The National Geographic Channel Abu Dhabi is set to be officially introduced to the region after arriving unannounced on Middle East TV screens earlier this month.

While few details have been released ahead of the documentary channel’s official launch – scheduled for July 8, DPME.com can reveal that the channel comprises predominantly Arabic-language content and translations.

A joint initiative between National Geographic and Abu Dhabi Media Company (ADMC), the project has been billed as the “region’s first free-to-air factual entertainment channel”.

A film-financing partnership between National Geographic and ADMC was announced last October marking the beginning of the collaboration.

It is believed that the channel will be broadcast via the Arabsat Badr 6 satellite on the 11,804 MHz frequency alongside ADMC’s other FTA channels such as Abu Dhabi Sports, Abu Dhabi TV and Al Emarat.
