coupled with the pace of change and development of the global media
landscape, reaffirms the need for Sky News Arabia a channel
launched from the heart of the Arab world for the Arab world. I
am confident Sky News Arabia will become an icon for objective news
reporting, Al Jaber explained.

definition on the OSN pay TV platform, as well as the Abu Dhabi

This is a momentous occasion for Sky News Arabia and, I believe,
a leap forward for the news industry in the Arab world. Our 400
strong editorial team will aim to set new standards for regional
news through a high quality, engaging news product which informs
viewers of events as and when they happen.

business. Our partnership with ADMIC to create a truly independent
