The ITI Group has been involved in television advertising production since its early days. In 1985 the ITI Group launched ITI Film Studio, which was originally active in the production of television commercials and later on in the production of feature films, an activity which has been ceased. Endemol-Neovision, another production company formed in 1997 as a joint venture between the ITI Group and one of the leading international entertainment content producers - Endemol Entertainment International B.V., developed, produced and distributed such successful television formats as Big Brother, and Who wants to be a Millionaire in Poland. The ITI Group withdrew from the investment in December 2004. ITI Group's dynamic development in television broadcasting began as early as 1992 where it placed an unsuccessfully bid in a consortium with Reuters and RTL Group for the first nationwide broadcasting license. In 1995 the ITI Group teamed up with CME to bid for the regional licenses and in 1997 having been awarded the Central and the Northern Regional License it launched TVN on 3 October 1997. Today TVN is the leading commercial free-to-air television channel and one of the most prominent TV brands in Poland. Starting in 2001 under the stewardship of the ITI Group the main TVN channel was complemented by the successful launch of a series of thematic channels, namely TVN 24, in 2001, TVN 7 in 2002, TVN Meteo and TVN Turbo in 2003, TVN Style and ITVN in 2004. This channel portfolio has been constantly developed and adapted to meet the audiences’ needs. In July 2015 the ITI Group sold its interest in TVN Group to Southbank Media Ltd., London a subsidiary of Scripps Networks Interactive Inc.
