Watch Afghanistan International TV Live TV from Afghanistan
News TV channel / The First 24/7 International News Channel for Afghanistan. On Sunday, the day the Taliban captured Afghanistan’s capital Kabul, Volant Media UK Ltd., the parent company of Iran International TV, launched Afghanistan International TV (AITV). AITV aspires to serve as a 24/7 international news network to provide reliable information for audiences and protect media freedom in the country.
The situation in Afghanistan is so dire that AITV decided to launch the network prior to the planned start date—which was slated for the United Nations’ International Peace Day on September 21. The hope is that this will fill a media vacuum that has developed with so many people fleeing the country and will provide a critical source of reporting and information amid rapidly shifting events on the ground. AITV, which has started with daily nine hours of live television news and programs, plans to expand to a full 24/7 schedule as soon as possible. But AITV also has a radio stream which is already offering 24-hour news and programs.
