DUBAI, UAE, February 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
ICFLIX [pronounced i-see-flix] has signed a deal with Fox International Channels that will further expand their library for subscribers in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The region's first subscription-based online streaming service is available to users within MENA for only $7.99 per month, which gives them a huge variety of content from Hollywood, Bollywood and Jazwood (Arabic language content); the service is also accessible worldwide for only Bollywood and Jazwood content.
National Geographic Channel programs will now be available to those accessing the service from their Internet-enabled devices in the MENA region, in English and Arabic, and will be updated monthly, as will National Geographic Farsi, to bring hit documentary programing to users on demand.
Popular TV series "The Walking Dead" and "The Listener" will also be added in full for TV fans who want to catch up on the shows before their next seasons both air towards the end of this year. The Golden Globe-nominated "The Walking Dead" captivates its audiences by telling the horror story of a post-apocalyptic world where man-eating zombies thrive. So many were captivated by its season four premiere that it became the most-watched drama series telecast in basic cable history. "The Listener" is a science-fiction drama about Toby Logan, a mind reading paramedic who teams up with law enforcement to make a change in the world.
ICFLIX will also be adding Fox's Baby TV in English and Arabic to their kids' content, in order to ensure entertainment for the entire family.
