In addition, because of its live streaming via the Internet, it has attracted millions of loyal viewers from many countries around the globe. If you wonder about the reason of its popularity, the answer is simple: Football!

Duhok TV, which is based in the city of Duhok, the capital of the third, Kurdish governorate that bears the same name, started broadcasting in 1992, but in recent years it has become the favorite channel of football fans as it broadcasts live the most important matches of various national competitions from around the world including the British Premier League, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A, and Portuguese Primeira Liga among others.

Moreover, football fans can enjoy comprehensive coverage of the FIFA World Cup, the Europa League, the UEFA Champions League, and the World Soccer matches.
