TV3 is planning to launch a new 24-hour news channel.
The Sunday Business Post reports that the commercial broadcaster is preparing to introduce several new channels, including a 24-hour news service, children's channel and sport.
It is thought the news channel would be rolling as opposed to constant live news.
Last July, Virgin Media Ireland bought TV3 for €80m.
Former commercial director of TV3 Pat Kiely was named its new managing director earlier this month.
