This study led us to this conclusion that the religious TV programs in Iran follow at least four major approaches: occasion-based approach, emphasis on religious sentiments; functional view of religion; and support the Theocracy (religious government/sovereignty). The reason behind these approaches is the intended hegemony establishment, which will form customary processes in television religious programs.
