The raft of new releases from the Egyptian streaming service includes 13 premium drama series.
In an attempt to encourage everyone to stay home, Egypt’s digital streaming platform Watch iT has announced top series and entertainment shows which will be joining the service during Ramadan.
Earlier this month, the service offered its users free subscription as part of its initiative #StayHome. Since then, the application witnessed a rise of one million new subscribers with more than 30% daily active users.
Watch iT has acquired top 13 premium series of Ramadan’20 drama and TV shows to stream on its platform. The long list of series contains Ramadan drama mega star Amir Karara with his most anticipated series El Ekhtyar, and the first Egyptian Sci-Fi drama The End for the superstar Yoused El Sherif.
The service also includes Egyptian star Mohamed Ramadan, and his series El Prince along with Youssra and her new drama Kheyanet Aahd. The duo Ahmed Fahmy and Akram Hosny has joined the service with their anticipated comedy series Regalet El Beet.
WATCH iT will also launch its first TV original prank show Bara’et Ekhtera’a Korshid on its platform. The show is considered one of the very first to mix between innovative technology and comedy in a premier concept.
Moustapha Bakheet, VP and Managing Director of Watch iT!, said: “Watch iT looks forward to offering an unrivalled streaming experience of Ramadan drama, ensuring that we keep everyone entertained and safe at home. We realise the importance of our role towards the society more than ever because entertainment is a strong tool that can get us through these times and overcome boredom while we are practising social distancing. Furthermore, technology and the digital are key elements to getting through this exceptional situation, where we transform our content and entertainment shows into accessible digital content for everyone and everywhere. It is our message to the world to stay safe and entertained at home.”
