iNews was launched on 1 January 2007 as Sun TV. In its early years, each local television stations within this network bore their own identity, while using unified graphics.
As part of MNC Media's restructuring in 2011, Sindo Media was formed and Sun TV changed its name to Sindo TV, made it the part of the new division along with other properties as Koran Sindo and Sindo Radio (now MNC Trijaya FM).
On 6 April 2015, Sindo TV renamed to iNews TV as it began to strengthen its positioning as a news channel. At the time, all local stations within the network (except Kaltim TV) had lost their own identities to match the national feed.
Since 1 December 2016, iNews TV's on-air bug moved from the right top to the left top.
On Metamorfosa iNews Indonesia Award 2017, iNews slightly revamped its identity once more by dropping TV from its name as it became the unified news division of MNC Media's television networks (RCTI, MNCTV, GTV and iNews itself) rather than just a television channel. It used Roboto font for the new wordmark.
It subsequently rebranded all of their news bulletins to add "iNews" name, including the legendary RCTI's Seputar Indonesia (now Seputar iNews).
