Rotana Masriya (Arabic: روتانا مصرية‎) is a free-to-air satellite TV general entertainment unencrypted channel that is owned by Rotana Group network. It was launched on 21 May 2011, after the Egyptian uprising in January 2011. The channel won the award of The Best Youth Show in the whole Arabic speaking world in the second year of Cairo's Radio and TV Mondial.[1][2] The channel got a wide international coverage after featuring a birthday party which appeared like a marriage of two men in Egypt,[3] where same-sex relationships are not technically illegal, but are nevertheless punishable in practice.[4]
