Northern Ireland receives the same basic package of national television and radio services as the rest of the United Kingdom, with regional variations on the BBC channels and UTV. UTV carries most of ITV-1's national programming, but is branded as UTV. It is the last remaining television channel in Britain to feature a live, on camera announcer introducing the evening's programming; usually the effervescent Julian Simmons. To get an understanding of what is happening, you'll find high quality regional news programming on BBC One at 1:30PM, 6:30PM and 10:30PM and on UTV at 6PM.

BBC One Northern Ireland
BBC Two Northern Ireland
UTV (formerly "Ulster Television")
Channel 4

Depending on geographic location and the availability of a signal, you may also receive stations from broadcasters in the Republic of Ireland.

RTÉ One (the main RTÉ national station, broadcast primarily from Dublin)
RTÉ Two (the secondary RTÉ national station, formerly "Network 2")
TV3 (independent commercial broadcaster)
TG4 (National Irish-language station)
RTÉ offers good coverage on the North side of the Border too.

Local radio stations include:

Belfast Citybeat - City centre music station.
U105 - Music and talk station operated by UTV.
BBC Radio Ulster - Music and talk station operated by the BBC.
Cool FM - City centre music station, available throughout Northern Ireland.
Féile FM - West Belfast community radio based on the Falls Road.
QueensRadio - Small university station available in South Belfast.

Regional variations of shows on the national BBC Radio One and the excellent Across the Line on BBC Radio Ulster promote local music, and can be listened to online. These are a great way to find out about forthcoming concerts and gigs. Like television from south of the border, there are a number of Irish republic radio broadcasts which tend to spill over into Northern Ireland such as Today FM and RTÉ 2FM.


Locally published newspapers include:

The Belfast Telegraph
The Irish News
The News Letter
