City7 - it aint bad, and not it aint a local in Dish Dash. There is also Dubai TV, both aren't bad but lack the professionalism of programmes in the west. If you were considering them for advertising then personally I would say no.

City 7 has major financial issues. It is run on a shoestring and it shows.
