Egyptian satellite TV channel TeN has said it will resume broadcasting on 11 January, less than a month after announcing it would shut down due to financial problems.

The move is will continue the channel's “media and national role,” TeN said in a statement, according to Al-Ahram Arabic new website.

The channel will “exert its utmost efforts to provide purposeful and enlightened media that serves the nation and society on purely patriotic grounds.”

Earlier this month, TeN announced it would be suspending its broadcast due to financial problems, mainly caused by a lack of advertisements on its screens.

However, the broadcaster said two weeks later that it would resume work following a massive outcry from viewers and after its administration came up with a set of solutions for its financial and operational problems, which include a new funding and advertising policy and a fresh map for its shows.

TeN is a privately-owned channel. It was created in 2011 under the name "Tahrir" following the popular uprising that ousted longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Its name was changed to TeN as part of a rebranding in early 2015.
