Watch Addounia TV Live TV from Syria
Government TV Channel / Addounia TV is a private television station based in Damascus, Syria since March 23, 2007. The station is described by some western media as “semi-official” and a “mouthpiece of the government.” Addounia TV is a sister channel of Sama TV. On September 23, 2011, the Council of the European Union added Addounia TV to its list of sanctioned individuals and entities, on the basis that Addounia TV had “incited violence against the civilian population in Syria. After one months on October 20, 2011 Addounia TV was interrupted on Hotbird. Addounia TV channel said that the sanctions imposed by the European Union contradict media freedom and the international conventions which protect the freedom of expression. Addounia TV has suspended on February 5, 2012 its SMS ‘Breaking News’ service temporarily because it was hacked by the opposition.
