“DISH Network is proud to provide customers who may not have access to our satellite TV service the ability to enjoy our entire lineup of Arabic-language programming through our DISH World IPTV service,” said Chris Kuelling, vice president of International Programming for DISH Network. “By simply connecting our DISH World set-top box to their broadband connection and television set, even more customers can enjoy more than 20 popular Arabic channels.”

DISH Network offers the most comprehensive Arabic platform in the U.S., delivering a wide variety of news, sports, movie and other entertainment programming.

Its lineup of popular Arabic channels includes Al Jazeera, MBC, ART America, Dream 2, Murr TV and more. Packages start at just $29.99. Customers can also choose from several a la carte options like Aghapy TV, Iqraa or Noursat for US$4.99 per month, or the Arabic Music Pack for US$9.99.
