; Wiki: ERT World (formerly ERT SAT) is an internationally broadcast Greek-language channel run by Greece’s national broadcaster Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT). Programming includes a mix of news, discussion-based programmes, drama, documentaries, entertainment shows as well as sports coverage including live games from Greece’s top soccer league- Super League Greece.In early 2006, the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation revealed that ERT SAT would be undergoing a major overhaul to allow it to better meet the needs of Greeks abroad. Among the changes are new programmes designed specifically for the Omogeneia (Greek expatriates) and a localized schedule to serve each of the newly designated program ‘zones’- North America, Europe/Africa & Asia/Australia. The new ‘program zones’ were to be launched in the fall of 2006 but as of March 2010 have yet to materialize as the channel still air programs according to local time in Greece (UTC+2).
In August 2010, ERT announced that they had initiated a public bidding process to award the worldwide distribution rights for ERT World. The current rights holder, Comart Telecom declined to renew their agreement with ERT and on August 30, 2010 it was announced that PCCW Global would be awarded the distribution rights temporarily for 1 year until the bidding process was completed and a decision made on the rights holder.
