TIO was established in 1979 to provide insurance options for those living in the Northern Territory - in 40 years our focus has not changed.

Based in Darwin, our strength lies in our solid understanding of the conditions faced within the Territory year after year. Whether that be flood, cyclone or whatever else nature can throw our way.

We have insurance products that reflect the needs of business with a wide selection of cover options to choose from.

Channel Nine

Channel Nine’s local parent company is appropriately called Territory Television, founded by a group of Darwin businessmen in 1969.

The station began broadcasting in November 1971 and has continued to grow through support of local industry - and through its community involvement - in the years since, rebuilding along with the city in the wake of the devastation of Cyclone Tracy.

Originally called Channel Eight, the company’s subsequent owners, Nine Network, changed the brand and programming to Channel Nine in 2003 and continues to bring the only commercial news to Darwin though its massive resources across Australia and the world. Our local newsroom ensures Darwin gets a view of events and happenings across the Northern Territory, while Australia gets to know of them through us as well.

In media terms, Nine continues to invest in its local presence and commitment and provides a valuable advertising vehicle to clients across the business spectrum that is overseen and advised by Darwin people here in Darwin - not handed off to teams outside our market who don’t understand the Territory or its business cycle.

Territory Television means just that - it’s our Territory.
