Canale Italia S.r.l. is a Veneto-based Italian broadcasting company.

History

After more than 20 years broadcasting in the North-East area of Italy with the name Serenissima Tv, in 2004 it acquired UHF channels from France 2 relay Telecentrotoscana that allowed the station to be seen in the whole northern Italy.[1] After acquiring other channels to cover Rome, Serenissima TV became Canale Italia.

Canale Italia then proceeded to an aggressive campaign of expansion in the following years, being broadcast in syndication in some regions and acquiring new channels in others. On November 4, 2009, Canale Italia acquired all the channels of Perugia based station RTE 24H that covered Umbria and Tuscany alongside portions of Lazio and Marche.
