Disney+ Originals will be available on the OSN streaming service, Wavo, which has relaunched in the MENA region. However, there are no imminent plans to launch the Disney+ standalone platform in the region.
The full catalogue of shows will be rolling out from April 9th.
“Given that we currently do not plan to launch Disney+ as a standalone service in the region in the near future, we are pleased to work with OSN to bring Disney+ Originals to viewers in the Middle East. This unique distribution strategy, designed specifically for this region, will provide fans and families the opportunity to enjoy world-class original content and amazing storytelling from our extensive portfolio of brands right now in these difficult times.”
Said Amit Malhotra, Regional Lead, Content Sales and Distribution, The Walt Disney Company and OSN CEO Patrick Tillieux added: “We’re delighted to strengthen our alliance with Disney to bring the magic of Disney’s storytelling to our loyal customers. Adding Disney+ Originals to our boxes and streaming services is a huge milestone for us and reinforces our commitment to offering premium content to our regional audience from only the most exceptional brands. By making the OSN streaming service available across all our platforms — TV, mobile, laptops, tablets, games consoles, and streaming boxes — the whole family can enjoy uninterrupted world-class entertainment unrivalled by any other platform.”
