RTP Informação is a Portuguese 24-hour news channel operated by Rádio e Televisão de Portugal available on cable and satellite. The channel was launched in 2001 as NTV, a cable news channel headquartered in Porto. It was originally a joint-venture between PT Multimédia, Lusomundo and the Radiotelevisão Portuguesa. In 2003 it was completely acquired by RTP, and with the merger between RTP and Radiodifusão Portuguesa (RDP), forming Rádio e Televisão de Portugal, it became RTPN in 2004.
RTPN debuted a 24-hour schedule on September 29, 2008. Until then, RTPN simulcasted with Euronews during the early morning. Since mid-2009, RTPN became available outside Portugal, through cable TV providers in Angola and Mozambique. On September 19, 2011, RTPN was renamed to RTP Informação, beginning with a simulcast of Bom Dia Portugal which refreshed its graphics.
Despite most of its programming being news-related, occasionally the channel also airs some sports programming, such as the Olympics and the FIFA Confederations Cup.
