The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) has launched its second 24/7 movie network that airs Iranian and foreign films and TV series for viewers in Iran and the Middle East.
The digital channel, named IRIB Namayesh, was launched during a ceremony attended by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, IRIB director Ezzatollah Zarghami and a number of other Iranian officials on Wednesday.
