CDN Channel 37 (Chain Of News TV S.A.) is a Dominican commercial broadcasting company.
CDN was founded on January 1, 1996 by the Dominican Popular Bank, broadcasting on channel #37. It produced news, special coverage, and sports content. In 1999, CDN expanded by adding more reporters and broadcasts. Content was diversified into productions covering the distinct areas of art, health, economy, debates and opinion. CDN also created a digital platform to expand its scope. In addition, they were the official channel of Major League Baseball in the Dominican Republic.
In 2005, CDN news and sports was included in the Caribbean Group Multimedios led by Manuel Estrella and Félix García.
Another channel, CDN2, was launched in 2008. It contained alternative programming for all ages, and in 2014 became the only Dominican television channel specializing in 24 hour sports coverage, now with the name of CDN SportMax.
In 2013, CDN was relaunched in alliance with Provideo, S.A., led by the journalist Nuria Piera, to investigate high-level national and international affairs. Piera has run "Nuria Journalistic Investigation" on CDN for 29 years on the air. They formed NCDN – a new format that offers a different perspective on the production and content of the programming. Their interactive online broadcasting platform and technology was also overhauled.
