Belarus 24 is a general Belarusian public television channel owned by the state. It was launched in 2005, with the main objective being to offer Belarusian citizens living abroad the opportunity to follow current in-country news in detail, as well as to be able to access the main programmes available on the national networks. The programmes are therefore varied but also include the standard news and weather bulletins, as well as a variety of television series. Political programmes, documentaries and children’s cartoons among others are also available to viewers. Belarus 24 works with highly professional journalists and the mix of programmes broadcast are of excellent quality. The channel offers expatriates the chance to monitor and keep up to date with local news in their home Belarus, from the countries they are currently living in. The news is not pre-recorded meaning that viewers can stay informed as and when important events happen. Belarus 24 appeals to the whole family whatever the individual’s age. Whether it is cartoons for the children, a favourite drama series or a political debate, there is something for everyone to sit back and relax in front of. No matter the length of your stay abroad, Belarus 24 will quickly turn into your regular television channel where staying in touch with local Belarusian affairs is concerned.
