Fourteen service providers in nine countries in the MENA region offer IPTV services, according to a new report.

These countries are: Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The report, from Arab Advisors Group, offers an overview of the IPTV services in the Arab world. The research revealed that GCC countries had the largest number of IPTV providers in the region.

IPTV is in its initial stage of penetration in the Arab World, and is still developing, the report attests.

“As broadband Internet expands in the Arab world, IPTV adoption is increasing,” comments Ms. Hiba Al Atiyat, Arab Advisors Senior Research Analyst. “The competition among IPTV service providers within the same country drives its offered features into frequent upgrades, which makes the user’s TV viewing experience more interactive.”
