Almost two weeks after the Greek public broadcaster ERT confirmed to wiwibloggs that Greece will be in the upcoming contest, things seem to have begun moving, with a strong rumour of which channel will be the new home of Eurovision in Greece.

Former Eurovision broadcaster NERIT closed earlier this year and ERT was reopened, which left Eurovision fans wondering which channel would broadcast Eurovision and the Greek national final.

As INFEGreece recently reported, it is rumored that ERT2, a channel that mostly deals with cultural matters, will take over Eurovision. This means that the Greek national final, any special Eurovision-related programmes, as well as the Eurovision live shows will be broadcast by ERT2.

What do you think? Is a move to ERT2 good news for Greece?

bavarson: I didn’t reply to your comment because I literally forgot to check for a reply. I can’t say I’m especially interested in longwinded theories about jury corruption.

You just do not have a clue about Eurovision Song Contest.

a. Greece is NOT discriminated by juries. You have no empiric proof of that other than the 6 years you’re complaining about. Why did you leave 2015 out? b. ‘fair’ is a relative term. It can’t be truly measured and is subject to many different factors. You don’t reward extra points to countries based on their position number. c. If you believe the system is corrupt, just don’t be a part of it and don’t waste your time and energy on a corrupt show whose rules and regulations are unacceptable to you. d. writing 10 comments in a row by… Read more »

Maybe you’re afraid to respond to my comments? Why? I really don’t know, what is frightening in them. Could someone enlighten me? Oh wait. Of course, you will not answer to this comment , because you are afraid. OK. This concludes the topic.

Do you really have nothing to add? Reads anyone living the comments on this website?

I do not want to be stupid and when I try to understand some issue, then I must understand it well.

Even if what I write now is not true, I’m confused, because no one has arguments against my theories. Maybe you may not need to have, but why only I pay attention to that? Why only me say that I know, that you don’t need to comment my comments? Maybe you don’t speak english and that’s why you can’t say that my comments don’t need any response?

If ESC is organized, it must be good and fair. Otherwise, this project makes no sense. Don’t do anything half-heartedly.

Classification of places according to their values:
1. 1st place
2. 2nd and 3rd place
3. 4th and 5th place
4. 6th – 10th place
5. 11th – 20th place
6. rest

There is not big problem when someone who deserves to be 20th is 11th. The big problem is when someone who deserves to be in top 5 is lower classified. Poland was destroyed in 2014, Estonia in 2015. Russia also was robbed many times. The jury only once helped Russia in 2015, but they could think, that Russia and Sweden are in battle for 1st place and that’s why Sweden needs a lot more points. Russia should be 1st in 2012, because then they were the best. Now it comes out that they have 2nd place in 2012 and 2nd… Read more »

bavarson: What are you even talking about? Greece had top 10 finishes in four of those years, while the other two (17th and 20th) were fair placings for performances that didn’t work well on the night.

If the jury was scrapped, we’d see a return to the bad old days of the ’00s when crazy crowd-pleasing novelty songs took over at the expense of more subtle performances and Greece would only do well with songs like “Alcohol is Free”.

Eurovision needs two things to proper functioning:
1) a high level presented by the participants
2) fair results

Greece is an example of country, which is discriminated by jury in ESC. They strongly ruined their results in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
