Shahid, the world's leading Arabic streaming platform by MBC GROUP, has been named 2024's 'Best Digital Platform in Media' at the third edition of the Saudi Media Forum.

Part of the forum's Digital Media category, the Best Digital Platform in Media award is open to both websites and mobile applications that excel in delivering content across a diverse spectrum of media.

Shahid is the premier destination for top-tier original productions from the Arab world, offering an expansive library of exclusive movies, premieres, live TV channels, sports, children’' content, and international offerings. Shahid streams a rich mix of free content through its Video on Demand (VoD) service and an enhanced viewing experience with exclusive content available via Subscription Video on Demand (SVoD).

The platform's diverse programming includes Shahid Originals, Shahid Premieres, and the latest Arabic movies fresh off the box office. It also offers access to MBC GROUP’s live TV channels in true HD quality alongside more than 30 Free Ad-Supported Streaming TV (FAST) channels.

MBC GROUP is the leading and largest media organisation in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Under the patronage of the Minister of Media, Salman bin Yousef Al-Dosari, the third Saudi Media Forum took place last week: 'Media in a World Taking Shape'. Organised by the Saudi Broadcasting Authority (SBA) in collaboration with the Saudi Journalists Association, the Forum took place in Riyadh over three days, engaging more than 2,000 prominent media professionals, academics, experts, and specialists, both locally and internationally, as well as 80 media entities, according to the Saudi Press Agency.
