In an example of how OTT and Connected TV is encouraging the expansion of special interest and overseas content, Arabia One is bringing 13 channels of live 24/7 Arabic culture and entertainment to Freeview enabled televisions and Roku Streaming Players. The content is made available through the Vision TV Network from Vision247.
The content, streamed live in Arabic from across the Middle East to UK homes, covers a wide range of genres from comedy and fashion to documentaries and film. MBC, Dubai TV, Al Jadeed, LBC Europe and OTV are among the networks covered. The service is also available via the PC. The 13 channel package normal costs £9.99 per month (but is on half price offer for the first six months). Vision247 says the streaming speeds are supported by 90% of UK homes.
John Mills, CEO of Vision247, says: “Arabia One is one of the most exciting new channel packages to come to television. There are more than half a million Arabic speakers in the UK who until now have had incredibly limited access to their favourite shows. Now viewers can watch the very latest programmes from across the Arabic world with the whole family.”
