The first television advertisement was broadcast July 1, 1941 in the USA when the watchmaker Bulova paid $9 for a placement on New York station WNBT before a baseball game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies. It was a simple 20-second spot displaying a picture of a watch superimposed on a map of the US, with a voice-over stating that “America runs on Bulova time.”
Today TV advertisement is generally considered the most effective mass-market advertising format. The average 30-second TV spot during the Super Bowl which is seen by 90 milliion viewers reached $2.7 million in 2008. One would think that the driving force for an advertiser paying such large sums of money is the total number of viewers it can reach. However, the number of viewers within the target demographic is more important to ad revenue than total viewers. Therefore, community oriented TV advertisement is the most effective way to promote your business and the advent of satellite TV is the perfect venue to cater your products and services to a targeted demographic to maximize returns on your advertising dollar.

Support community based programing
Finally, our aim is to reverse the trend of the disintegration of the Afghan society, not by advancing our policitical solutions, views and biases but by using the advent of international television to allow Afghans and the Afghan diaspora to share their views and offer their solutions. With this aim, we hope that Afghans and the Afghan diaspora would tune in to find out what their fellow countrymen think and how they want to solve our problems. We hope this open forum will help people to understand each other’s perspective. Our emphasis is going to be on solutions, ethical conduct and mutual respect. We will aim to adhere to conduct with highest level of civility.
Our television aims to emphasize and highlight what is right with people and how each and everyone of us is an asset not only to Afghanistan and the Afghan diaspora but to the human society as a whole. We are going to emphasize the positive impact that we can expound on our society, our neighbors and our world.
