“As a growing brand providing premium content across the MENA region, it’s important that we work to secure the investment that we put into showing high-value live sports and entertainment content. In doing so, we can continue to focus on providing the best experience and the latest technology for our customers,” said Yousef Al-Obaidly, deputy chief executive officer, beIN Media Group.
