MG ALBA is the operating name of Seirbheis nam Meadhanan Gàidhlig, or Gaelic Media Service, which was formed under the Communications Act 2003.
This replaced Comataidh Craolaidh Gàidhlig (CCG), or the Gaelic Broadcasting Committee, which itself was renamed under the Broadcasting Act 1996. Prior to that the body was known as Comataidh Telebhisein Gàidhlig (CTG), the Gaelic Television Committee, established under the Broadcasting Act 1990.
