Jubilife TV produces many television programs broadcast all around the Sinnoh region. Each program includes information about events happening around Sinnoh, including swarming Pokémon and weather affecting different routes. They may also contain information about the player, which can be customized by speaking to a number of interviewers and can be found scattered across the region. Answers to the interviewers' questions are limited, but more answers can be added by learning trendy phrases in Snowpoint City. At the conclusion of each program, a series of advertisements can be watched until the player leaves the room.

There are eight programs in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and nine programs in Pokémon Platinum, each of which airs multiple shows.

In addition to the following shows, Jubilife TV is mentioned to have produced the specials aired on Nationwide Net at the beginning of the game: "Search for the Red Gyarados!" in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and "Let's Ask Prof. Rowan!" in Pokémon Platinum. At the Survival Area, the player encounters the cameraman responsible for this story. In Platinum, this person can be found blocking the entrance to Lake Valor hoping to see Azelf before Team Galactic detonates the Galactic Bomb there.
