The channel is available in Afghanistan and Europe through the Turksat 3A satellite. They also have a radio station, called Noorin FM, available throughout Afghanistan on 94.4FM. The channel airs Hindi serials dubbed in Persian and Dari such as Kahiin To Hoga. It is the fifth most watched channel in Afghanishtan, Lemar TV being the fourth.

In December 2021, broadcasting was paused when the channel owner Aref Noori was arrested by the Taliban regime. He was released a day later.[2] But the status of the television and radio stations remain unclear and its website has gone down.
