JeemTV (Arabic: تلفزيون جيم) often abbreviated to (ج), formerly the Al Jazeera Children's Channel (JCC) (Arabic: قناة الجزيرة للأطفال), is a pan-Arab channel, for children between 7 and 12 years old. It is owned by the Al Jazeera Media Network.

History

The story starts with JCC, the free to air children’s channel that was founded in September 2005.

On 29 March 2013, JCC was rebranded as JeemTV.[2][3][4] The word "Jeem" is a reference to the letter ج in the Arabic alphabet. It is depicted in the logo.

On April 1, 2016, Jeem TV and Baraem on Arabsat and Nilesat have both been encrypted in favour of HD feeds available exclusively via the beIN Channels Network service. However, the pan-European feeds of both channels via Hot Bird remains free-to-air in SD-only format.

Programming

Content featuring children includes:

The channel also broadcasts nature documentaries and cartoon and animation programmes.

The content is mostly third-party foreign shows, though the channel does produce some material itself. The bought-in material is selected from the international market. Foreign-language material is translated into Arabic, either by voice-over, dubbing or by subtitles.

The channel produces its own cartoon TV series and other animations, and also participates in co-productions with other public service children’s channels around the world.

JeemTV's Channel is free to view on Badr, Arabsat, Nilesat, Hotbird and Eurobird and is also distributed by a number of other operators across Europe.

Jeem TV developed its multimedia programme for learning and creativity with an interactive website. The website is bilingual in Arabic and English and provides more than 200 hours of educational and entertainment material. Members can also upload their images and videos and share them with other children around the world.

Programming for the pre-school sector, aged 3 to 6 years old, is presented under the title Baraem.
