The Israeli Network is a Canadian exempt Category B Hebrew language specialty channel. It is wholly owned by Ethnic Channels Group, with its name used under license from the owners of the Israeli-based TV channel, The Israeli Network.
The Israeli Network broadcasts a wide variety of programming including news, current affairs, dramas, and sports primarily from The Israeli Network. The Israeli-based Israeli Network itself sources much of its programming from Channel One, Channel 2, Sport 5, and Hop TV.
In November 2004, Ethnic Channels Group was granted approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called Israeli TV 1, described as "a national ethnic Category 2 specialty programming undertaking of general interest and devoted to the Hebrew-speaking community."
The channel launched in December 2005 as The Israeli Network initially exclusively on Rogers Cable.
