        In the Middle East, programs that broadcast on international satellite have more freedom to pursue a broader range of topics than those broadcast on terrestrial state television. This greatly benefits some stations which have found that addressing thought-provoking issues earns their programs higher ratings.

The segment also includes a discussion of the channel’s plans to extend Kalam Nawaem to new platforms.
