Satellite operator Noorsat has announced that it has met its three-year growth target.
The company has revealed that the number of channels hosted on the Noorsat platform had grown exponentially, in line with its original “bullish business model”.
“We serve broadcasters with complete services ease of access, transparency and affordability,” said Omar Shoter, CEO, Noorsat.
“We have a unique advantage as the only privately owned satellite company operating in the MENA region allowing Noorsat to provide viewers from Arab and ethnic communities with their preferred TV channels without conflicting with traditions or social norms,” added Shoter.
Noorsat broadcasts more than 170 TV and radio stations and is preparing to celebrate its third anniversary this month.
The company announced its expansion over Europe in the 8 degrees West position at this year’s CABSAT.
“We believe the Noorsat 3 digital platform will become the satellite position of choice to provide family-oriented content to the large Arab and ethnic communities in Europe,” said Shoter.
The company has also recently stepped up its live feed and occasional use services.
Noorsat supplied free live coverage of the 2008 invasion of Gaza to the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU) and more recently, was selected to provide live feeds of the Kuwaiti and Lebanese elections.
