25 Years of broadcasting Good News
SAT-7 is a Christian TV network for the Middle East and North Africa. SAT-7 was born in the Middle East and is based in the Middle East.
Our production staff are from the region – Egyptians, Syrians, Turks, Lebanese, Iranians, Algerians, Tunisians – who all have a burning passion to share Christ’s love and encourage Christians in their faith, especially in areas where there is no public Church.
SAT-7 is the source of blessing to me. Your shows are like the breath of air that keeps us going, especially for women who can’t leave their houses.”- Nawal from Egypt.
Why television? When you consider that 99% of Middle Easterners have access to television; a large number of people in this region, particularly women, can’t read a newspaper, and 50% of the population are below the age of 25 – a ‘visual’ generation – then it becomes clear what a fantastic opportunity television provides to share the Good News on a vast scale! And, because younger age groups increasingly look for programming on digital and mobile devices, SAT-7 has its own online platform, SAT-7 PLUS, where all its programmes are streamed and many are available on catchup.
Most ordinary Middle Easterners have never met a Christian and have a limited or distorted understanding of what Christians believe. SAT-7’s programmes strive to overcome misconceptions and give a Christian view on issues facing people living in the region; to show that God is interested in everyone and everything that affects them.
That message is also declared loud and clear, through the many opportunities viewers have to contact our programme makers and viewer support teams. Some shows are live and invite viewer participation while others respond to messages sent to our social media pages. In every case, audiences can contact our viewer support teams for more information, prayer and guidance – we receive an average one thousand contacts a day!
Whether on satellite TV, SAT-7 PLUS or the many social media platforms we use, SAT-7’s television channels present Christian truth with creativity and cultural relevance to the widest possible audience.
