There is no doubt that watching Arabic channels is very important for Arab families, especially at the beginning of their new life in the west.
Psychologically speaking, getting access to TV channels from the homeland reduces the loneliness and alienation, ensures continuous entertainment for the entire family and on top of that is considered a great tool to teach and improve Middle Eastern children Arabic language.
Unfortunately, there is no direct broadcasting of Arabic channels via Satellite in USA and Canada for being outside the coverage area of the Arab satellites like Nilesat and Arabsat as shown in the map below.
Luckily, using IPTV technology, there are receivers for Arabic channels through devices that use the Internet. These devices connect to a TV and transfer the live broadcast of the Arabic channels such as MBC, Rotana, Bein, etc. With these devices you can watch most of Arab channels in USA, Canada, Australia, South America, Africa and anywhere in the world. IPTV receivers offer user experience that is similar to the regular receiver people are used to, using a real remote control and easy-to-use UI menus. These devices can be purchased online and in many cases through local agents in your area.
