New Hellenic Television (Greek: Νέα Ελληνική Τηλεόραση, Nea Elliniki Tileorasi), branded as NET, was the second television network of the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT), the public broadcaster of Greece. It was mainly a news and information channel that broadcast daily newscasts with national and international news, documentaries, talkshows, current affairs programs and also some sporting events. It was originally referred to as ERT2 and ET2 but the name was later changed to NET.

Amid protests of the government's decision to close the public broadcaster, ERT staff continue to operate NET via satellite and internet.[1]



In February 1966, a second channel was created by the Greek military forces in order to let the viewer have a choice. It contained news, sports, fashion, music, drama series and more rarely documentaries, films and children programming. Into the first days of its operation, the democracy changed into dictatorship. When the dictatorship died (1974), military left YENED.


In this decade (1982), YENED renamed as ERT2 and ERT renamed as ERT1. Public broadcasters were the only broadcasters in Greece. ERT2 followed the same programming. In 1987 ERT1 and ERT2 became one company, ERT and the channels rebranded ET-1 and ET-2.


In 1997, ET-2 was restructured as a news and information channel, airing documentaries and sports. It was therefore renamed as NET (Nea Elliniki Tileorasi/New Hellenic Television).
