Hannibal TV is a privately owned television network in Tunisia. On 13 February 2004, a broadcasting license renewed ten years is attributed to Tunimedia SARL (whose status is required because an authorization can not be granted to a corporation) against a fee of two million dinars per year. The group of millionaire Tunisian Larbi Nasra launches Hannibal TV on 12 February 2005 at 19 h 00 (Tunisian time) but its official launch takes place on 13 February (the first anniversary of the granting of permission to broadcast the chain). Programs start with an hour behind schedule announced by a reading of the Koran followed by a reading of a letter from the President of the Republic and a gala multicast throughout the evening.
