Prior to AETV, Appadana TV provided 34 years if exquisite cultural programming to the Farsi speaking community. Appadana TV has refocused its attention to a new cause, a greater calling - to introduce concepts of peace and democracy in the world. It seems that every corner of the world is filled with aggression and hate in the name of race or religion. Governments around the world routinely use violence, weapons and war to solve geo-economic problems. AETV will provide a variety of news and programming dedicated to principles of peace and democracy. Let's work together to put down the weapons and make tomorrow's generation better than yesterday's.
