ikono is a private television and internet broadcaster.

ikono's TV channels, ikonoTV and ikonoMenasa broadcast "works of art", ranging from a detailed examination of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Lady with an Ermine” to highlights of this year’s Venice Biennale. There is no narration and no captions, save for the work’s title and its artist.[1]

Television and Internet[edit]

The TV channels broadcast ikono's own productions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the playlist being punctuated by themed programmes.


ikonoTV and ikonoMenasa broadcast the same programmes, although featuring a different content, depending on the channel it is broadcast on.
