CCN-TV6 began broadcasting on September 15th, 1991 with viewing hours from 6:00 to 10:00p.m. daily. Prior to that date, audience choices were limited as the Government owned Television station was the only choice. Once TV6 was launched, this quickly changed with the opening of the market and very soon there were three (3) Television Stations.
CCN TV6’s rapid growth to its number one (1) position today, has been attributed to our strong Prime Time programming, anchored by the one (1) hour TV6 News nightly at 7 o’clock. We have topped the share of the national viewing audience in 15 surveys conducted over the last four years.
We boosted our programming by also investing in local programmes like ‘Westwood Park’, a ‘Soap Opera’, that currently stands as the most viewed ‘Soap’ nationally.
Added to all of that, is our investment in Sports and the local entertainment industry. Our Production Team handles world class soccer events for ESPN on a fairly regular basis.
CCN TV6 was the first local broadcaster to produce and export Carnival to the outside world through Pay-Per-View in North America.
