ERTFLIX, the OTT streaming service of the Greek Broadcasting Corporation (ERT), has become available to international audiences on Apple TV.

The launch is “an important step that brings ERT closer to the diaspora and Greeks around the world,” the Greek public broadcaster says.

Creating an ERTFLIX account to watch on Apple TV allows users to pause and resume watching their favorite programs, while they also have the ability to create their own favorites lists and have access to parental control.

The launch of an international version of ERTFLIX was first announced in October 2023. At the time, ERTFLIX became available on all smart devices, phones, and tablets with iOS, Android or Huawei HarmonyOS operating systems, through browsers, on smart TV apps (Samsung Tizen, LG WebOS, Google Android TV etc.), on Set Top Boxes and on ROKU, with a casting option as well.

International access to TV and radio content from the Greek public broadcaster

“Content for international audiences is constantly enriched and available 24/7 anytime (On Demand), while selected programs are broadcast with Greek and English subtitles,” ERTFLIX’s Apple TV launch announcement reads.

“Users will be able to watch their favorite fiction series, entertainment shows, classic and contemporary Greek short and feature films, documentaries, as well as special selections from ERT’s unique archive,” it adds.

All news programs and bulletins from ERTNEWS, the new 24-hour news channel of public television, are prominently featured on the international version of ERTFLIX, alongside sports broadcasts highlighting matches from various sports and major sporting events.

Besides the rich TV content, radio listeners can tune in to “Voice of Greece,” ERT’s worldwide radio station tailored for Greeks abroad. In addition, specific programs such as an English-language news bulletin and a Greek music show in English cater to those interested in Greek culture and current affairs.

ERT streaming service revolutionized Greek TV

The Greek public broadcaster, ERT, launched its OTT streaming service, ERTFLIX, in April 2020, with the ambition to create “a pillar of culture and entertainment.”

The streamer became an immediate success, featuring ERT’s own shows and productions besides foreign acquisitions that include plenty of international films, fiction series and documentaries.

By August 2020, ERTFLIX had also launched as an app on Android and iPhone.

In December 2023, ERTFLIX premiered its first own drama production, Erimi Chora (Desert Land), an 8-part mini series executive produced by NEEDaFIXER and described as a powerful family drama with “western movie” elements.
