Snapchat promises new lineup of over 100 shows for Ramadan


For scores of people in the Middle East, the holy month of Ramadan ushers in a memorable period for enjoying local shows. While these would traditionally be viewed on TV through satellite channels, the rapid proliferation of the internet and social media has made people get their daily dose of entertainment through other devices.

According to the company’s regional arm, there was a noteworthy percent increase in Google searches for “series” in Saudi Arabia and Egypt last year.

This year during Ramadan, Snapchat – in partnership with fan favourite content creators and trusted media companies – is launching a new lineup of more than 100 new engaging shows on Discover and Spotlight, said Hussein Freijeh, general manager of Snap Inc. for the Middle East and North Africa region.
