MBC Masr is an Egyptian free-to-air commercial television channel. It is owned by the Dubai-based MBC Group and is affiliated with the Middle East Broadcasting Corporation network.

MBC MASR was launched during an official ceremony in Cairo on 16 October 2012, and began broadcasting on 9 November 2012. The channel serves Egyptian viewers. The channel also features several new Egyptian dramas such as Al Kabeer, Raqam Majhool, Keid Al Nesa and Ferqat Naji Atallah.

In 2014, MBC MASR announced an agreement with comedian Bassem Youssef that it would pick up his news satire show El Bernameg; Youssef had been looking for a new home for his program ever since Capital Broadcast Center dropped the show in November 2013.[3]
