The agreement will also include new Warner Bros Network, Off-Network, and CW series, giving OSN+ and OSNtv subscribers access to titles including Rescue: Hi-surf and Emperor of Ocean Park, as well as a host of other titles from the studio’s library. 

Joe Kawkabani, Group CEO at OSN, commented: “Today we strengthen our longstanding partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery with yet another exclusive deal that will further expand OSN+ and OSNtv’s content libraries and bring the studio’s biggest global films and new Max Originals to our platforms first.”
