TL is the current Lebanese member of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).[1]


The chair of the channel is appointed by the Lebanese cabinet. Jean Claude Boulos and Ibrahim Khoury were former presidents of the channel during the 1990s.[4] As of 2014 Talal Makdessi is the president of the channel.[2]


As of 2012, Télé Liban became available for viewers in North and South America through over-the-top technology on myTV.[5]
