Granada Television is the United Kingdom ITV contractor for North West England. It previously held the "North of England" weekday franchise (which also covered large parts of Yorkshire) from 1954 (broadcasting began on May 3, 1956) until 1968 when its broadcast area was split into two franchises.

Granada is the only one of the original four ITA franchisees from 1954 that survived as a franchise holder into the twenty-first century.

Granada's parent company, Granada Ltd., merged with Carlton Communications to form ITV plc in 2004. The North West franchise continues to be held by Granada Television Ltd, part of ITV plc.
