Some of the best-known programming on Montecaran state television includes:

  • Gazèta - A daily, 20-minute evening news broadcast aired at 22:00.
  • i Craxi - A period drama about the Craxi political dynasty set in the 15th and 16th centuries.
  • ia Vìda da càxa (The life of a house) - A cultural program that explores the history and inhabitants of a different Montecaran house across time in each episode.
  • Màta per te (Crazy for you) - Localization of Crazy About You.
  • Òpera al linbo (Opera in the dark) - Opera performances, including live premieres at the Càxa da Òpera.
  • Mèsa àia Basìlica (Mass at the Basilica) - Catholic Mass broadcast live from the Basilica of Saint Stephen. Often the butt of jokes in Montecaran culture due to its elderly viewership and extremely early timeslot (6:00 on Sunday mornings).

Telèradio Montecara also has the exclusive right to broadcast the Invictus Games in Montecara. Coverage is shown on Telè1.
