UTV – formerly Ulster Television – has provided UK channel three programmes to Northern Ireland since 1959. From its beginnings as one of the smallest stations on the ITV network, the organisation behind the channel has developed into a major player in the media market. Alongside the television operation, the group is involved with a number of radio stations in the UK and Ireland and new media businesses, writes Philip Stevens.
In October 2010 UTV HD, a simulcast of the SD transmissions was launched on Virgin Media – a service that will be extended to Sky and Freeview over the coming months.
