i-CABLE News Channel is the first and only 24-hour full-live news channel in Hong Kong.

The channel forms part of Cable News Hong Kong and is owned by i-CABLE News Limited, and is seen on Channel 9 on Cable TV Hong Kong's channel lineup. News bulletins are presented half-hourly.


The original Cable News Channel debuted on 31 October 1993, as part of Cable TV's launch lineup. The channel was split into two services in 1995: Cable News Channel 1 offered in-depth news analysis and business programming along with several news bulletins at various times of the day, while Cable News Channel 2 provided headline news service 24 hours a day.

On 3 January 2006, Cable News re-organised its outputs : Cable News 1 was rebranded as Cable Finance Info Channel, with a focus on business news; Cable News 2 was rebranded as the new Cable News Channel.
