About Us

Against the Tide TV (Idź Pod Prąd TV) is a Polish independent TV station providing the most relevant news from Poland, Europe, and the world. In our reporting on foreign events, we focus particularly on the USA, Mid-Eastern Europe, Israel, and the Far East, i.e. the locations where we have our correspondents. We present analyses in the areas of politics, education, economy, history, armed forces, and religion. What distinguishes us from other media outlets and makes us unique on a national scale is taking into account the Biblical perspective in our commentaries. The founder and editor-in-chief of Against the Tide is Paweł Chojecki, the evangelical pastor of the New Covenant Church of Lublin.

Our motto:

Go against the tide. There is no time for other directions.

Our primary broadcasting language is Polish, but we use English too. Some of our shows are also presented in German and French.

The TV can be watched through both YouTube service and the idzpodprad.tv platform. Our shows can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

The flagship shows on our TV:

  • Against the Tide LIVE – a commentary on current events, broadcasted live Monday through Friday
  • News Service – twice a day Monday through Friday
  • Pastor Paweł Chojecki’s messages live – Sundays and Fridays

Our other shows:

  • Counter-evolution – dealing with evolution versus creationism
  • Family ER – counseling for parents and homeschoolers
  • Way to Heaven – discussions by a former Catholic priest and the pastor

Financing:

Why hussar wings?

By featuring the hussar wings in our TV logo, we are referring to a glorious period in Poland’s history when we were both a stronghold of personal freedoms and military power of Europe. Polish heavy cavalry, the hussars, were invincible at the time.
