Middle East - Digital Media, Broadband & Internet Market - Overview

Synopsis

Broadband use is increasing rapidly in the wealthier countries of the Arab Middle East and Israel is already one of the most developed broadband markets in the world. However, wide income disparities across the region are reflected in broadband penetration rates. The Arab Middle East has a very flourishing pan-regional satellite TV market with over 400 FTA channels available. Lack of locally produced content in Arabic is a problem both for the Internet and TV sectors. Digital Media in the region is a small but growing market.
