Currently, Teleradio companies properly prmote Azerbaijan and its culture both in the region and in the world.

During the Soviet Union, despite the restrictions, employees of culture and art of Azerbaijan could create a beautiful artistic atmosphere. During the years of independence, private TV channels were established in Azerbaijan, and it made the Teleradio sphere richer. The number of people working in this field has increased. Cable, Internet, satellite, mobile broadcasting has started operating.
