Watch Hromadske TV Live TV from Kiev
Hromadske.TV is an Internet television station in Ukraine that started to operate on 22 November 2013. The project was announced in June 2013 by 15 journalists. It is registered as an NGO. The idea originated from journalist Roman Skrypin in September 2012. The channel was planned to start to operate in September 2013. But its first broadcast was on 22 November 2013, at 14:00. It was originally scheduled to start at 18:00; but this time was moved forward a few hours in response to the 21 November 2013 Ukrainian government decree suspended preparations for signing of an EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. During the (following) Euromaidan-protests the channel saw its numbers of viewers heavily increasing. These Euromaidan-protests were caused by the same reason (the 21 November 2013 Ukrainian government decree) as to why the channel started to broadcast earlier (on 22 November 2013).
