What Was On C9TV ? Let Us Show You
Before Fiber optic and services like Verizon Fios Internet existed C9TV was an exciting new type of television service provided for by the 1996 Broadcasting Act and regulated by the office of communications (Ofcom). When C9TV launched in October 1999 it was only the fourth local television service in the UK. Lets take a walk down memory lane .Click any of the links below to visit the old page as it looked somewhere around 2004 which is the last time we can find archived images of it
c9tv believes that the tastes and interests of our audience can best be served by paying particular attention to the quality, prominence and scheduling stability of the original local programming within our service.....
Brief History Of C9TVs Start
On the night of the 17th of October 1999 something quite unique took place in the city of Londonderry in Northern Ireland. On that Sunday at around 6.30pm Irish Television history was made. Despite many obstacles a small group of dedicated people launched Channel 9 Television from a tiny one room Portakabin on top of Sherriffs Mountain, the highest point overlooking the city.
Channel 9 was the first ever local terrestrial TV station in Ireland and the first TV broadcaster to exist outside of Dublin, Belfast and Galway.When the project was first announced in the local press two years earlier in 1997 there were many, both locally and further afield, who scoffed and said it couldnt be done and that it would never happen. But now finally Channel 9 was on the air, one of the first 3 local terrestrial TV stations in the whole of the UK to begin operations under the then ITC’s new local licensing regime.
