International (SAT7/MNN) — SAT-7 began 2012 with a project
In mid-December, they launched a new Web site supporting its
widely popular Arabic-language children's channel, SAT-7 KIDS, broadcasting via
satellite throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.
The audience of SAT-7 KIDS is roughly children aged 4-13
years old, and most of these kids are savvy enough to want more interaction with
their favorite programs and characters.
As a result, www.sat7kids.com became an open door for the kids
to learn more about the Christian faith. The new Web site features bright colors
and child-friendly graphics, speaking images, sound-backed icons, and two
- A "parents
page" where parents can find answers to questions about programming and for
help in understanding their family responsibilities, and
- Arabic- or
English-access multiplying the number of viewers the Web site may serve.
SAT-7 KIDS, "where your children are
safe," airs original dramas, talk shows, educational material, cartoons,
music programs, live programs, game shows and other programs produced
especially for young viewers. The
ministry team works to develop a spirit of love, dialogue, and giving that
characterizes a Christian worldview, as well as respect for life and liberty,
human rights for all, non-violence and peace.
Is it worth it? Definitely. A recent independent
media survey indicated far more adult viewers are watching SAT-7 KIDS than was
earlier believed. The data reveals an estimated audience of 9 million.
That places SAT-7 KIDS as a unique channel in the Arabic television marketplace — and the only
Christian channel focused on the 100 million children and youth under 16 years
of age now living in the Arab world. The television channel is
also experiencing a rapid increase of views on its YouTube® channel–SAT7KIDS.
SAT-7 KIDS is one of five channels produced and operated by
SAT-7, which broadcasts throughout 22 countries in the Middle East and North
Africa, as well as some 50 countries in Europe. SAT-7 also maintains a support
office in the United States.
