  • Content available for free in Arabic, across 22 countries.
  • Website developed within a content management system that includes a unique import engine that automatically creates content on the website when the TV Channel system updates
  • Video player using the latest adaptive video streaming technologies streaming from major digital partners such as Ericsson and Akamai.
  • Bandwidth-scaling website to cater for users with poor connections
