The Qatari-owned Es’HailSat is launching a new HD bouquet from Al Jazeera, also Qatari-owned.

The new all-HD bouquet comprises Al Jazeera Arabic and Al Jazeera English currently available and Al Jazeera Mubasher and Al Jazeera Documentary Channel said to be “coming soon”. The new HD bouquet further adds to the attractive line up of TV content currently broadcasting via Es’hail-1.

Es’hailSat’s President & CEO, Ali Ahmed Al Kuwari said: “We are delighted that Al Jazeera Media Networks has once again entrusted Es’hail-1 to broadcast their premium content to the MENA region. A growing number of established and new channels are choosing Es’hail-1, at the leading hotspot for TV content, for the distribution of their channels in MENA.  With Es’hail-1 in operation and Es’hail-2 on schedule to be launched in Q4 2016, we are ideally placed to support the continued growth and expansion of the media sector by providing premium content, communications independence, quality of service and market penetration.”
