A troubled region
SAT-7 works in some of the most closed countries in the world. All the countries we broadcast into are within the 10:40 window; 21 of the 25 countries are on the 2016 World Watch List, which highlights the worst places in the world for Christians.
The countries SAT-7 broadcasts into are determined by two factors: the footprint of the satellite systems we are on, and the main languages spoken in those regions. We broadcast in Arabic, Farsi and Turkish, and are expanding programming in minority dialects like Dari (spoken in Afghanistan), Azeri (Turkey, Iran and Azerbaijan) and Berber (North Africa).
