Levant TV is a Middle Eastern online television based in London and broadcasting in English. It covers the moderate Middle Eastern culture with a Levantine flavour. Levant TV is licensed by the UK’s communication regulator Ofcom.
The channel aims to become a well-established television that enriches people’s lives by the furthering of knowledge about the Levantine culture of tolerance and coexistence and by highlighting on the rich history of the Middle East.
Levant TV is committed to create compelling, socially responsible TV shows with cross-cultural sensibility and an international flare. Levant TV is in continuous search for innovative and fresh ideas to produce TV shows that are focused on the interaction between the Western world and the Orient region of the Middle East and are targeted at Western audiences.
Based in London, Levant TV is founded to fulfill the English speaking audience’s curiosity, by enticing them to watch Middle Eastern news from a different perspective as well as drawing their attention to the rich history of the Middle East. Levant TV also appeals to the English speaking Middle Eastern men and women living in Britain and in the MENA region, who take pride in their multi-cultural backgrounds.

The founder spotted a significant gap in the European and British television market for an English speaking channel representing and promoting the moderate Middle Eastern culture in all its aspects, with a Levant flavour; for instance, the existing Middle Eastern televisions in Britain focus mainly on the news and current affairs or religious teachings. Based in London with roots from the Middle East, Levant TV is founded to promote a culture of tolerance and an East-West dialogue via entertainment, cultural and social programmes.
