BBC Studios has entered into a partnership with BeIN Media Group to produce and distribute content in several countries in the MENA region. While the main countries covered by this agreement are in the Middle East, the two companies are also exploring opportunities for collaboration in North Africa.
As part of this partnership, BeIN plans to acquire additional content from BBC Studios to complement its program schedule in the region. It must be remembered that the content distribution segment of the BBC has been providing a significant number of programs for several weeks to African broadcasters, both in the sub-Saharan region and the North.
BBC Earth, broadcast in linear across the Middle East and North Africa, has proven the effectiveness of the UK group’s content in the region.
