The television network in the Middle East, MBC has launched an app on the Windows Phone platform. Already available on the Apple iPad, it's noted the network does not currently have solutions loaded on iPhone or Android. Nokia has seemingly struck a deal to have the app launched on Windows Phones. Good news if you reside in the region and rock a smartphone running Microsoft's OS.
MBC viewers can browse favourite TV shows with the Shahid app (www.shahid.net), the leading TV catch-up service in the MENA region. Free and exclusive content from all MBC channels are included, as well as Al Hayat, Dream TV, and more.
Vithesh Reddy, General Manager, Nokia Lower Gulf had the following to say on the announcement:
"The introduction of the first-ever Shahid.net app for smartphones through the Nokia Lumia with Windows 8 platform meets a growing demand in this region. Internet and smartphone penetration is rapidly increasing in the Middle East, as is the popularity of Arabic television, whether that is locally-produced or foreign dubbed shows. As a result, there is significant need for mobile Arabic TV such as the Shahid.net app that provide this content in an easy and accessible format on a smartphone."
With the Shahid app, you'll be able to take full advantage of viewing previous episodes of shows, not being tied to broadcasting guides and times, and being able to access supported shows from all over the world. You can download Shahid from the Windows Phone Store (available for Windows Phone 8 devices only).
