Fox launches TV streaming service with Saudi media group

  • Gulf News

Fox Networks has struck a deal with a Saudi media group to launch a new TV streaming service in the Middle East and North Africa.



The subsidiary of 21st Century Fox (FOX) said in a statement that it was partnering with the region’s biggest broadcaster, MBC, to bring Fox Plus to viewers.

Fox’s streaming service, which is already available in southeast Asia and parts of Latin America, will be offered in 24 countries on MBC’s Shahid Plus platform.

Subscribers will pay $4.99 a month to access six categories of English-language entertainment from Fox Plus, including drama, kids TV and the National Geographic channel, as well as Arabic content from Shahid Plus.

Fox’s deal follows a chill in relations between international media companies and Saudi Arabia after Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi agents at the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.
Fox Business was among the media networks to pull its sponsorship from a huge investment conference in Riyadh last month, dubbed “Davos in the desert.”
Many investors and companies continue to give the kingdom a wide berth because of the lingering uncertainty over who was ultimately responsible for Khashoggi’s death.
