UTV Connect is an established telecommunications business that operates throughout Ireland.
Formed out of the purchase of Direct Net Access (DNA) by UTV in 2000, and known up until 2013 as UTV Internet, UTV Connect is an all Ireland telephone and broadband service provider operating in both the residential and business markets North and South.
UTV Connect offers an extensive range of telephony and broadband based services - via the BT network in Northern Ireland and Eircom network in the Republic of Ireland – everything from high speed residential and business broadband access to mobile, managed business services and inter site connectivity, working in conjunction with sister company Tibus to offer corporate solutions to businesses of all sizes.
Tibus was established in 1996 and has been part of UTV since 2007. It provides robust digital infrastructure services including managed cloud hosting, content delivery, streaming, high-grade connectivity and associated integration solutions to customers throughout the UK and Ireland.
Serving both public sector and business clients across a number of sectors, it has operations in Belfast, Dublin, London, Helsinki and Australia and is expanding into both the Far East and USA. Tibus focuses on clients that have complex or business critical internet service requirements and can count some of the UK and Ireland's largest online brands amongst its customers.
Technically led but with a singular focus on customer service and delivery, it is a proud member of INEX, LINX and LoNAP. It offers some of the most innovative digital infrastructure portfolios in the marketplace today.
In January 2013 UTV’s two digital marketing agencies Simply Zesty and Tibus Digital merged to form one of Ireland’s largest digital agencies, trading as Simply Zesty, with operations in Dublin, Belfast and London.
With the combined strengths of both businesses, Simply Zesty offers leading brands an unrivalled creative digital marketing and technology service across Europe and beyond under one virtual roof with a dedicated and highly experienced team of more than 50 digital professionals.

UTV Drive is a used cars portal enabling customers to buy and sell cars in Northern Ireland.
Launched in 2009 the site is easy to use and offers an excellent choice of used cars from car dealers and private sellers across Northern Ireland. Since the launch, the site has continued to grow steadily both in volume of cars and the number of visitors regularly using the site.
The portal includes the latest information on the local car news with a new section on the online UTV Drive Magazine. This is a local source with the latest new car reviews and up to the minute motor industry news all written by the leading local motor journalists from across Northern Ireland.
Recruitni.com was established in 1999 and pioneered the introduction of the ‘jobs portal’ in Northern Ireland
This locally owned business developed a reputation for excellent customer service, value for money and a real alternative to the traditional methods of recruitment advertising. This success was recognised by UTV New Media and RecruitNI was acquired in February 2009. Since the acquisition the site has undergone a re-design and continues to add new features which benefit both candidates and recruiters.
In late 2009, a dedicated Executive Careers section (www.recruitexecutive.com) was successfully launched which exclusively carries jobs with salaries of £50k/€50k and over. The Executive section is an All Ireland section on the site and was the first of its kind in this market.
In April 2010, RecruitNI launched a Public Sector section (www.recruitpublicsector.com). This is a dedicated section, giving a central search area for those looking for jobs within the Public Sector. It has attracted significant market interest and remains a significant part of the business for the future.
A wealth of information is available on the site including job related material and videos on current global and local topics. This information is provided by RecruitNI and a number of its clients and local industry experts who are based locally in Northern Ireland.
