Vouli Tileorasi, translated as Parliament TV (from the ancient and modern Greek Βουλή transliterated as Vouli meaning 'assembly' or 'council' and Tileorasi meaning television ), is a Greek network dedicated to airing non-stop coverage of government proceedings and public affairs programming.

It broadcasts live all sessions of parliament and the meetings of the department of parliamentary recess. Also broadcast, recorded not live, the work of the various permanent parliamentary committees.

Vouli TV broadcasts a daily parliamentary newscast that gives briefings on the day to day business of parliament, as well as information on democratic institutions and the parliamentary history of Greece. It also features updates on the European parliament with special emphasis on the Greek members of parliament.

The network also features non-political type programming, a block of cultural programming airs daily from 6pm-Midnight, with documentaries (covering various topics such as the arts, society, nature, history and science), films, theatre, dance, opera and classic music.

Vouli TV is the only channel of its kind in Europe that broadcasts terrestrially, FTA without the need for any special equipment or subscription fees. The signal is transmitted from 19 broadcast centres around the country which enable it to reach over 50% of the population. Efforts are under way to increase transmission so that the entire country can receive the signal. Vouli is also available on satellite, the signal transmits on Hotbird 3 and HellasSat.
