TV3 is a general entertainment channel owned by EuroMedia, with a significant news and current affairs element under the banner of National Three News.

About 40% of Three's programming is local, most of which airs at daytime and later at night, with British and American shows taking up most of the evening schedule.

TV3 used in-vision continuity from 1989-2002, and was reintroduced full-time in 2011, It was still being used however on Friday and Saturday nights between 2002 and 2011.

History

TV3 launched in 1989 broadcasting an English simulcast of what was broadcasting on the Scandinavian version, although by 1990 it was broadcasting it's own lineup.

In 2001, a HD version of the channel launched.

At first, TV3 only broadcast few HD programmes, with the 2001-02 UEFA Champions League on TV3. In 2005, TV3 began airing all of their Euro Republican programming in HD, along with their sister channels launching in HD. 95% of their schedule was in HD by 2012.

In 2020, TV3 introduced local news, for the first time since ETV dropped the practise in 2007.
