CytaVision is a digital television service introduced by CYTA (Cyprus Telecommunications Authority) in 2004. The service was formerly called MiVision. It is based on a Broadband IPTV infrastructure, where digital sound and vision is carried through a telephone line to a Set-Top Box and the customer’s TV.

The service provides several thematic channels, video on demand, games on demand, access to a TV portal with useful local information, the capability to send and receive e-mails from the TV set, the use of an Electronic Program Guide (EPG), all through personalized menus, enhanced with parental control access criteria. Consumers can access a catalogue of TV and Video content, which has a precise search facility. Enhanced interactive TV applications and voice over IP are two further avenues that cytavision expects to explore and implement in the future.[citation needed]
