Arab Advisors Group’s new reports, which were released in June 2022, answer the following questions:

       ·      What are the most favorite satellite TV channels in Egypt, Jordan, KSA, Lebanon, Morocco, and the UAE

       ·      What are the most favorite radio channels in Egypt, Jordan, KSA, Lebanon, Morocco, and the UAE

       ·      What are satellite TV consumption patterns in the aforementioned countries

       ·      And what are radio consumption patterns in the aforementioned countries

“It comes as no surprise that local satellite TV channels were the most favorite in their countries of origin. Nevertheless, we see channels of major media groups topping the list across the total respondents of 473 in the 6 Arab countries analyzed.said Ms. Hiba Rabadi, Arab Advisors Group’s Deputy General Manager. “On the consumption front, media consumers spend on average 1 to 3 hours per day watching satellite TV channels, as reported by more than 65% of total respondents. Radio consumption is relatively less in the analyzed countries than satellite TV; around half of total respondents spend less than an hour a day listening to radio channels.” Added Ms. Rabadi. 

“This notable segment is privy to industry intricacies that clearly differentiate them from the public audience” Commented, Fayez Abu Awad, Chief Advisor, Arab Advisors Group
