Nippon Television Holdings, Inc. (日本テレビホールディングス株式会社,   Nihon Terebi Hōrudingusu Kabushiki Gaisha), also abbreviated as Nippon TV Holdings or NTVHD, is a Japanese holding company and the parent company of the Nippon Television Network Corporation (Nippon TV). Founded in 1952, it originally bore the Nippon Television Network Corporation (日本テレビ放送網株式会社,   Nihon Terebi Hōsōmō Kabushiki Gaisha) name until 2012, serving as Japan's first commercial broadcast network. During this time, the network aired several tokusatsu series.

In 2023, Nippon TV Holdings purchased a controlling stake in renowned animation company Studio Ghibli Inc. (株式会社スタジオジブリ,   Kabushiki Gaisha Sutajio Jiburi)—established in 1985—and made it a subsidiary of Nippon TV.[1][2] Ghibli had previously financed Shinji Higuchi's 2012 kaiju short film A Giant Warrior Descends on Tokyo, based on co-founder Hayao Miyazaki's 1982 manga Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and 1984 film of the same name. Nippon TV was the first network to televise the Nausicaä film in 1985, close to 40 years before acquiring Ghibli.[1]
