Description

Launched in September 2010, Sat 7 Plus is an Arabic channel belonging to the Sat 7 network, and consists of television stations focused on the Christian religion. Its coverage area includes the Middle East, North Africa, the Arab world more generally. Based in the Cypriot capital, Nicosia, it is a forum from which Christianity can be spread throughout the home, in a nation where Islam is the main religion and where minority faiths live in the shadows. Under the slogan “Making God’s Love Visible,” the group belongs Sat 7 Plus, and reflects the lofty ambitions of the network. At present, the network also includes channels broadcasting in English, Arabic, Turkish and Farsi (Iran). Its stated goal is simple: to encourage and support the Eastern and North African Christian churches in their evangelistic missions. To this end, programs are modulated and adapted to all social groups.

The Sat 7 schedule takes the best of two other network channels: Sat 7 Arabic and Sat 7 Kids and combines them to create a powerful whole. The station transmits both live and recorded content, with shows that are aimed both to the young Arab generation to other age groups in the Middle East region. Specifically, Sat 7 Plus offers interactive programs for their audience, which cover topics relating to the Christian faith. The lessons conveyed by these shows seek to embrace all streams of Christianity, maximising its impact. Sat 7 Plus allows viewers to experience the life and works of Jesus, through documentaries, cartoons and series.
