LOONA TV (이달의 소녀 탐구, Idalui Sonyeo Tamgu, Girl of the Month Inquiry) 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 “arc” of LOONA TV, including the “Up & Line” event. Specials are released when episodes reach milestones (eg. 100, 200, etc).
The series began on October 12, 2016, with HeeJin following her debut, and is currently ongoing with over 500 episodes released as of December 2019.
One episode is released generally at 12:00 (KST) daily. However, there have been days where LOONA 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 15 seconds, while currently, they can last up to 2 minutes.
A spin-off series called LOONA TV Prequel (이달의 소녀 탐정, Idalui Sonyeo Tamjeong, Girl of the Month Detective) was introduced on December 30, 2016. In this series, a hash sign in the title 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 TV #225, uploaded on November 29th, 2017.

- 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 leads 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 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

It was uploaded on June 24th, 2018 and featured the members leaving Budapest.
- LOOΠΔ TV #356. It is the first LOOΠΔ TV to feature all 12 members in one shot, and regarded as the confirmation that HaSeul is the leader of the overall group, as well as LOOΠΔ 1/3.

It was also revealed that HaSeul's appearance during YeoJin+Secret Hertz was a surprise to the other members. The LOOΠΔ Studio arc followed the 12 members through the 3 days of the event. It started with a full group rehearsal, including The Carol with all the members, then transitioned to LOOΠΔ 1/3 Hertz's slot, ODD EYE CIRCLE Hertz's slot, YeoJin+Secret Hertz's slot, yyxy Hertz's slot and finally LOOΠΔ Hertz's slot.

The next 5 episodes (episode #477 to episode #481 focused on Yves' and Chuu's journey to Hong Kong while filming the XVIX teaser. As the two members were filmed eating in 4 of the episodes, some Orbits declared the sub-arc as the 'Mukbang Arc' in reference to the online trend born in South Korea. LOOΠΔ TV with the full group reprised with episode 482. As per the tradition it focused on the photoshoots for the album jackets, as well as the filming of the Butterfly music video. This revealed that the members filmed some scenes dancing in the water. The arc ended on March 26th, 2019 in episode 507. Starting from episodes 488, some episodes weren't immediately subbed by BlockBerry Creative like they usually do. A fansub team subbed some of them and they can be found on YouTube. BBC ended up adding subtitles to all of the episodes later on, and starting subbing the episodes quickly after their releases again. The LOOΠΔ TV Arc for the group's first comeback started on January 30th, 2019 with
- LOONA TV 508 published on March 28th, 2019 marked the start of the subsequent arc, during which we follow the members' preparation for the LOONAVERSE concert and the behind the scenes of this event. The arc ended on April 10th, 2019 with LOONA TV 519.
