At long last, the most popular North African channels are coming to SLING TV! We have partnered with NINETNINE, in launching 10 premium North African channels into the U.S. market for the first time to SLING TV customers.
As the top international-streaming platform in the U.S., SLING TV is continually looking for opportunities to connect customers to the content they love from their home countries. This drives us to add premium entertainment that caters to growing, yet underrepresented, audiences. That’s exactly what this partnership with NINETNINE delivers.
For the past few years, NINETNINE’s co-founders, Samir Zehani and Adel Hamla, have focused on finding and bringing the highest quality content to North African diasporas in Europe. As expats, they understand the experience of North Africans living abroad and what they want to watch; their curated selection of channels represents the most highly viewed and sought after content from the Maghreb. We at SLING TV are very excited to bring them to the U.S. for the first time.
The 10 channels are now available for free to Arabic subscribers of SLING’s Al Ostoura and Ala Keifak packages, and they include premium live entertainment from North African networks.
Here’s a quick peek into these new additions:
