MBC 4 is the first free-to-air channel in the Middle East aired specifically for American programs. The downside of this all is that MBC 2, MBC 3, MBC 4, MBC Action, and MBC Max all show year old movies and TV programs; most of them are re-runs and they all are edited: taking out all drug use, sexual content, and to cut it down to its time frame. It is one of the many spun-off channels from the Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC). Before this channel was launched, all its shows were formerly on Channel 2. However, a few years after launching Channel 2, now known as MBC 2, all programs except for the movies were separated into MBC 4, so that MBC 2 is now solely a 24-hour film channel. In spite of this separation, MBC 4 did later broadcast its own selection of films, although only two films weekly at most, and the films are usually of the romantic genre. MBC 4 is now broadcasting the popular American television series Days of our Lives, Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives . Unlike its sister channel MBC Action, MBC 4 is aimed mostly at female audiences, although many shows on MBC 4 are relatively ambiguous anyway. It is owned by the Saudi Arabian businessman Waleed Al Ibrahim.
