Hellenic TV GR

Brief History 

In June 2013 the Greek Government took the decision to close down the Greek National TV Channel ERT.

A lot of employees from ERT found themselves without a job and a large number of them found their way to London.

Hellenic TV, with its limited resources, welcome some of them and for two years they cooperated with some journalists, camera-men and presenters from ERT.

One of the people who was at Hellenic TV during this period was Spyros Fren, a News Cameraman with ERT.

When ERT reopened again in June 2015, Spyros Fren decided to go back to Greece with his family, his wife Ifigenia and their two children. When back in Greece he did not forget the hospitality of Hellenic TV and decided to set up Hellenic TV GR, in order to enhance the programs broadcast on Hellenic TV.

He and his team have been working for a number of years and in order to operate as a legal entity in Greece they set up a new company CHEVAL MEDIA GROUP.





The Cheval Media Group, based in Athens Greece has the exclusive task of preparing the productions of Hellenic TV in Greece. 

The HELLENIC TV (GR) based Athens in Greece.


The team of Hellenic TV (GR) has undertaken to produce high quality programs, in order to enhance the productions of Hellenic TV in London and to strengthen the links between the diaspora and Greece.

A number of new programs are now produced in Greece by the Hellenic TV GR -Cheval Media Group team.






An entertaining show with various subjects such as Greek Culture, interviews with personalities from show business, Greek Tourism and the Greek way of Life. 



Greek music has won international fame and this program provides brakes of seven minutes instrumental Greek Music extracts.

This is a contribution to the Hellenic TV Program in London, linking the various centres of the Hellenic Diaspora from all over the world.
