Abu Dhabi and SES-backed Yahlive has launched a dedicated bouquet for the Maghreb region.
Yahlive has linked with Paris-based Sahli Media Group to help in assembling the channels, 20 of which are exclusive to the bouquet. The line-up includes original Arabic TV entertainment and a variety of local channels along with premium international channels including BBC Arabic, MBC and Fox Movies.
Sami Boustany, CEO of Yahlive said: “We are excited to be serving the greater Arab Maghreb communities with this new bouquet of channels. It is testament to our strategy of connecting communities with the shows and channels they relate to and want.”
He added: “We have worked closely with regional broadcasters to ensure we are delivering familiar local channels, along with international favourites. This latest development has increased the available channels by 25 per cent, enabling viewers to access over 200 channels from all over the region.”
Samir Sahli, CEO of Sahli Media Group, added: “Bringing a bouquet of exclusive local channels dedicated to our region’s viewers will not only give them more choice, but will allow other local broadcasters to join, thus creating a Greater Maghreb satellite TV hub.”
