ESAT

TV Network

ESAT is the first independent Ethiopian satellite service


Ethiopian Satellite Television is the first ever publicly funded satellite Television station broadcasting 24 hours of news, analysis, and entertainment programs . Ethiopia a country of close to 100 million people has one government owned and operated television station and quite a few FM radio stations that mainly operate in the capital and a few state capital cities mainly focusing on music and issues that are apolitical by nature. ESAT is established with the effort of a few committed individuals to break free the millions of Ethiopians who are seeking a quality information though satellite and web technologies. ESAT's transmission has been forces for 7 odd times to terminate its satellite TV broadcast because of the Ethiopian Governments interference in its transmission. Recently ESAT has started a 24 hours satellite radio transmission and is in the mean time working to re start its satellite TV broadcast. In addition ESAT has recently started a 1 hour shortwave radio transmission to Ethiopia and its neighboring countries.

ESAT will continue its unrelenting effort to produce and broadcast quality programs covering a wide range of issues to its listeners.
