4E TV is a Greek television broadcasting network based in Thessaloniki. It is a religious-themed channel and is the first television channel in the world dedicated to the Greek Orthodox faith. It is currently available OTA in Central Macedonia and throughout the rest of the country via satellite on Cosmote TV. 4E is also available in Australia and New Zealand through the TV Plus satellite platform and as of September 23, 2014, it is available in Canada via Bell Fibe TV.


The name of the network comes from the initials of the words of the phrase Greek Orthodox Ecclesiastical Information Broadcast (Greek: Ελληνική Ορθόδοξος Εκκλησιαστική Ενημερωτική Εκπομπή) which is also a phrase of the official full name of the company.[1]

The main inspirer of the creation of the ecclesiastical television station 4E was the Archimandrite Theofilos Zisopoulos. In 1993, for the needs of this project, he received a degree in journalism. In 1996 he took over the staff of the station and was elected Chairman of the Board,[2] a position he held for 17 years, until his death in 2013.[3]

In 1998 the station participated in a tender and received a license to operate as a regional television station.[4][5]

In 2007 the station was licensed to "provide free satellite television services" by the Greek National Council for Radio and Television.[4] In the same year it was launched via the Hellas Sat 2 satellite for Europe, Apstar 2R[6] for Asia and Optus B3 for Australia via the UBI World TV platform.[7][8]

In 2012 it broadcast for a few months in the US, Canada and Central America via the SES-1 satellite.[9][10]

It is claimed that 4E is the first private regional station in Greece to start broadcasting its program digitally from the Chortiatis and Filippio transmission centers on UHF 50[11] on October 30, 2008.[12] However, a few months later the digital transmission was forced to be shut down because the network had not set up a provider as ought to do.[13] In 2012, the network started digitally transmitting its programme again alongside TV 100, Euro and Gnomi through the Digital Broadcast Syndication provider, a consortium set up by the four networks.[14] It has been transmitting digitally through Digea since November 21, 2014.[15][16]
