iNews was launched in January 1, 2007 as SUN TV. On the early years, each local television stations within this network were bearing 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 April 6, 2015, Sindo TV renamed to iNews TV as it began to strengthen its positioning as a news channel. At the time, all local stations except Kaltim TV within the network had lost their own identities to match the national feed.
Since December 1, 2016, iNews TV's on-air bug moved from the right top to 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).
