MBC Persia is a free-to-air MBC Group channel that originally broadcast Hollywood films 24/7, but circa late 2009 it began featuring a variety of television series alongside the films. The channel's current, regular schedule is similar to its former sister channel Channel 2, but unlike Channel 2 the programmes featured on MBC Persia are subtitled in Persian instead of Arabic, as MBC Persia is generally aimed at its MBC/film audience in Iran, as well as the Iranian population in the UAE. The channel even featured advertisements are also of Iranian origin. It debuted its broadcasting on July 9, 2008 at 11:30 GMT. On August 25, MBC Persia HD has been encrypted on MY HD Platform, and later on it has changed its name to MBC+ Variety. and subtitled its programs into Arabic.
