Euronews is now available to 450,000 new households in the United Arab Emirates after its launch on Etisalat’s cable and IPTV offer.
Euronews is available in ten languages: Arabic, English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Persian, Portuguese, Turkish and Russian.
Following this agreement, Euronews is now connected to 18 million households in the Middle East.
“I’m delighted to announce our launch in the region with such a key partner as Etisalat,” said Arnaud Verlhac, deputy director of worldwide distribution, in a statement.
“I’m confident that Euronews’ powerful brand and its unique coverage of world events will quickly impress the audience. Thanks to Etisalat’s offer, the channel is available 24/7 in Arabic, but also in nine other language options for its international customers, including expatriates who constitute 38% of the channel’s Middle East audience».
