Ramadan Kareem Everyone! It’s that time of the year where I say I won’t make a list but I get bullied and badgered by friends and family asking for the list. I tried my best to get everything correct in regards to the timings but you know some networks fidget a little there. This year I honestly feel like I don’t want to watch anything maybe just “SAQ AL BAMBOO” but most definitely I’ll be watching on my own time.
All timings reflect Kuwait’s viewing time! (GMT +3)
Meaning I put everything and when it airs based on Kuwait and KSA time zone :P
So without further ado, here is the Ramadan TV 2016 list for both Arabic and Khaleeji Shows!
Ramadan Mubarak Everyone! I know I’m a little late in sending out the greetings and everything but I haven’t been feeling that well since I came back from NYC. I also have been a bit late when it comes to providing you all with the #RamadanTV2015List but I was still on the fence on whether I should make one this year or not. I haven’t found a decent show to watch and well it was a bit depressing but many of you sent me personal messages asking for it politely and I thought oh I can’t say no now!
So, this is the final list, there will be no amendments, if I had one or two messed up timings not my fault, its only because networks decide to air shows during the prayer timings and thus as the days pass by the timings change. I do hope you guys enjoy it. I have updated the design slightly (just because I want to :P) And you can find four smaller iPhone-Friendly Images (I don’t cater to Android :P).
All timings reflect Kuwait’s viewing time! (GMT +3)
[UPDATE: FINAL VERSION AVAILABLE NOW!]
Ramadan Kareem! It’s that time of the year when everyone stumbles across my humble little blog in order to see if I have posted this year’s Ramadan TV Schedule and although I had some doubts this year about whether I would prepare one or not, I was peer-pressured into creating one. As this is the night before Ramadan all timings are subject to change because each network likes to change its mind whenever so be on a look out for an updated version soon. My left hand is numb right now because of all the typing and my eyes are shot out hehe but then again the things I do for my amazing followers and readers!
You remember the drill this year? Two years ago many of you chose to steal this list and slap on your own watermark and call it your own, well I’d like to see you try again this year. The watermark is seriously all over the place and short of you being a magician and making it disappear I don’t think it’s possible. There are empty timing slots, and there are some shows with no timings at all on any network but that’s only because not all TV networks release their timings until the day of Ramadan. So for all intents and purposes this is a preliminary list until all timings are released and finalized.
And the final version of the list is now available, be sure to enjoy it and of course the whole point of this list is to know what’s airing where :P You don’t really have to watch everything on it. I added a few shows (as per some requests) and I have updated all the timings (if there are any mistakes in that regards bear in mind that some networks change the timings as the month goes along to accommodate the prayer timings and such [i.e. Al Rai & Al Watan mostly]) so take it with a grain of salt.
A Full version of the list is also available in PDF form, download it onto your phones, email it to your friends, and you will be able to access it at all timings and zoom in and out to see it. That’s my solution for the (iPhone-friendly) version or download the AlQabas (Jadwal Bo 6baila) App [which is incorrect at most times] and enjoy that option.
[Updated (12/7/2013): Removed First Draft & Replaced with Final Version & PDF Files]
After 24 hours of staring at multiple screens filled with numbers, timings in GMT, in GMT +2, in any other time zone really and translating them all to one timing which is GMT +3 I can finally say that the “Ramadan TV List 2013” is here and ready to be downloaded by you freaks out there. This year I started out a bit late but I kind of like how I went all simplistic in the design. I am working on making an (iPhone-Friendly) version but that’s not complete yet (might be making it available as a separate website perhaps but not so sure yet).
You remember the drill this year? Last year many of you chose to steal this list and slap on your own watermark and call it your own, well I’d like to see you try again this year. The watermark is seriously all over the place and short of you being a magician and making it disappear I don’t think it’s possible. There are empty timing slots, and there are some shows with no timings at all on any network but that’s only because not all TV networks release their timings until the day of Ramadan. So for all intents and purposes this is a preliminary list until Thursday when I will be releasing an updated version.
Without further ado, here are the lists. Please link back and source where you got them from because I didn’t spend all this time browsing the newspapers, twitter accounts, forums, network websites, etc just to have you take away the credit and hard work I provided.
So in the next 24 hours I will be finalizing (read: starting to write) the Ramadan 2013 TV List. I know I’m a bit late this year, hell I’ve been procrastinating writing these past two months but that was because I was too busy living life to write (read: being too lazy to move my tush and access my blog from my numerous devices). Hopefully this year I will avoid the “copy-cats” and “thieves” who steal my list, although I would love to give you a nice Excel version of it, so you could remove what you don’t want and so forth but I doubt it’s possible (read: people will still actually steal it and stick their logos on it).
Once I am done with this year’s list then I will tackle on the important topics of actually sharing my thoughts with the world. And of course finishing the pending work (I know I know I’m late with stuff but give me a break :P) since I am still unemployeed and now I should have all the time in the world unless I am turning into a potato in front of the TV.
Anyways, let me get off this thing and actually write the beast! Toodles! Stay tuned!
