Cable and Satellite TV

In Tunisia, there are mostly stations watched that are broadcasted via the NILESAT satellite.

Although the TV stations in Tunisia are almost exclusively of arabic origin, a few of them show around the clock american shows and series in english language with arabic subtitles.

HOTBIRD can be received in Tunisia without any problems, but plays no significant role (mainly Italian and eastern European channels and Pay Per View).

The ASTRA satellites can be received in Tunisia in good quality with dishes of 120cm diameter from the north down to the Sfax region in the south.
Even more to the south (eg. Djerba, Zarzis, Sahara), there are bigger diameters needed and/or the receiving quality is poor.

With the latest ASTRA satellites, receiving conditions are improving, though.
For the Astra 1M digital satellite (since early 2009), for example, there is a 60cm dish diameter sufficient in the whole of Tunisia.

So-called "cable" networks and cable providers, generally Cable TV, are widely unknown in Tunisia, except for hotels, in which usually a very limited selection of non-arabic channels (5-10) can be found that are distributed via the internal hotel cable system.


DVB-T in Tunisia

DVB-T for terrestric television has replaced the old analogue signals in most regions of Tunisia. In this regard, it is now also possible to watch mobile TV on a portable device in the same way as in many European countries who have adopted DVB-T as well.


Other Stations

Amongst the most watched programs in Tunisia are the ones of the non-tunisian company MBC (eg. via NILESAT - satellite):

Programm of MBC 2
Programm of MBC 4
Programm of MBC Action

Other spellings: Hanabal, Hannabal, Hannaball, Hanaball, Hannabaal, Nesma, Haniball, Hanniball, Nesma, Tounes, Tunes
