Sky TG24 is a Canadian Category B Italian language specialty channel. It is owned by Telelatino Network Inc, a consortium majority owned by Corus Entertainment. It is an all news, information, and talk TV channel. It is primarily a simulcast of the Italian news channel Sky TG24, with Canadian advertising and added Canadian content due to CRTC licensing regulations.

It was primarily distributed through a package with two other channels called Super Trio Italiano; the other two channel being Leonardo World and Video Italia. However, on September 11, 2007, Vidéotron dropped all three channels and on September 18, 2007, all other providers that carried the package dropped the remaining channels except for Sky TG24.
