Pan-Arabic children's channel, Space Toon, will now be part of the Orbit Satellite Television and Radio Network. The partnership is intended to provide young Orbit bouquet viewers with a full spectrum of children's Arabic programmes including animation, movies, educational programmes, documentaries, adventure shows, sports and comedy. Commenting on the partnership, Space Toon CEO, Fayez Sabbagh said: 'This partnership between Space Toon and Orbit is advantageous to both the companies as well as our viewers. Our programmes are sensitive to the region's cultural values making them perfectly suitable and beneficial for the children of today. We look forward to a long and successful alliance with Orbit.” Although all viewers can gain access to over 400 free to air channels, Orbit claims that its advanced decoders enable guardians to control the programmes their children can and cannot watch. “Launching Space Toon into our mega and kids packages is yet another value added service that Orbit has provided this year,” commented Ali Ajouz, VP marketing and public relations, Orbit Satellite Television and Radio Network. “As part of the Orbit platform, Space Toon will now be able to reach a much larger customer base offering them viewership of one of the world's largest library of children's programmes in Arabic,” he added. Space Toon TV will also be launching Space Toon English. This channel will initially air for eight hours every day and will be available on NileSat and Arabsat. Space Toon English will also be added to the Orbit children's bouquet later this year. “This addition will make Orbit's kids package unrivalled, with four dedicated kids channels as well as two documentary, one sports and 20 radio channels,” added Ajouz.
