IB3 (Catalan pronunciation: ˈi ˈβe ˈtɾəs) is a publicly funded Balearic television channel.
IB3 began test transmissions on 1 March 2005--the holiday known as "Balearic Islands Day"--with the first regular broadcast beginning on 5 September 2005.
It is owned by the Ens Públic de Radiotelevisió de les Illes Balears and Federación de Organismos de Radio y Televisión Autonómicos (FORTA). The studios are located in Calvià, a municipality of the island of Majorca, near Palma.
Initially, the channel's transmissions were in Catalan language (informative and children's programming) and Castilian (films, series and documentaries). Currently the channel airs all its shows in Catalan only.
