabil and Ghazi Karoui, in partnership with Berlusconi and Tarak Ben Ammar. It was created as a subsidiary of Karoui & Karoui World Group.
On 27 October 2021, the channel was ordered to shut down by Tunisia's broadcasting regulator, which said it was operating without a license. The channel's studios were also raided by Tunisian state security forces, and may have been politically motivated, as Nessma owner Nabil Karoui (the runner-up in the 2019 Tunisian presidential election) who has since been recently and frequently jailed is a rival of President Kais Saied. The seizure was also sudden as the network had been unlicensed for years, but no action had been previously been taken.
The channel was officially relaunched on 11 March 2022 after a negotiation between the representatives of the channel and the president of HAICA on 15 February 2022 and the temporarily license of the channel was granted on 8 March 2022. The channel is now owned by the new managing director Zied Riba under his new company Maghreb Broadcast. The channel's name was also changed to Nessma El Jadida or New Nessma (translation: "New Breeze").
