Does the Russian Church have a TV station?  I see youtube videos with a logo all the time.

I used to be subscribed to both the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and Russian Patriarchate's YouTube channels, but as I don't know Russian, and barely any Greek, it was pretty useless, considering how many videos the Russian Church uploads. I'm sure they must have a TV channel.

We didn't explore much Greek TV to find out if the EP or CoG has one, we pretty much just went to MTV (which was actually good over there) or to a channel that'd have American shows on it.

Just as a note, I saw a video recently of some Orthodox programming that was on MTV in Greece. Thought it was very interesting.

For radio mostly, I use Readon TV Movie Radio Player. It's free and allows you to select channels by country and theme and even record stuff you enjoy while listening to it.

For instance, if you go to Greece/TV/Religious, you'll be able to watch tv4e or, by selecting Greece/Radio/Religious, you can listen to radio stations of various Metropolias: Larisa and Tarnavo, Crete, Patra, Kerkyra, Cyprus, Sisanio and Siatisti, Serres and Nigriti, Veria and so on.

There's also Radio Ekklisia tis Ellados and Trinitas TV and radio of the Romanian Patriarchate.

I don't know if there's actually a radio station there, since I can't read Arabic, but I once found lots of recordings of Syriac Orthodox services and music on this site: http://www.syrianoz.com/

Oh yes.  It is called "Spas" (savior).  There has been considerable controversy about it in the media of late.  I make no comment on the substance of the article which was in FoxNews.com's website but present it here because it is relevant to the discussion:

Here is another article about the channel from Russian news:

And here is an old BBC article about when the channel was founded:
