TV.AE, a new digital video platform offering free online Arabic content, is now available for subscription.

TV.AE is a UAE based media-entertainment venture that officially launched in June. The platform is geared primarily for an Arabic audience across the Middle East and North Africa region and worldwide by providing Arabic subtitles for its entire library.

Additionally, starting from June 6th, TV.AE will give subscribers access to its exclusive Ramadan based content and first of its kind experience in the Arab World.

TV.AE also boasts a number of impressive features that are not seen on other digital video platforms, Ali Al Shaiba, CEO, TV.AE, explained the service’s functions: “The TV.AE app is launching on iOS, Android mobiles and tablets, and Apple TV, and you can access our web-platform on any desktop or laptop. We will also be rolling out more platforms throughout the year, including Chromecast, Samsung and LG Smart TV’s, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, PS4 and Roku. In addition, we’ve introduced a dual-screen ability that lets the viewer take control like never before. The feature creates numerous possibilities for the viewer such as being able to cast their chosen entertainment from their mobile or tablet onto a TV screen. Additionally, the viewer can use the dual-screen as a means to watch two pieces of content simultaneously on different devices, which is not available on any other VOD service.”

As well as featuring a number of impressive abilities, TV.AE has partnered with some of the largest local and international production houses in order to gain a variety of unique material for their subscribers.

Al Shaiba added: “To differentiate ourselves from similar services we have a clear strategy to enrich our content library with the best international productions from industry giants such as Sony, Universal, and others”.

TV.AE are also actively supporting the entertainment industry with their open call to talented and young content creators. They’re also aiming to support talented producers with their creative ideas to produce Hollywood quality content and showcase it on TV.AE. Thus helping local aspiring producers reach the international film industry.
