Armed Forces Television (Greek Τηλεόρασις Ενόπλων Δυνάμεων abbreviated ΤΕΔ / TED) was a television network that was sponsored and produced by the Hellenic Armed Forces.

It began broadcasting on February 27, 1966, as an alternative to the National Radio Foundation (EIR) though, initially, the two did not broadcast at the same time slots. Later TED was renamed Armed Forces News Service (YENED) which was the name of its older radio counterpart.

In November of 1982, YENED ceased being an Armed Forces network and was renamed ERT2. In 1987, it was renamed once more ET2. Today the network is known as New Greek Television (NET).
