Press Release:


On September 22, 2012, ARABSAT took EBS (ETHIOPIAN BROADCASTING SERVICE) off the air without any warning or notice due to alleged deliberate jamming of satellite signals from Eritrea.

Eritrea’s Ministry of Information reached out to ARABSAT and requested EBS to be removed from the platform, alleging “EBS’s destructive content consciously targets Eritrea and attempts to instigate conflict.”

Apart from these groundless and generalized allegations cited herein, it did not point to a specific instance of any wrongdoing by EBS. EBS worked vigorously to address any and all concerns raised by ARABSAT to no avail.

Since EBS is purely an entertainment channel, which does not foray into politics, EBS believed the allegations in the letter lacked credibility and advised ARABSAT as such. Despite EBS’s best efforts, ARABSAT unilaterally took EBS off the air a second time in late October, again without notice. EBS has begun plans for re-launch on a different satellite platform.

EBS was doing a good job entertaining our people so the slaves got upset and jammed it so we can't enjoy our own show. why don't these slaves get there own tv show instead of Eritv only. joulous, envious slaves. i agree with hahahaha lets buy kidney from Egypt and drive up the demand.

    @hahahah it is beyond embarassing to call you a human being let alone an Ethiopian. If that truly is your view on this issue then it's very saddening. The only thing we all seem to lack is LOVE. We have tried everything else so let's please give LOVE a chance for the sake of our future. LOVE=>UNITY=>POWER

    Ethiopian TV shows in Eritrea freely and it is the most anti-Eritrea channel. Why go after EBS? When will you stop scapegoating and blaming Eritrea for your problems? Why not officially ask Eritrea for explanation or are you afraid of the truth that Eritrea has nothing to do with this nonsense? "Arabs use Eritreans" Very funny, Wasn't that the mantra of the two dead men and the walking dead

    No sooner had Haile Selassie's government made Eritrea Ethiopia's 14th province by dismantling its United Nations-sponsored federal status in 1960, than Egypt took advantage of the situation to establish an office in Cairo, for what came to be known as the Eritrean Liberation Front, ELF. The front started the most protracted militarily and economically debilitating civil war Ethiopia has known.

    Egypt and the Hydro-Politics of the Blue Nile River

    By Daniel Kendie, Ph.D.

    Cairo became the center for the Eritrean Student Union in the Middle East. In 1958, a small military training camp for Eritreans was also opened near Alexandria, where some of the future military commanders received their initial training.

    its amazing what kind of minds some of u ethiopians have..its like you have no way of responding to others' comments humanly ..wtf is wrong with you.. Eritrea probably doesn't even have the capability to jam satilites as CIA funded puppet Woyene does. I actually like some of EBS' program but it's become second nature for some ethiopians to use eritrea as scapegoat

    EBS is undercover Representative of Gunbet 7. They are the EPRDF enemy. They play by the rule with the current Ethiopian Government to smartly put them down. I think the Ethiopian Government is aware of this. The most disgusting graphics images of the governments official including our late prime Meles Zenawi is posted by EBS and their staff.

    WE ETHIOPIANS SHOULD BUY ERITREAN KIDNEY FROM THE ARABS AND DRIVE UP THE DEMAND SO MORE ERITREANS CAN BE SLAUGHTERED FOR ORGAN. WE THEN CAN BURN THE ORGAN AS IT HAS NO USE FROM THESE LOOSERS. LETS BUY AS MUCH ORGAN AS WE CAN TO SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE THIS TRADE. KILL THESE ITALIAN SLAVE. LETS GO TO ADDIS AND EXECUTE ANY ERITREAN WE SEE. ITALIAN SLAVE HORES.

    DEATH TO ALL ERITREANS.

    This is a clear evidence that the Arabs use Eritreans as a tool to discourage Ethiopia in every way possible. The likely reason why EBS is targated by eritreans is, Eritreans have a habbit of intertaining themselves with every thing negative about ethiopia hence they found EBS contents as a chalenge to the lies they fabricate about Ethiopia. it is amazing how far these bigots can go to harm Ethio
