The Arab world's major pay TV operators provided choice of 124 pay TV channels by Q3 2010, Arab Advisors Group reveals


New research and analysis by the Arab Advisors Group reveals that as of September 2010 the three main Satellite pay TV operators in the region offered a combined total of 124 channels.



There are five satellite Pay TV providers that cater to the Arab region; Namely: Arab Television and Radio Network (ART), Orbit Showtime Network (OSN), Al Jazeera Sports, Abu Dhabi Sports and Majd. The Arab Television and Radio Network (ART) was the first to be established in 1993. Moreover, in July 2009, Showtime Arabia and Orbit Group, two major Pay TV providers in the Arab World, announced the merger of their Pay-TV operations.

The newly formed company is owned by "Panther Media Group Ltd", a company registered in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). Al Jazeera Sports + is part of Al Jazeera Network, which is headquartered in Doha, Qatar. Since its launch in 1996, Al Jazeera was keen to expand its channels' content into sports.

A new report, Satellite Pay TV operators in the Arab World 2010 was released to Arab Advisors Group's media strategic research service subscribers on November 14, 2010. The report -which has 63 pages and 29 detailed exhibits- analyzes the landscape of Satellite Pay TV and profiles all the main operators including ART, OSN, Al Jazeera Sports, Abu Dhabi Sports and Majd. The report also provides insights into pay TV penetration in the region based on Arab Advisors major surveys.

Any investment in this report will count towards an annual Strategic Research Service subscription - Media should the service be acquired within three months from purchasing the report.

"By September 2010, ART, OSN (Orbit Showtime Network) and Al Jazeera offered 124 Pay TV channels. OSN has the highest number with 82 channels (including the 3 pay-per-view channels), ART came in second with 24 channels and Al Jazeera Sports provides 15 channels dedicated for all sorts of sports events," Mr. Tareq Masarweh, Arab Advisors Group senior analyst wrote in the report.

"Despite the promotions of Pay TV operators, most of the Arab World remains tuned to free-to-air satellite TV channels. Economically, many viewers seem to favor the free content of FTA channels rather than paying for TV content," Mr. Alaa Numair, senior analyst added.

The Arab Advisors Group's team of analysts in the region has already produced over 2,100 reports on the Arab World's communications, media and financial markets. The reports can be purchased individually or received through an annual subscription to Arab Advisors Group's Strategic Research Services (Media and Telecom). To date, Arab Advisors Group has served over 600 global and regional companies by providing reliable research analysis and forecasts of Arab communications markets to these clients.
