As many smart satellite TV viewers already know, nobody beats DISH when it comes to international programming offers for the U.S. market, and Arabic television programming is certainly no exception! You’ll find a rich selection of programming available to choose from that is offered in a variety of programming packages.

The Arabic Elite Super Pack is a programming package that features the most popular channels from the Arab world and showcases the most-watched programs including sports, dramas, news, comedy, talk shows, movies, kids’ shows and a lot more.

Other packages don’t offer a channel selection quite as robust as the Elite Super Pack but still offer a lot of great Arabic programming for viewers that may be a bit more budget-conscious. These packages include the Arabic Elite Pack and Arabic Enhanced Pack. Some channels are available as add-on channels for subscribers that already have a qualifying international programming package, such as Arabic Music, Arabic Iqraa, Arabic Noursat, and Arabic Aghapy TV.

Some of the more popular channels that are available in Arabic include Art America, which offers North American viewers a wide variety of mostly entertainment-focused programming.
