From the January 1st of 2018 HRT has HTV5, the specialized channel for Croatians in foreign countries and for the international public. Satellite signal is available in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. It broadcasts a selection of the content of four HRT national television channels and selection from the archival material.

From 2015, all programming features produced by HRT are available to users at any time with no extra charge on the HRTi multimedia service.

The main bodies of HRT are: the General Manager, the Management of HRT, the Supervisory Board and the Programme Council.

The General Manager of Croatian Radio Television is appointed by the Croatian Parliament for a term of five years.

The Supervisory Board consists of five members, four of which are appointed by the Parliament and one is directly elected by the employees of HRT. Their mandate lasts for a span of four years.

The Programme Council has eleven members. Nine of them are determined by the Parliament (Committee on Information, Computerisation and the Media), chosen among prominent people from scientific, cultural and other institutions as well as from civil-society organisations. Two members are directly elected by HRT employees. Programme Council members have a four years mandate, but half of them leave after two years.

The work of the Council is public and their main duties are to represent and protect the public's interest by conducting program oversight and improving the radio and audiovisual program.
