Broadcaster to counter anti-Christian kids TV in Arab World
Wednesday, December 5th, 2007

Arabic Christian television broadcaster SAT-7 is launching special channel for kids this month to send message of hope to kids in the Arab world who are watching other channels that are thought to be propagating anti-Christian messages. The new TV channel for Kids, SAT-7 KIDS, “will go live exactly one minute after midnight on December 9th, and will be available for Arab children to watch when they wake up on December 10th,” says Rita El Mounayer, SAT-7’s director of programming.

According to SAT-7’s El Mounayer, the station’s teams in Lebanon and Egypt have been working very hard for the launch of the first Christian TV channel for kids in the Arab world. “They are extremely excited and anticipate a huge response,” the director says. “On SAT-7 KIDS, viewers will see wonderful programming for children which will include messages about love, forgiveness and turning the other cheek,” notes SAT-7 CEO Terence Ascott.
