Arabsat Global Tv
Wherever in the world you are, whether you're studying in the U.S., living in South America, enjoying a Safari in Africa, discovering new business in Europe, or enjoying your honeymoon in the Far East or down under in Australia, now you can tune in to all your favorite Arabic TV programs just as if you were home, thanks to Arabsat.

The Global Arabic Bouquet (GAB) is part of our commitment to help Arabic viewers stay connected with their roots and culture from anywhere in the world. Through our global partners, we offer a powerful and cost-effective solution for any Arabic TV or radio program to reach audiences as far away as North and South America, Africa, the Far East, Australia-and beyond.

One bouquet, one frequency


Arabsat combines Arabic TV and radio channels into complete digital bouquets which are hosted on other satellites covering other parts of the world. Even better, Arabsat can combine all channels under one bouquet and one frequency, making it easier for your viewers to tune in. We offer almost total global coverage with excellent broadcast quality.

Finally, a simple, integrated solution to reach audiences globally


With the increasing number of Arabic channels everywhere, coupled with a confusing choice of satellite broadcasting services on various orbital slots, Arabic viewers are finding it more difficult to follow the latest Arabic shows and programs. Other than satellite access, the alternatives are costly and complicated. A tough regulatory environment for satellite services also makes leasing satellite slots from international operators simply inadequate for broadcasters.

To help broadcasters and viewers alike, Arabsat-in partnership with ASBU and GlobeCast-has created an integrated solution which now allow Arabic channels to use one platform and broadcast from within a single bouquet.

Main features

  • Lower costs, with a fixed price and various broadcasting coverage options
  • Higher viewership: selected satellites are the most watched, offering wider coverage
  • Excellent broadcast quality from the best satellite operators in the world
  • All-in-one bouquet of Arabic channels on the same satellite, using the same receiver as if the viewer were at home.
