But there is another player in the game, February 1, 2013 saw Triangle TV become Face TV.
Face TV chief executive Jim Blackman says he will bring more local news programming to air for the prime-time position.

Face TV will screen international current affairs during prime-time, as well as a range of local content already screened on Triangle TV.
