GREEK CHANNEL: The head of Europe's public broadcasters arrived in Greece to show support for 2,600 fired staff of the country's state broadcaster and demand the government put the stations back on the air.

LOSS OF SIGNAL: Dismissed workers at Hellenic Broadcasting Corp. are occupying the broadcaster's headquarters and maintain online and satellite pirate programs. The government shut down the station Tuesday, citing the need to make austerity cuts.

TV RIGHTS: The ERT shutdown has drawn growing international criticism, including from Europe's top human rights official.
