Two thirds of Arab satellite TV channels have online sites

Jordan: Tuesday, September 24 - 2013 @ 00:00

Spurred by the increasing uptake of the Internet service in the Arab World, many channels in the Arab TV industry have established an online presence. The Arab Advisors Group analysis reveals that 83% of channels with an online presence have an enhanced presence. An enhanced online presence includes channels that have corresponding portals. The portals portray the channels’ services and the integration between the satellite channel and its online presence is strong. Moreover, a number of satellite channels with basic online presence (where the integration between the satellite channel and its content and service availability is relatively weak) demonstrate their intention of enhancing their online services.

A new report, “Online Presence of FTA Satellite Channels in the Arab World 2013” was released to the Arab Advisors Group’s Media Strategic Research Service subscribers in August, 2013. This report can be purchased from the Arab Advisors Group for only $1,400. The 63-page report, which has 26 detailed exhibits, provides a detailed analysis of the online presence of FTA Satellite Channels in the Arab World. The report includes analysis and categorization of the online presence of 658 FTA satellite TV channels broadcasting on Arabsat, Nilesat, Noorsat and Yahlive satellite systems. Please contact the Arab Advisors Group to get a copy of the report’s Table of Contents.

“The results show that a majority of the 448 channels that have online presence lean more towards an enhanced online presence. Furthermore, 21.7% of channels with an online presence generate online revenues from their supporting online presence, such as: online advertisement, online shopping …etc.” Ms. Hind Qweider, Arab Advisors Senior Research Analyst wrote in the report.

“Almost 42.7% of the satellite channels have online presence for promotional purposes only and do not aim at generating online revenues. 20.2% of the channels that have online revenue generating features have an enhanced online presence.” Ms. Dalia Haddad, Arab Advisors Research Analyst added.

Any investment in this report will count towards an annual Strategic Research Service subscription should the service be acquired within three months from purchasing the report, or could count towards attending Arab Advisors’ 2nd Smart Handheld Summit 2013 on November 26 & 27, 2013 in Dubai – UAE. Telecom and Media operators can send up to 2 delegates to attend at no charge. Press members can also attend at no charge.
