2000 Today

MEGA Channel was the first of the privately-owned stations to begin broadcasting in Greece - providing, for the first time, competition to the State-owned stations. Wholly owned by the publishing consortium Teletypos SA, MEGA Channel first went on air in November 1989 and has since become one of the most popular stations in Greece - usually fighting it out with ANT1 in the ratings. MEGA Channel is available terestrially to the whole of Greece, and is also one of the stations in the channel line-up on the Nova digital satellite broadcasting system. It also broadcasts its programmes in Cyprus, and in both America and Australia through the MEGA Cosmos satellite channel.
