Is Shahid set to be the Arabic version of Netflix? They started to create their original content and we are super excited for what they have in store! Shahid’s platform is so hot right now because it’s easy to use and offers regular updates with many new shows.
1. Shahid vs. Netflix
Shahid has really embraced Netflix’s look and outline. Their shows are listed according to genre or country of origin. You can also watch shows live from specific channels like MBC, Fox or Disney.
2. Original Content
Shahid is producing their own original series and movies, which means that shows don’t have to be 30 episodes long and boring. It also means that you can expect some gruesome and 18+ scenes because content created online don’t have to be approved by the media censorship board.
Some of Shahid’s originals so far include: Mamlaket Eblees starring Ahmed Dawood, Fi Kol Esboo Yom Gomaa starring Menna Shalaby, Ahd El Dam starring Bassel Khayat, Nemra Etneen starring Nelly Karim, El Ameer El Ahmar starring Taim Hasan, El Diva starring Cyrine Abdelnour, and Rahala starring Marwan Younis.
