Shine TV (formerly Shine Limited) is a British media production company and part of the Shine Group with offices in London and Manchester.

Shine Limited was founded in March 2001 by Elisabeth Murdoch, daughter of News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch. The company was 80% owned by Elisabeth Murdoch, 15% by Lord Alli, and 5% by BSkyB, which signed a deal guaranteeing to buy an agreed amount of Shine programming for two years.[1]

Shine TV is also a supplier of franchise television to broadcasters around the globe including the BBC, Channel Five, Channel 4, HBO, and the RTL Group.

In 2006 Shine acquired Kudos Film and Television, Princess Productions and Dragonfly Film and Television Productions to create the Shine Group, although they still operate as four separate entities. In October 2014, 21st Century Fox and Apollo Global Management announced the planned merger of Shine Group with Endemol and Core Media Group.[2] This was finalised in 2015.
