To watch new unreleased international films for $10 each, users may visit beIN On Demand and choose the Cinema category.
BeIN has announced a partnership with film distributors to show the latest films straight to subscribers before they are seen on cinema screens across the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region.
With cinemas closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the collaboration has been launched to deliver new films to MENA audiences.
The new digital service offers films for the price of one cinema ticket ($10) and aims to support film distributors, who can now make their films available during this challenging period. More than 20 new movies will be released and available on beIN ON DEMAND under the CINEMA category in April and May.
First up this month are some of the international films of 2020 that have never been released, including The Song of Names, starring Catherine McCormack, Tim Roth & Clive Owen. The film follows an Englishman who travels throughout Europe to find his lost childhood friend.
Into the Labyrinth, starring Dustin Hoffman, follows a kidnapped girl who resurfaces after being imprisoned by her captor.
Also in the lineup is Hope Gap starring Bill Nighy and Annette Bening. A couple’s visit with their son takes a dramatic turn when the father tells him he plans on leaving his mother.
This launch follows a range of major announcements from beIN just a few weeks ago with entertainment upgrades and additional services to current and new subscribers.
Speaking about the new On Demand service, Yousef Al-Obaidly, CEO of beIN Media Group said: “At this incredibly difficult time, we know that people and families across MENA are looking for inspiration, light relief, and something positive to entertain them whilst they are being asked to stay indoors. beIN is proud to play its part during this crisis, and we’re thrilled to launch this new service with film distributors so that, together, we can provide the latest movies straight to subscribers whilst cinemas are closed.”
