Armed Forces News Service (Greek Υπηρεσία Ενημερώσεως Ενόπλων Δυνάμεων, abbrev. ΥΕΝΕΔ / YENED) was the radio and later television network of the Hellenic Armed Forces.

In the pre-television era of Greece (prior to 1966) YENED was second only to the National Radio Foundation (EIR) in radio broadcasting. Its programming included News, music, sports and other Greek-centred broadcasts.

On February 27, 1966, the Armed Forces began broadcasting on television through Armed Forces Television (TED). Later TED was also given the name YENED.

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).
