Afghan TV is an Afghan commercial television station, based in its capital, Kabul. Launched on May 21, 2004, it is owned by Ahmed Shah Afghanzai, an Afghan entrepreneur. It originally broadcast for 18 hours daily, but has been broadcasting for full days since July 2004. The CEO of this Afghan TV channel is Mohammad Hamayoon Sepehr
On 15 June 2011, Afghan TV was launched in on the Hotbird 13°E satellite, meaning that the whole of Europe now can receive Afghan TV. Viewers in the Middle East can now receive Afghan TV on two satellites: Hotbird 13°E and Turksat 3A 42°E.
On 27 June 2011, the name ‘Afghan TV’ (on Hotbird) was suddenly renamed to ‘boxelet.com’. It is unknown why this happened, even though the channel itself is Afghan TV and not Afghan News. Websites like KingOfSat state the channel as Afghan News TV and moved Afghan TV in the so-called channel cemetery.
On 1 July 2011, the channel started broadcasting in higher quality video on Hotbird, just like in Afghanistan.
