Public Television (DT) (originally as Greek Public Television (EDT)) was a temporary, state television broadcaster in Greece (up to the creation of the three new public channels of NERIT). From 27 January 2014, the management of the DT has gone to the Board of NERIT, to operate the new, permanent broadcaster.[1]

Creation of the broadcaster

In the morning of 10 July,[2] DT started broadcasting on the television frequencies of ERT. The Deputy Broadcasting Minister Pantelis Kapsis in the same day, talked at a well known private TV station (from the old studios of Mega Channel in Paiania), pointed out that it was a matter of hours before of the start of broadcasting regular program and that the EDT would be broadcasting from a private studio. Indeed, at 9pm the EDT premiered by the Greek film I Kiria Dimarhos (The Lady Mayor). The TV was later renamed from EDT to DT.[3] DT ended its broadcasts on May 4, 2014, transforming into NERIT .

Dimosia Radiofonia

On 26 September 2013 in the morning, the Ελληνική Δημόσια Ραδιοφωνία (Elliniki Dimosia Radiofonia - Hellenic Public Radio Broadcasting) starts live broadcasting with a single radio programme called Πρώτο Πρόγραμμα (Proto Programma - The First Programme) in several public radio frequencies. Additionally, www.hprt.gr was launched, as the official website of Hellenic Public Radio Television. The Proto eventually, along with Trito, transformed into NERIT Proto and NERIT Trito, respectively.

On Monday, 10 March 2014, at 7 a.m., the Ελληνική Δημόσια Ραδιοφωνία (Elliniki Dimosia Radiofonia - Hellenic Public Radio Broadcasting) started the live broadcasting of a second radio programme called Τρίτο Πρόγραμμα (Trito Programma - The Third Programme) along with Πρώτο Πρόγραμμα (Proto Programma - The First Programme). The Trito eventually, along with Proto, transformed into NERIT Trito and NERIT Proto, respectively.


On Good Friday, 18 April 2014, ΔΤ2 broadcast a different TV programme to cover only the Basketball Euroleague play-off game between Panathinaikos B.C. and CSKA Moscow. The temporary logo of ΔΤ2 was the same as ΔΤ with a small label "2" on the right side.


Shows that were broadcast by the DT are:


From June, the high definition simulcast of the "DT" started broadcasting, temporarily replacing the channel of the Greek Parliament. The channel is the successor of ERT HD, which was one of the biggest achievements that ERT made, bringing a free Greek High Definition channel, while foreign networks almost exclusively used High Definition. The channel has also been added to the satellite platforms NOVA (channel 101) and OTE TV (channel 103).
