Right-wing Channel 20 wins tender to broadcast on TV providers’ channel 14

The openly right-wing Channel 20 has won a tender by the Second Authority for Television and Radio, and will be broadcast on channel 14 by all Israeli TV providers.

The move will likely help the channel gain further exposure to the mainstream as it sits alongside Kan (on channel 11) and channels 12 and 13 on television remotes.

It is not immediately clear whether the channel will change its name.

Channel 20 began broadcasting in August 2014 as a station focusing on Jewish tradition with a conservative bent. Sometimes referred to as Israel’s Fox News for its right-of-center programming and claim to offer a countering view to the “mainstream media,” the channel received permission to broadcast its own news programs in December 2016.
