In line with its commitment to support the Saudi community by empowering digital education, Intigral, the leading OTT provider in the MENA region, has announced that it will continue to broadcast the national education portal’s channels (iEN channels) live on its Jawwy TV App throughout the coming school season.
The Ministry of Education has recently announced that the first seven weeks of the academic year 2020-2021, which will begin on Sunday August 30, 2020, will be conducted remotely under the “stay home stay safe” initiative as part of the government’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19. All iEN channels have been added to Jawwy TV’s offerings since the Ministry’s e-learning initiative was launched last March.
Jawwy TV will be the only platform to live stream the channels online concurrently with their free broadcast on Arabsat. Junior High and High school classes will be broadcasted from 7 AM while Elementary school classes will be broadcasted from 3 PM.
Intigral’s CEO Markus Golder said Intigral is looking forward to continue contributing to the educational goals outlined in the Saudi Vision 2030, namely in terms of encouraging the shift to digital education. “Our goal is to support the success of the e-learning programs by simplifying access to the national education platform channels for students and parents, aligning with the leadership’s futuristic vision for the education in Saudi.”
Mr. Golder lauded the Ministry of Education’s efforts to resume online learning for the first seven weeks which would enable students to pursue their education while reaffirming the government’s commitment to ensure the safety of the community. “Jawwy TV has been praised not only as a premium gateway for digital entertainment for the whole family but also as a supplier of educational content that has gained further recognition during the pandemic-prompted lockdown. Jawwy TV App will enhance the e-learning experience from home or on the go with its many features that add value to the service and provide a worthwhile experience for students and parents.”
Through Jawwy TV App students can access the e-learning channels with seamless streaming and high-quality viewing, anywhere and anytime via their phone or tablet. Students can also benefit from Jawwy TV’s multiple features which include the Start Over, Rewind and Catch Up options that allow students to revisit the courses at their convenience, offering them flexibility in managing their schedule. The platform also helps students and parents keep track of all 19 iEN channels, ensuring they would not miss any of the courses.
Additionally, families can still have access to Jawwy TV’s vast entertainment library and channel streaming through the multiple devices feature which allows sharing the same account on two different devices simultaneously. The platform’s parental control feature also helps parents ensure that their kids are spending their time studying and customize the content available to their children’s age group.
Users can obtain access to iEN channels in addition to Jawwy TV’s 200+ channels and its extensive library of over 23,000 titles by subscribing to Jawwy TV service through visiting www.jawwy.tv and downloading the Jawwy TV app or calling customer service at STC to order the home device.
