Abu-Dhabi-based satellite broadcasting company Yahlive has signed a long-term agreement with the Republic of Tajikistan to broadcast six Tajikistan government-run channels across its East Beam covering the Middle East and South West Asia.

Yahlive already caters to a vast Tajik audience, with a viewership of 2 million through its existing bouquet of Farsi-language channels. This will now increase to a viewership of 6.5 million through a combination of viewers directly receiving Yahlive channels, or via terrestrial TV channels where the network uses a Yahlive feed exclusively.
