brock-wweWWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and OSN have confirmed that WWE’s flagship television programme Monday Night Raw will now air live on OSN, WWE’s exclusive pay-TV partner in the Middle East and North Africa through 2019.

Under this new agreement, fans can now enjoy all of WWE’s programming, including Raw, SmackDown, NXT and Main Event, as well as WWE pay-per-view events including WrestleMania and SummerSlam, in one place on OSN Sports 2 HD.

OSN subscribers can also watch all the action anytime, anywhere on their smartphone, tablet or laptop with OSN Play, the region’s first online viewing platform, where OSN Sports 2 HD is streamed live and via ‘OSN on Demand’.

“OSN and WWE have a long standing relationship and we are very excited to be taking that to the next level,” said Andy Warkman, OSN’s VP of Sport & Production. “For the first time in the region, all core WWE programming will be available in one place, making OSN the home of WWE, reaching an audience across more than 20 countries. This deal furthers our commitment to bringing our customers the best content.”
