While in the UAE for their tour, WWE and OSN, the leading pay-TV network in the Middle East and North Africa announced a five-year partnership to distribute WWE Network as a premium, linear channel in time for WrestleMania on Sunday, March 29, exclusively on OSN.
The agreement will run concurrent with WWE and OSN’s existing partnership to air Raw and SmackDown, as well as NXT, and Superstars.
OSN subscribers will be able to access the premium linear network via their set top boxes, and anytime, anywhere on multiple devices via OSN Play and through authenticated access via WWE Network apps. WWE Network will also be offered in the region on a direct-to-consumer basis through the WWE app, available on GO by OSN.
“OSN has a long standing relationship with WWE and we are very excited to be expanding that relationship further with the exclusive carriage of the WWE Network,” said Andy Warkman OSN’s VP, Sport and Production “We will be co-branding the linear channel OSN WWE Network HD and following on from our enhanced TV deal renewal last year, this is great news for WWE fans in the Middle East & North Africa region. We are looking forward to launching the Network in the coming weeks and cementing our position as the Home of WWE in the region.”
