United Arab Emirates-based YahLive, a joint venture between YahSat and SES, has signed a deal with the Dubai-based free-to-air satellite broadcaster MBC Group to broadcast its portfolio of high-definition channels.
Viewers of YahLive can watch seven MBC Group channels in HD across the Middle East and North Africa, including MBC 1, MBC 2, MBC 4, MBC Action, MBC Drama, MBC MAX and Al Arabiya News Channel.
Sam Barnett, CEO of MBC Group, said: “We are pleased to announce this partnership with YahLive. YahLive is building a proposition based on high-definition television and aims to attract audiences from across the region. Our channels are ‘required viewing’ for many in the Middle East and the ability to watch them in HD is becoming increasingly attractive. This deal should therefore create a strong partnership.”
