Earlier this morning, OSN unveiled its new streaming service available on OSN.com, OSN Mobile, and TV apps. Featuring a fresh new brand identity and the largest variety of entertainment content, OSN brings an unrivalled offer of premium quality content though its channels and streaming app.

The new brand identity is reflected in an elegant new logo underscoring the new dynamics of the company as well as consolidating the robustness of its brand since its inception in 2009. The previous WAVO streaming app will disappear and be replaced by a new OSN app. The app will gradually update periodically to add an array of new features to provide an easy user experience.

As the region’s leading entertainment business, OSN has secured unique and exclusive rights for both its traditional pay TV channels and its new digital streaming platform. The company renewed its content partnerships with the biggest studios in the world including Disney, HBO, Universal, Paramount, Viacom and MGM to achieve the quickest first-to-air rights for blockbuster movies and same-time-as-US broadcast of series, such as Westworld, Killing Eve and Grey’s Anatomy. In addition, OSN brings a wide variety of exclusively curated great Arabic content, documentaries with National Geographic and Discovery, music, comedy, and exclusively the Disney Channels and Nickelodeon channels.

Our commitment to our loyal subscribers across the region is to deliver the freshest entertainment and original premium content from across the world by partnering with the greatest content providers and makers. We are the only business in the region that provides our customers with both OTT and linear options; putting us in a unique position to scale our content across all platforms. Today marks a new chapter in our long-standing journey in the Middle East. By launching our app and providing our quality content on-demand anywhere anytime we fully respond to what the customers expect from a great entertainment platform.

OSN CEO – Patrick Tillieux

OSN’s enviable streaming library boasts thousands of hours of universally acclaimed movies and series featuring some of the world’s most binge-watched content such as Game of Thrones, Chernobyl, His Dark Materials, Watchmen, Ramy, Killing Eve and Silicon Valley. OSN’s content is especially curated for Arabic audiences and includes the hugely popular Pan-Arab Drama Ma Fiyyi and Turkish Rom-Com Alhob Warta.

OSN’s new streaming service will launch on April 2, 2020 with a monthly subscription of $9.50 USD, and new users can enjoy a 7-day free trial. OSN streaming is available on OSN.com, iOS and Android mobile apps, Apple TV, Android TV, Samsung and LG TVs.

Kickstarter

Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding platform may be laying off almost half of its workforce as the COVID-19 pandemic ravages its business. In a recent message to Gizmodo, the company has confirmed plans to reduce a good portion of its workforce after the OPEIU said it had ratified a layoff agreement on May 1, 2020. The union said layoffs could affect up to 45 percent of the workforce.

The terms could ensure a relatively soft landing for those who leave. The arrangement provides four months of severance pay as well as either four or six months of healthcare coverage, depending on the employee’s salary. They’ll be free to work for competitors like Indiegogo the moment they accept severance, and they’ll also have recall rights to return to Kickstarter if a job similar to theirs opens up within the next year.
