MBC Drama was officially launched on November 27, 2010 as a family entertainment channel dedicated to Arabic drama series 24/7.
The launch coincided with MBC Group’s 20th anniversary and marked the Group’s 10th channel launch. The channel proved to be a testament to the Group’s success in producing local productions; dramas in particular. MBC DRAMA has also been a catalyst in creating opportunities for local directors and producers to display their work and talent to millions of viewers. These locally produced shows run alongside a variety of top-rated Egyptian, Syrian and Turkish series. MBC DRAMA is distinguished by two additional repeats throughout the day, which offers its viewers the choice of time.
MBC Drama can be received in the all Middle East and North Africa region, through the Nilesat/Eutelsat 7W satellite, and viewers can receive it for free.
