SAT-7 Arabic Channel
SAT-7 ARABIC offers a variety of dynamic programmes designed to attract teen and adult Arabic speaking viewers. Compelling dramas, lively quiz shows and talk shows featuring relevant social and spiritual topics encourage viewers to watch regularly.
Christian discipleship programmes such as School of Christ help people to grow in their faith and understanding of the Bible. Many church services are shown on the channel representing different denominations.
Social issues and educational programmes help viewers to improve their lives. One such programme, Plate of Life, encourages healthy eating and shows how this can be achieved on a low budget.
Programmes for women feature on SAT-7 and these can help to challenge stereotypes and improve lives. One programme, And I am not Just a Woman, talks through the issue of women who are heads of households in a culture where this is often a difficult situation to be in.
Music plays a large part in Christian worship and teaching and it has a significant place on this channel. Viewers love music programmes such as We Will Sing. We sometimes use Christian music videos between programmes and created a flashmob music video in a shopping mall in Beirut using a familiar Arabic hymn. These are so encouraging to viewers, particularly isolated Christians.
“To an isolated believer, just to be able to listen to a Christian song on TV is such a blessing. Many Christians are all by themselves; they don’t have contact whatsoever with other believers. But when we switch on SAT-7 we can follow a service, and we can see that there are other Arab Christians.” Young man from North Africa
SAT-7 ARABIC often covers events which will encourage its viewers. It broadcast live across the Arabic speaking region the 12 hour Night of Prayer for Egypt held at the Cave Church in Cairo in November 2011.
