Africa 24 to be on Arabsat in North Africa
CAIRO: Arabsat continues to boost its services and options for television viewers. This week it announced that it has added Africa 24 to its group of channels as part of the increased interest in African affairs.
“Africa 24 has selected Arabsat to expand its coverage and launch in French on Arabsat Badr-4 satellite at 26 degree east to cover the Middle East, North Africa and portions of Western Europe,” the company said in a press statement.
“Africa 24 will be able to offer African programming options to the African communities,” it added.
With large portions of North Africa now being home to African migrants from sub-Saharan Africa, Arabsat said the decision was a positive way of improving access to information pertaining to those who are interested in the services.
Arabsat also announced earlier this month that it was boosting its satellite services with a new satellite that should provide clearer and better reception for users in North Africa.
