Press TV (stylised PRESSTV) is a English language news and documentary media network, associated with the Iranian government.

It is one of several recent government associated initiatives to provide English language news with views differing from those presented in the mainstream Western mass media (see the "See also" section for other such media networks).

White Press TV is politically incorrect on some issues (such as on criticisms of Israel and Jewish influence), it is generally supportive of the mass immigration to Western countries.

In July 2013 Press TV and other Iranian channels were removed from several European and American satellites (amongst others those of Eutelsat and Intelsat), allegedly because of the Iran sanctions, even though an EU spokesman told the channel that these sanctions do not apply to media.[1][2] In November 2012, the Hong Kong-based AsiaSat took Iranian channels off air in East Asia, and in October 2012 Eutelsat and Intelsat stopped broadcasting several Iranian satellite channels, though the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting managed to resume broadcasts after striking deals with smaller companies based in other countries.[2]

Press TV stated that a YouTube ban in 2013 was due to pressure from the Anti-Defamation League.[3]
