well i wanted to give you a guide about the televsion networks which are available here

1. Orbit Showtime (OSN)on NileSat.  previously two separate networks Showtime Arabia and Orbit Networks.
it's considered the best and almost the only network which provide a variety of channels and Movies on Demand.

Packages and Channels :
the best package start from 244 and the Platinum at 356, there are other less packages too. 

Payments are monthly only if you have a credit card which i assume you have otherwise full payment for one year has to be paid in advance in cash for one year. you may find some local distributors who have 6 months cash subscription.

2. Al Jazeera Sports Channels (NileSat-Hotbird-BadrSat)

Come 2 me

Awesome guide, almost completely clear... I have a situation though which you will hopefully be able to assist with. I have no phone line and cannot get a dish and contract etc because my iqama is being severely delayed. I do have a receiver box though and tv antenna which I receive many channels through. I do also have Internet. Is there a way that I can get good tv (mainly I would be looking for football) considering my situation?


I had OSN installed around 6 months ago. My installer said that I could get a chip to get ESPN America from Al Jazeera market. Any one have any info on this. I would like to get this chip before football season. Where is Al Jazeera Market?
