I may not agree with the politics of the Al-Watan newspaper, nontheless, I have to admit that their new satellite station Al-Watan TV is one slick, efficient piece of programming with variety of shows covering various demographics. The promos and other related material between shows are also professional, well edited and scored – apparently they have a top notch team working behind the scenes as well.
An entertaining satirical show – which gives UAE’s Al-Fareej a run for its money – is Bu Qatada And Bu Nabeel, a CGI comedy revolving around a Westernised Kuwaiti, a Bedouin and an Islamist. Kudos to any show that manages to both simultaneously highlight our differences and celebrate them, not to mention offer talented, creative Kuwaitis an opportunity to create such programs.
If I were Al-Rai TV I’d be very nervous now.
As far as KTV is concerned they have become irrelevant with a huge drop in advertising revenue this year due to competition.
