Background and Reception[edit]

The channel gained a positive following at the start. However, when the network adopted the dubbing policy in Arabic for the entire series, a number of growing Facebook pages emerged demanding the return of the former original language with subtitle approach, some even went through and called for a boycotting by faithful viewers until they are given the option to choose the language. The criticism came as the series displayed the lackluster accents that drained the series from their original voices that the fans were drawn to.

Since 2011 during the Maghrib prayer, shows advertisements locally for viewers outside and in Qatar that uses satellite services. For example, during the prayer, did not shown it; instead, shows many advertisements for viewers in some cities. However, in very rare instance, when is shown on analog or digital television by using SDTV in PAL and DVB-T format picture, the Maghrib prayer is shown. It also available for analog or digital television formatting in several cities.
