Antena 3 is a Romanian TV channel, which focuses on news and current events. It was launched in May 2005 and is part of the Intact group which is owned by Dan Voiculescu, a former informer for the political police of Nicolae Ceaușescu's regime. Antena 3 is also distributed in Serbia in the Romanian language-extra package of the DTH platform Digi TV. The official website of the TV channel hosts all daily shows which are made available for watching in an archive that is generally reloaded every month. Starting 2006 the TV channel also allowed online users to watch it live on the internet on its official website.

Antena 3 has constant rivalry with the other major Romanian news station, Realitatea TV, owned by Elan Schwartzenberg.

Antena 3 is a part of the Romanian media trust (Intact) that has a 14.6% of the Romanian media market.[2] It is a news and talk show station only and it is pretty much designed similarly to Fox News, but at a much more reduced scale. The station's website receives an average of 50,000 visitors a day being one of the most visited Romanian websites on the market,[3] losing only to Realitatea.NET, (Realitatea TV's web page, Realitatea TV being the first news network by ratings, Antena 3 - the second). By comparison, Gazeta Sporturilor, another media product owned by Intact gets more than one million hits a day, being the most visited Romanian website in the world. The station is one of the five Romanian TV channels that have live anchors every hour 24/7.[citation needed]
