According to the agreement, Zain KSA customers will get access to a unique experience incorporating OSN's content offering with high-quality internet services from Zain KSA.
Zain KSA has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with OSN, through which its mobile and fibre (FTTH) customers will enjoy complimentary access to the OSN streaming application.
As per the agreement, Zain KSA’s 5G network and fibre subscribers will be able to access to the application for a year without any additional costs, while other subscribers will gain free access to the application for a duration of two months.
Through the OSN streaming app, Zain KSA customers will be able to watch latest Hollywood films, Western series, top Arabic and Original productions, children’s programmes, and exclusive content from global studios including Disney, MGM, HBO, Universal, and Viacom CBS.
Commenting on the deal, CEO at Zain KSA Eng. Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Degaither described the agreement as an enabler of Zain KSA’s efforts to offer an advanced telecommunications infrastructure paired with world-class technology services and digital educational and entertainment content that enrich the experiences of users from all ages and segments.
He said: “This exclusive partnership agreement will further support our strategic goals of enhancing the quality of life for Zain KSA’s customers, and will contribute towards the realization of the Saudi Vision 2030’s targets aiming to develop varied entertainment opportunities that cater to all tastes and preferences.”
Patrick Tillieux, CEO at OSN, remarked: “The partnership with Zain KSA is a big step for us in the deployment of our OSN streaming app. It comes at the right time of acceleration of the content offering of OSN. Traditionally we have been the preferred entertainment platform for unique movies and series from the greatest studios like Disney, NBCUniversal, HBO, MGM and Paramount, but we now go one step further by bringing the Disney+ Originals at the same time as the US with for example the Star Wars series Mandalorian in its second season.
“More importantly, our partnership with Zain KSA coincides with the launch of OSN Originals with amazing content like Yalla Net’asha. There was no better time for starting this partnership as both Zain KSA and OSN are building further on each other’s strengths to mutual benefit.”
