Tolo tv live: Introduction
Tolo TV is an Afghanistan-based television station. It was founded in November 2004 and is the first private television station in Afghanistan. Tolo TV broadcasts on a 24-hour basis. The channel broadcasts mainly in Farsi and Pashto languages.
This Television station was established through the investment of Saad Mohseni, an immigrant who returned from Australia. The channel could only be received in Kabul in the first years, but then the channel began satellite broadcasting. The station expanded its broadcast to East Asia and the Middle East.
Tolo TV has been broadcasting for more than 18 years and is the first Afghan channel to offer 24-hour programming. The channel broadcasts news, dramas, entertainment shows and other informative and educational programs. The station also provides live coverage of national events such as elections and inaugurations.
The free way in which this television broadcasts music initially provoked resistance in Afghanistan’s religious circles. For example, after the opening of this television’s terrestrial transmitter in the city of Herat, a group of believers began praying in the Great Mosque of Herat for Tolo TV’s Sunset. After it was announced that Afghan TV had been fined for broadcasting programs that the Supreme Court of Afghanistan deemed to be in violation of Islamic principles, most private broadcasters in Afghanistan began self-censoring their programs, and Tolo TV was no exception. Qaeda was no exception.
Tolo television under Taliban regime
Since the Taliban takeover, media outlets in Afghanistan have been restricted. Stations like Tolo tv have had to remove some of their shows. The broadcast of music and series, especially the foreign series are strictly forbidden and can be punished with severe penalties. Recently, Tolo TV under Taliban has started broadcasting some religious program to contain the radical terrorists (Taliban) somewhat
