About

GreekTV’s mission is to provide an online platform, away from stereotypes and exclusions, for Greeks and Philhellenes from around the globe to present positive efforts, progressive viewpoints, and interesting subjects often ignored by traditional media, creating an active window into contemporary Greek reality and the world of Greek diaspora.

About

GreekTV is an online destination where 17 million Greeks worldwide can connect, share information, and be entertained while exploring the ever-evolving Greek culture.

Our origins date to a radio show produced in San Francisco by Louis Vitalis in 1940. From those beginnings, GreekTV was born and went on to become one of the longest running ethnic television shows in the United States.

Now, GreekTV.com serves the world online– the website and community offers a fresh, progressive perspective of Hellenism today. Here you will find the best regularly updated original and curated content by, for, and about Greeks— from Athens to Australia, from Santorini to Silicon Valley, and everywhere in between.

Through regularly updated original videos, mini docs, interviews, profiles, and presentations, GreekTV will bring you human stories, unique images and contemporary portraits.

Wherever you are in the world, we’re there too.
