Watch Belsat TV live from Poland
Belsat (Belarusian: Белсат; Polish: Biełsat) is a television channel broadcasting in Belarusian, launched on December 10, 2007, in response to demand from the Belarusian democratic community for media to provide reliable news and promote the national culture and language in Belarus. The channel is a subsidiary of TVP S.A. From the outset, it has been co-funded by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and international donors.
Belsat's stated mission is ensuring that Belarusians have access to independent news on the situation in their country and former USSR countries, reliable information on their own history, and culture and entertainment programming in their own language. It serves to forge links between democratic communities in Europe, Belarus, and other post-Soviet states, and to support ongoing democratic processes there.
