This agreement grants THEMA the right to distribute the entire Rotana channels portfolio in Europe (10 branded premium channels such as Rotana Cinema, Rotana Drama, Rotana Classic…), and an unlimited access to the Rotana content library.

Following its rebranding in 2019, Le Bouquet Maghreb has emerged as the leading distributor of Arabic TV channels and content in Europe.

"We are delighted to expand our offering and be closer to our viewers in Europe, this is all made possible as a result of years of association with a solid partner like THEMA” said Jad Joubran, Rotana VP Business Development & Partnership.
