OSN has launched Wavo, an online and mobile app entertainment platform, which is now available to download from the App Store and Google Play. 

Wavo includes a broad range of live and catch up TV, Hollywood blockbusters, hit series and a diverse range of Western and Arabic content.

Wavo features four distinct packages with no annual contracts. The new service underpins OSN’s strategy to offer ‘entertainment anywhere for everyone’.

As consumers grow increasingly mobile-savvy, online and app platforms continue to gain traction in the market with revenues in the region set to more than quadruple by 2022, according to OSN.

Martin Stewart, CEO, OSN said: “Wavo is the next phase of newOSN – entertainment everywhere for everyone at a price to suit every pocket. OSN has the best entertainment in the region by far and we’re making more of it available to more people through their devices.

“We have lots of happy customers but we know viewing habits are changing, particularly among the young, and we know that everyone, no matter how much they have to spend, wants convenient, quick access to great entertainment – Wavo helps OSN to deliver on that.”

Wavo offers an exciting combination of both live and catch-up TV with English and Arabic programming covering hit TV series, movies and live and exclusive sporting events.

Customers can ‘stay entertained’ by signing up for Wavo Entertainment (US$9.99 per month), Wavo Movies (US$6.99 per month), Wavo Sports (US$4.99 per day; US$7.99 per week; US$13.99 per month), or can opt for the WWE Network App (US$9.99 per month).
