Porto Canal (Porto Channel) is a television station for Greater Porto and Northern Portugal based in Matosinhos. Launched on September 29, 2006, it is the third regional network launched in the region, but only another network is on air (Região Norte TV), due to the transformation of former NTV (from Porto TV, based in Vila Nova de Gaia) into RTPN, Radiotelevisão Portuguesa's news channel.

In July 2010, Porto Canal launched three new delegations in Mirandela, Arcos de Valdevez and Penafiel, and in the beginning of 2011, three more in Guimarães, Braga and Vila Real, thus covering all of northern Portugal.[1]

On 4 March 2011, Porto Canal announced a partnership with Portuguese sports club F.C. Porto.[2] On 1 August 2011, F.C. Porto assumed the management of Porto Canal, launching two new F.C. Porto related programs, Flash Porto and Somos Porto.[3] Porto Canal also broadcasts live full matches of the F.C. Porto teams of football (only FC Porto B home games), basketball, handball and rink hockey.

Porto Canal is available in the cable and satellite package of ZON TV Cabo and Meo and on the IPTV packages of Vodafone TV Net Voz and Optimus Clix.
