Intifada boosts satellite market in Jordan

Published November 5th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

The satellite market in Jordan has been reaping the fruits of the current Palestinian uprising against the Israeli forces. According to Al-Zamman newspaper, the sales of satellite receivers for television in Jordan have increased remarkably over the past three weeks. Apparently, the domestic demand for these devices has increased by over seven times.  


Market sources have reported that the reason for this extraordinary rise in satellite use is a result of the fact that many of the local inhabitants wish to be updated and aware of the ongoing events in the Palestinian territories. Moreover, they are interested in hearing the reactions of the Arab World and the international community in regard to these events. — (Albawaba-MEBG)
