Satellite and Digital TV Programming

What's showing on television in Cyprus...

Television in Cyprus went digital way back in 2011 so most of the channels once only available via satellite can now be seen on digital TVs.

Nonetheless, as many English-speaking channels can't be accessed via local digital, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV, a kind of 'satellite TV' that uses the Internet instead of a dish) and traditional dish-based satellite TV are still used.


Cypriot terrestrial channels offer programming in both Greek and English. Films and sitcoms in English have Greek subtitles rather than being dubbed, with the exception of cartoons.
