UAE-based Sharjah TV has launched a new channel – Al Sharqiya – which will cover news from the cities of Kalba, Khor Fakkan and Dibba Al Hosn. The launch also marked the 25th anniversary of the Sharjah TV which was celebrated on February 11th.
“Al Sharqia will serve many of the Eastern Region’s residents, enriching their ideas and knowledge. We are also keen on ensuring that job opportunities are available for citizens, and the channel will help them achieve their ambitions and serve their nation in general and the region in particular,” said Dr Shaikh Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.
The Sharjah Media Corporation (SMC) also unveiled the new identity of Sharjah TV last week by renewing its programmes and TV commercials with the use of the latest technologies.
