Carlton Select was a British digital television channel, owned by Carlton Television. It was launched in February 1997, with its sister channels being Carlton Cinema, Carlton Food Network, Carlton Kids and Carlton World.

Carlton Select branded itself as "The UK's leading entertainment cable channel". Together with quiz shows, films and comedies, the channel brought viewers a wide-ranging choice of high quality programming.

The channel was also available via satellite in Africa, on the South African DStv service. Carlton Select was cable only in the UK, but was on ITV Digital until 1 March 2000. When Carlton Select ceased transmission on ITV Digital, it then went back to cable. On 31 March 2003, Carlton Select closed down for good due to poor viewing figures.

SelecTV ran a cable-only channel of the same name since June 1995 and whose roots stretch as far back as the mid-80s. SelecTV was rebranded as Carlton Select in February 1997.

The channel broadcast on weekdays from 17:00 to 01:00 and at weekends from 17:00 to 02:00. The other hours were devoted to Carlton Food Network, which timeshared each other.
