TVQ is the Brisbane television station of Network Ten in Australia.

The channel was allocated channel 0 (the 0 was pronounced as the letter O instead of "zero") on the VHF band and was launched on 1 July 1965 as TVQ-0. Just like its Melbourne equivalent, TVQ-0 was initially owned by Sir Reginald Ansett, until the station was taken over in the early 1980s.

On 10 September 1988, Toowoomba station DDQ-10 switched frequency to DDQ-0, and TVQ-0 also changed frequency to become TVQ-10, in time for the channel's broadcast of the 1988 Summer Olympics, at the same time as its broadcasts of World Expo 88, of which it and the entire Network Ten was the official station.

On 30 November 2015, lightning struck the TVQ transmission tower, cutting its power and lighting.
