'Al Aan' (Arabic: قناة الآن‎‎) is a pan-Arab infotainment satellite television station based in Dubai Media City, United Arab Emirates.

History and profile[edit]

The channel focuses on news content and entertainment programs and targets Arab families with a slight tilt towards young female audience in the Arab world.[1]

Al Aan is free-to-air at Arabsat and Nilesat[2] or via SFR and Free in France.[3]

The channel came into spotlight when it aired a rare video of a woman being stoned to death by Taliban in Orakzai Agency Pakistan.[4][5]

Al Aan TV was the only TV station in the world to film and report[6] the funeral of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi after his death in 2011 Libyan civil war.[7][8]

Famous TV personality Maysaa Maghrabi (ميساء مغربي) has been linked to Al Aan TV for a reality show Maysaa Bela Hdood, which sheds light on violence and crime against Arab women.[9]
