Arab Radio and Television Network (acronym: ART) is an Arabic-language television network characterized by its multitude of channels. It is based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

History and profile

ART was founded in October 1993 by Saleh Abdullah Kamel, a Saudi businessman and is a private company specializing in family entertainment, including movies, music and sport.[1]

ART is common in Saudi Arabia for its exclusive sports event broadcasts, particularly the Saudi Leagues. ART lost a significant amount of its audience share after the launch of many similar free-to-air channels like Rotana Channels, which is owned by Al-Waleed bin Talal. ART produces over 6,000 live and recorded shows every year including family-oriented dramas, series, plays, sports programs, music videos and documentaries. The network has the largest Arabic movie library in the Middle East and (as part of the AMC conglomerate) has been associated with leading film production studios in the Arab world for well over 30 years.

ART is broadcasting via the Arabsat, Nilesat and Hot Bird satellites. Most ART Channels are encrypted using Irdeto 2 Encryption. ART's technical broadcast facilities are based in Jordan Media City in Amman, Jordan.
