New All-Icelandic TV Station on the Air

As of October 2 a new television station, ÍNN, on channel 19 on Digital Ísland, hits Iceland’s airwaves with prime time broadcast of solely Icelandic material, between 8 pm and 10 pm every weekday.

ÍNN aims to bring attention to subjects that have not been discussed much on local television until now, and will also host political debates, lighter talk shows and focus on health and consumer issues.

Prominent members of Icelandic society like former MP Margrét Frímannsdóttir and actress Lilja Thórisdóttir will host shows on ÍNN as well as journalist Ingvi Hrafn Jónsson.

The public will also be offered to buy airtime for their own television shows on ÍNN, provided the material is of a certain quality standard.
