UAE telco Du has signed a partnership agreement with OSN to provide its customers with an exclusive subscription to OSN’s online and mobile app entertainment platform, ‘Wavo’, for free until December 31.
Under the extended partnership Du is the exclusive third-party distributor for Wavo in the UAE. Available on mobile devices and tablets (iOS/Android), as well as Samsung, LG smart TVs or PCs, Wavo differentiates itself by combining a blend of live and catch-up TV including English and Arabic programmes, hit TV series, blockbuster movies and live and exclusive sporting events.
Wavo also capitalises on some of OSN’s top exclusive partnerships with leading studios like HBO and Disney, giving subscribers in the region unprecedented access to top shows including Emmy Award winning hits, Westworld and Big Little Lies; as well as Disney family favourites.
“We are pleased to announce our latest partnership with OSN during GITEX 2017, and offer our customers the latest in streaming entertainment services through Wavo. Digitalisation is paving the way for the future of TV, and as an adaptive and agile ICT provider, we strive to add value through innovation for all our customers,” said Osman Sultan, CEO, Du. “Our latest partnership with OSN enables us to further bolster our offering, not just for our TV customers, but for customers who rely on multiple screens for their entertainment needs.”
Martin Stewart, CEO of OSN, said: “Building on OSN’s mantra of ‘anywhere, anytime’ entertainment, we’re giving more customers across the region the chance to enjoy all that WAVO has to offer, with something for everyone across an incredible spectrum of genres. This is a fantastic way to further our longstanding partnership with du, by strengthening our bond with this additional exclusive agreement.”
Under the GITEX 2017 umbrella of ‘Discover, Transform, Innovate’, Du is going beyond connectivity to move away from showing concepts of where the world is expected to be, to open a new chapter of digital transformation.
