beIN Network and DreamWorks Animation are joining forces to launch the first DreamWorks channel in the Middle East and North Africa, with the new channel joining beIN’s service package on August 1.
The standalone DreamWorks channel first launched in Asia Pacific last summer.
Operating 24 hours a day and available in both Arabic and English, the channel will launch with a lineup including DWA original series Dragons: Race to the Edge, Dinotrux, All Hail King Julien, The Adventures of Puss in Boots and Dawn of the Croods. A morning preschool block will offer Guess with Jess, Roary the Racing Car and Little Red Tractor, among others.
“We are glad to cooperate with DreamWorks and support spreading the content of this channel in the Middle East and North Africa for the first time in Arabic to our subscribers and exclusively on beIN bouquets,” said Yousef Mohammed Al-Obaidly, EVP of beIN Media Group. “We seek to meet the needs of our large audience of children in the region and our goal is to provide educational and entertaining services to children and families through our designated channels. We are preparing for more partnerships with DreamWorks.”
