Captivating, Compelling, Caribbean

The Caribbean International Network (CIN) has stood the test of time and after 28 strong years retains its viewership of 558, 025 people at any time. According to the Hope Media Survey, CIN is named ahead of Fox, CBS, ABC, and Discovery as among the top 5 channels most-watched during the time CIN is broadcasting.

For the Caribbean diaspora, CIN TV is a connection to their roots through the latest news and captivating programming varying from comedy and drama to food and music; CIN gives them a feeling of being home away from home. Our content boasts the best in television to the Caribbean-Americans living in the 5 Boroughs of New York on Ch.73 and Verizon Fios Ch.26, and the most current Caribbean news to the Tri-State (New York, New Jersey & Connecticut).

It all began with a dream and a 30-minute episode of the hilarious Oliver At Large, starring renowned Jamaican comedian Oliver Samuels, a key personality on the channel to date. 

Stephen Hill and Ronald Nasralla then created the first Caribbean television service targeting the rapidly growing Caribbean population. Twenty-eight years later, CIN has been endorsed as the “The Genuine Voice of the Caribbean”, through the delivery of quality programming, giving viewers a first-class escapade back to their Caribbean roots.

The next best thing to being in the Caribbean is watching CIN TV.
