ABOUT US

Introduction

Founded in 2012, United Mix Media (UMM) is the largest legal broadcasting platform in Kurdistan operating under the Laws and Regulations of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
UMM is the largest TV broadcasting service platform in Iraq, currently operating in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, with ambitions to expand to the rest of the country.
We are the first operator to invest in building the infrastructure for digital TV services in the nation. UMM is also the first operator to invest in the organization of local Kurdish and foreign TV channels in a unified DVB-T/T2 system.
UMM is currently transitioning its system to DVBT2 code, where one single broadcasting system will be airing all the contents watched on the digital terrestrial network in the Kurdistan Region. This is all being done through UMM’s 25 and counting stations based in the Kurdistan Region, from Zakho to Kalar District.

History

Prior to the official foundation of the company, we first introduced the DVBT concept to KRG public and the officials in 2009. Due to limited capital, and then KRG’s financial difficulties, UMM showed a relative slow growth until mid-2015, when a new partner ensured strong and continuous growth.
The new partnership became a turning point in UMM’s history, as it paved the way for a wide range investment and system expansion to the entire Kurdistan Region. Since then, UMM has successfully covered more than 70% of the region and initiated the development expansion plan for Kirkuk.
UMM’s inauguration was through Free-to-Air (FTA) broadcasting in 2012. As of today, UMM has added DVBT2 coverage in Zakho, Duhok, Erbil Governorate (except city center), Sulaimanyah Governorate (except city center), Kirkuk and Kalar District in the far south east of the country.
