UTV Television

UTV is the Channel 3 (ITV) licensee for Northern Ireland. It is one of the two remaining stand-alone ITV contractors left along with Channel, with the others having grouped into ITV plc (which owns eleven franchises) and SMG (which owns two). Political sensitivities, and a wish to attract more advertising revenue from the Republic of Ireland led to the channel bringing the use of the abbreviation UTV to the fore, as the use of word 'Ulster' is controversial among Northern Ireland's two communities. Since June 4, 1993, Ulster Television has been known on-air as simply UTV, and off air is usually referred to as UTV Group. The registered company name remains "Ulster Television" for the time being, however. UTV's main programmes are the nightly news UTV Live, current affairs programme Insight, the talkshow Kelly, School Around the Corner, and Lesser Spotted Ulster. Independent Television (ITV) is the name given to the original network of British commercial television broadcasters, set up to provide competition to the BBC.

Ulster Television | Ident (1353 words)
It was suggested the Ulster logo represented one of the mountain ranges in the Province, perhaps indicated by the choice of the folk tune The Mountains of Mourne as the accompanying jingle.
Ulster Television celebrated its 21st anniversary on October 31st 1980, and the station transmitted a live gala event from the Grand Opera House in Belfast.
By the early 1990s, Ulster Television began to tap further into attracting audiences and advertisers in the Republic of Ireland, a previous uncharted territory, and certainly one which 10 years earlier would have provoked controversy and dissent from the Unionist camp.
