Channel Television is a British television station which has served as the ITV contractor for the Channel Islands since 1962. It is based in Jersey and broadcasts regional programmes for insertion into the network ITV schedule. Until November 2011, Channel Television was one of four ITV companies independent from ITV plc alongside Scottish Television in Scotland and UTV in Northern Ireland. It is currently owned by ITV plc under the licensee Channel Television Limited.
Even after the takeover by ITV plc, Channel Television still has a responsibility to ensure independent programmes for ITV comply with the broadcaster's rules. This results in the station handling compliance for programmes including The X Factor, Midsomer Murders and the British Comedy Awards.
The station's main competitor is the BBC, who operate an opt-out of the South West England news programme Spotlight.
