Morocco Television and Local Entertainment

Most people enjoy a bit of light evening entertainment and Television is often the easiest and most convenient way to see to that need. During your time in Morocco you will find that there are quite a few different TV stations and channels that you can investigate and enjoy at your leisure.

While you’re not likely to find a Television set in every household in this age old country, the country does have a very good television network. The main television network in Morocco is Radiodiffusion Television Marocaine, which is state operated and functions on a national level. The network is responsible for broadcasting a wide variety of programs and shows in languages such as Arabic, French, Berber, Spanish and English, which means that if your hotel room comes equipped with a TV you will be quite likely to find a program that you understand. However the vast majority of shows on the two local TV channels are broadcast in Arabic and French.

The majority of hotels offering Morocco TV services also receive satellite TV stations, which means you will have access to quite a number of channels from other countries. If you are staying in Tangier, you may be able to pick up some TV stations from Gibraltar and these are usually in English. So if you are planning to stay in Morocco, you might very well be able to enjoy a number of Television programs. However, if you simply wish to find out the latest news each day, we suggest you consult the Newspapers or Radio as a cheaper alternative.

every moroccan channel has an aim behind all the programes they broadcast(ideologies), so everybody should be aware of that sensless target.

our tv channels do not response to people's contrast to the other arab channels,our tv channels lack been realistic.exept for two political programmes,one in aloula and other in 2eme tv, the rest are trivial.films and soap opera are shown at least three times a day.if one watches our tv channels,certainly would think that all the morccan interest is that what moroccan people lack?.honestly,our tv channels need changes in terms of most of the programmes, and give much care to the informative programmes and abolish the trivial ones. i hope so....
