LOONA TV (이달의소녀탐구) are short videos featuring the members of LOOΠΔ during their travels, behind the scenes of jacket shootings and the sets of music video filming, and even their off-time interactions as they have fun.

Each member and subunit had their own 'arcs' of LOONA TV, including the 'Up & Line' event. Specials were released when episodes reached milestones.

The series began on October 12, 2016 with Heejin following her debut, and is currently ongoing with over 330 episodes released as of today.

One episode is released generally at 12:00 (KST) daily. However, there have been days where TV episodes caught up to current events, such as the time between Olivia Hye's arc and yyxy's debut, and hence TV episodes ceased until a new release was ready. In the beginning, the duration of episodes was as short as 18 seconds, while currently, they can last up to 2 minutes.

A spin-off series called LOONA TV Prequel (이달의소녀탐정) was introduced on December 30, 2016. In this series, a pound sign is in the title with determines which girl in order of debut is featured in the episode, for example: #a is HeeJin, #f is Kim Lip while #k is Go Won. These episodes were filmed before the girls were selected as official members so they were sometimes blurred to prevent their identity from being revealed. The episodes also included blurred trainees who were not chosen as members of LOONA.

LOOΠΔ Cinema Theory: Up & LineEdit

The Up&Line arc was the first arc that featured all the members, although they were never seen as a complete group in a single shot. The first episode was episode #285, first released March 3rd, 2018. The arc featured the behind the scenes from the teaser video. Each member had a 'mini-arc' of two episodes dedicated to them, where all the members including 'new combinations' were shown. Olivia was the only member whose first un-blurred LOOΠΔ TV appearance wasn't during their solo arc (or unit arc, for ViVi), as she was first shown for episode #310. Additionally, it was subtly teased that the members were also singing or lip-syncing to their solo songs, which was not shown in the final cut for the teaser. They also wore multiple outfits each from their MVs and all wore white outfits. This understandably lead fans to believe that additional footage might be used for another purpose in the future. The final episode of the arc was LOONA TV #315, released April 16th, 2018.

The final member's dedicated arc started on episode #316. It was first uploaded on April 18th, 2018. The arc, and thus the single member LOONA TV era ended on May 11th, 2018 with LOONA TV #335.

Throughout the arc, the members were seen shooting around Budapest, and interacting with local kids in English.

It was uploaded on June 24th, 2018 and featured the members leaving Budapest.
