Babylon Media Company has signed a contract for the lease of one transponder on Yahlive, the UAE-based satellite broadcasting company. With 13 TV channels already on Yahlive including Korek TV and Kanal 4 TV, Babylon Media Company plans to add at least four more exclusive TV channels on Yahlive’s East beam.
With the additions of these channels, Yahlive aims to cater to the Kurdish community living in Iraq, as well as across the East beam region – the Levant, GCC and South West Asia.
Sami Boustany, CEO of Yahlive, commented: “The partnership with Babylon is contributing to the continuing expansion of Yahlive’s growing portfolio of channels and helping drive success in 2015. We are delighted to welcome on board the additional new channels that will serve and meet the needs of the Greater Kurdistan, a key audience for us. This is also further testament that Yahlive is becoming the satellite of choice for viewers in Iraq and across the Region.”
