Nova TV is the most popular TV channel in Croatia by viewership. It is owned by United Group, a European media and telecom conglomerate, since 2018, and before then by CME (a subsidiary of WarnerMedia; pending acquisition by PPF Group). Nova TV has a sister channel, Doma TV, and an international version, Nova World. Its main competitors are RTL Televizija and HRT, the Croatian public broadcaster.
Nova TV was launched in 2000 as the first Croatian national commercial TV channel.
In 2004, Nova TV introduced the famous N-in-an-@ symbol that was in use until 2019. This variant was removed in 2005.
From 2007 to 2019 the Nova wordmark appeared at the lower right of the N-in-an-@ symbol, though the symbol was usually used on its own.
After Nova TV was acquired by United Group in 2018, three TV channels in neighbouring Balkan countries (Pink BH in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Pink M in Montenegro and Top TV in Serbia) were renamed to Nova BH, Nova M and Nova S, respectively, in 2018–2019. They all use a similar logo as the 2007 logo of Nova TV, and were unaffected by the rebranding of the Croatian parent channel in March 2019 (but Nova S updated its logo on 28 February 2020).
After twelve years, on 25 March 2019 at 5:18 CET, the logo was changed, with the letter N from the 2007 logo now being placed fully enclosed in a circle. However, on Nova BH and Nova M the old logo remains unchanged. Even though Nova S in Serbia was launched on the same day, its logo was the 2007 style, but was updated to match the Croatian parent on 28 February 2020.
A new graphics package for the channel was created by Red Bee Media, which builds on the well-known circular shape of the logo and involves rotating red arcs. A new set of idents was also created, featuring ordinary Croatian people in the countryside, that end with them forming a circle around the Nova logo. The font used in the on-air graphics package is called FS Untitled.
On Nova TV HD, the HD version of the logo was removed on 11 February 2020 and was replaced with the normal channel logo.
