On June 18, civil groups held a press conference, calling for the establishment of a Taiwanese public television service channel. The campaign has already gathered support from 212 civil groups and more than 20 legislators.

With Taiwanese being spoken by 80% of the people in Taiwan, some are now advocating for a national Taiwanese TV channel to help promote Taiwanese like the two channels that promote Hakka and indigenous languages. Many that are concerned have signed the petition with civil groups to call on the government to establish a Taiwanese public television channel.

==TAN HONG-HUI CEO, Li Kang-khioh Taiwanese Culture and Edu. Foundation==
The government should utilize the public resources to establish a TV station to help promote the native languages of Taiwan.

==NIKKY LIN Chairman, TCLL, NTNU==
The TV station can use Taiwanese to discuss philosophy, literature, and science and help the viewers understand international situations. I do hope that a Taiwanese public television station can be established sooner.

More than 20 legislators have signed the petition and more are to be expected. Advocators also called upon President Tsai to respond to this issue.

==HO TSUNG-HSUN Dir-Gen Taiwan Citizen Participation Association==
We must make the Minister of Culture respond to this issue. In regional sessions of the national culture meeting, many people made the request to set up such a TV channel, but she did not respond to them. I think the DPP government should understand the importance of balancing the development of the north and the south.

Advocators urged the Tsai Administration to set up a Taiwanese channel in order to respect different cultures and ethnicities in Taiwan and promote equal regional development and language broadcasting rights.

由34個社團發起成立的「催生台語公共電視台」聯盟,下午舉行記者會表示,已獲得212個以上的團體,以及二十多位立委連署,希望蔡英文政府能比照客家電視台與原住民電視台一樣,成立國家級的台語電視台,以維護台語的發展。

政府最近收回中國廣播公司兩個全國性廣播頻道,交由原住民電視台與客家電視台成立全國性廣播電台,要維護母語發展,也有不少團體認為,台灣有超過八成民眾使用的台語,只有部分電視台有台語新聞、綜藝或戲劇等等各種節目,卻沒有國家級台語電視台?所以有不少關心這個議題的人士、和民間團體共同連署,希望政府成立台語公共電視台。

==李江却台語文教基金會執行長 陳豐惠==
政府就應該要用
這個體制公共資源的這個力量
來設立電視台 來補充正常化
我們的台灣母語的教育

==師大台文系主任 林巾力==
也可以用台語來討論
哲學 文學 跟科學等等
我們也可以有辦法用台語
來瞭解國際的局勢
裡面到底發生什麼事
所以我真希望
台語的公共電視台
可以趕快設立

與會人士表示目前已經有二十多位立委參與連署,未來將爭取更多立委參與,他們也希望執政的蔡政府對於成立國家級的台語電視台議題,正式表態。

==公民參與協會理事長 何宗勳==
一定要逼這個文化部長來表態
因為現在召開全國文化會議的
各地方的分區會議裡面
很多人在反映
要設立這個電視台
但是她沒有在政策上立刻回應
所以我覺得說民進黨執政
你應該要去瞭解說
南北平衡的重要性

與會人士呼籲蔡英文政府,透過成立台語公共電視台,以秉持尊重多元與族群獨立自主的原則,保障族群傳播服務之主體性,達到區域平衡與語言傳播平權的目標。
