MBC 2 is the first 24-hour free-to-air movie channel in the Arab World. During its debut, it broadcast movies and television programmes subtitled in Arabic. The channel is based in Dubai Media City, United Arab Emirates, and is owned by the Saudi broadcaster MBC Group.
The channel mostly broadcasts American Hollywood movies but it also seldom features British, Canadian, French, Indian, Chinese and other foreign films.
The channel largely targets the Arabic audience, especially young adults, and it has an important popularity among Arab viewers.
MBC 2 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.
