The Syrian Ministry of Information, Syrian Radio and TV, has launched a new satellite television channel which will air domestically produced drama series and feature films.

The state-funded channel, which is available free-to-air on Arabsat, Nilesat and Hotbird satellite platforms, aims to promote Syrian arts and culture.

"Syrian artists have set an example of high art,” said Syria’s Minister of Information, Mohsen Bilal, said at the launch of the channel.

“Through drama, we pass the high values of our Arab Nation over to the coming generations in order to preserve its human identity.”
