A new channel operated by the Serbian Orthodox Church has been launched today (January 7, the Orthodox Christmas).

Known as TV Hram (Temple), it is, according to Balkan Insight, an online service and its first programme will be an interview with the Church leader Patriach Irinej.

TV Hram will work with other media in Serbia, as well as from Republika Srpska and Montenegro, along with two Russian TV stations and stations from the Greek Orthodox Church.

The Serbian Orthodox Church already operates a number of radio stations.
