The Shahid app was launched after a strong response to MBC's TV catch-up service, Shahid.net, proved highly popular, reaching 63 million visits and 90 million video views for the year to date. Shahid.net offers content from MBC channels as well as other Arabic TV content.

The new app will also allow users to watch Shahid on the television sets via Apple AirPlay.
