English Club TV has signed an agreement for distribution of the channel in the Middle East and North African regions.
ECTV Network Ltd and Mediastream FZE have signed an agreement for the exclusive distribution in Middle East region and non-exclusive in Algeria, Chad, Mauritania, Djibouti, Morocco, Somalia, Sudan and Tunisia.
Since November 1, 2012, the educational channel English Club TV is available for the inhabitants of Asia, Middle East and the African continent through the MEASAT 3A satellite.
Andrew Semchenko, CEO of ECTV Network Ltd, said in a statement: “It’s a great delight for us to become business partners with Mediastream FZE. All viewers from Middle East and North Africa will have a great opportunity to learn English. Having multicultural content, we have created a perfect platform for personal growth and educating. English Club TV Channel is ready to help and support everybody who wants to succeed in their lives.”
Ron Kapadia, President & CEO of Mediastream FZE, mentions: “We are excited that we have an opportunity to represent English Club TV Channel across the MENA region. In our opinion, this is a channel with a difference, which entertains viewers and teaches spoken English at the same time.
“The Arab world is now a melting pot of over 200 nationalities with the primary language, Arabic dominating all communications. However, the spoken English language is dominant worldwide in casual and business communications, which is a well-known fact.
We see English Cub TV as a catalyst for the Arab world to forge effective communications with the rest of the world. It is our pleasure to contribute the development and growth of the English language in the Arabic world.”
English Club TV Channel is now available in more than 94 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and Middle East.
