The MENA region is already witnessing competition in the SVOD segment. Users are spoilt with choice and it all leads up to content being the prime reason to court subscribers. Whether it’s exclusive licensed or originals, the new launch of OSN+ is sure to give you more reasons to subscribe to their service.
OSN+ is adrenaline pumped
While users would remember OSN with their fancy red logo, you can’t forget they were streaming Disney+ originals for more than a year. That licensing partnership came to an end, leading to the official Disney+ launch across the MENA region sometime in 2022.
Aside from the new look with a different colour scheme, the search systems have seen improvement. This should help make discoveries even better.
The service is still home to a plethora of international, local, and original content. This is courtesy of their exclusive partnerships with leading streaming services and studios like HBO, Peacock, Sky Studios, Endeavour Content, and All3Media.
Expect some of the best movies and TV series from major studios like Paramount, Warner Media, Sony, Discovery, MGM and Lionsgate. I’m not sure how the MGM licensing will continue, since Amazon just closed their acqusition on it.
The SVOD service is making major inroads with Arabic content, and we can expect more titles to be announced. The biggest headline is the local adaptation of the hit series Suits titled Suits Arabia, debuting just in time for Ramadan.
On another note, the much-anticipated Paramount+ original Halo (based on the popular Microsoft game) is already streaming on OSN+ as it coincided with the release on Paramount+.
Use it like nothing changed
Everything will be migrated to the new OSN+ app, whether using web browser or native apps. The app has already been updated for iOS and Android devices. This applies to regular paying subscribers or users accessing it as part of a bundle with their local telecom provider.
OSN+ costs USD 9.50 per month, and you can test it out with a 7-day trial as well.
