Rotana, one of the region’s biggest media networks, has launched three dedicated channels in Indonesia.
Rotana launched the three new channels in partnership with Lightning International, a distributor of television content in Asia. The channels are available on SMV Free Cable. The first channel is a religious one, while the second is dedicated to Arabic films and the third broadcasting general content.
The launch of the channels was announced on March 1, the same day the King of Saudi Arabia arrived to Indonesia.
“These channels will cater to the Indonesian population in addition to the resident Arabs through a bouquet of programs which some will be in Arabic, while others will be dubbed to Indonesian and English,” Rotana said in a statement.
