Roya TV topped the list of the most watched channels during the fasting month of Ramadan, according to the results of a survey conducted by Nielsen Marketing Research.

Roya received 34.3 per cent of the Jordanian public's viewership, surpassing the 33.6 per cent average viewership of MBC 1, broadcast from Dubai Media City, and the 16 per cent average viewership for Jordanian TV, according to the survey.
