Icflix has enabled direct operator billing to customers across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia via Saudi Telecom Company (STC), the largest telecoms operator in the Gulf.

The direct operator billing will allow both prepaid and post-paid users the ability to subscribe and access Icflix’s library of content for a monthly fee of SAR 20 or a weekly plan of only SAR 8, depending on the user’s preference.

STC customers will be able to enjoy original Icflix productions, from Arabia’s first teen female superhero animated series, Dunia, to the latest popular Jazwood TV series Teatro Masr and hit movies including Soua’ Tafahom and Vitaminalongside Award-winning Hollywood movies such as Last Days on Mars, Grace of Monaco and The Rover.

Direct operator billing is a simple and secure mobile payment option that allows subscribers the ability to charge digital products and services to their monthly phone bill or deduct it from their prepaid cards.
