Applications Technology (AppTek) has won a contract to provide Al Arabiya News TV with a subtitling service to allow, for the first time, English-speaking audiences to follow an Arabic-language TV news channel designed for audiences in the Middle East, Rapid TV News has reported. The new service will be part of Al Arabiya’s redesigned English website launched in early December 2013 that provides a number of key news bulletins and programmes, fully subtitled in English, one hour after their original broadcast time in Arabic.
