In Armenian, luys means light. And the first television channel in Armenian and Turkish, inaugurated in Turkey, goes by the name of Luys TV. It is headed by Turkish-Armenian journalist Aram Kuran, who told local media that the project to create a bilingual Armenian-Turkish channel started two years ago. The Luys TV channel was launched only on the Internet on 6 January 2019 to broadcast Christmas Mass according to the Armenian liturgical rite. It was precisely the large number of people who watched the Mass in Armenian on TV that prompted the promoters of the initiative to create a genuine network capable of broadcasting programs and celebrations in Armenian.
