February 1, 2016

A+E Networks has strengthened its position in the Middle East launching H2 HD with OSN, a leading pay-TV network in the MENA region. H2, an extension of the History brand, brings an original line up of series and specials that take a deep perspective on history from all around the globe. Viewers in the Middle East can also enjoy a more tailored schedule for History, A+E Networks’ flagship channel, with the launch of a local feed across the territory.

Emad Marcos, Senior Vice President, Media Partners & Digital at OSN, said: “The addition of H2 HD on OSN highlights our network’s appeal as the first choice for the world’s leading content providers. A remarkable channel that brings deep perspectives on history, H2 will be a significant value addition for our subscribers. The channel, with programming subtitled in Arabic and presented in glorious HD, is part of the aggressive expansion plans of OSN, with five other new channels being launched to provide our subscribers with an unparalleled portfolio of exclusive content, available both on linear TV and our digital platforms.”
