Dubai-based pay-TV firm OSN has extended its exclusive output agreement with Warner Bros International Television Distribution.

The long-term agreement between the pay-TV and video-on-demand provider and the Hollywood movie studio has been extended until 2020.

As a result, OSN subscribers will have continued first and exclusive access to Warner Bros' blockbuster movies in the shortest possible span after their theatrical release as well as its top TV series, OSN said in a statement.

It added that it aims to offer some key shows, at the "same minute" as they premiere in the US.

"Long-term deals with the world’s leading entities in the entertainment sector such as Warner Bros, enables OSN to stay ahead of the market with exclusive content. This is a significant strength that we bring to the industry, which is unbeatable.”

Jeffrey Schlesinger, president, Warner Bros Worldwide Television Distribution added: “OSN has quickly become as the top-rated and fastest growing pay-TV network in the MENA region, one of the key markets for Warner Bros. Through this deal, we will deliver our premium content spanning hit movies, popular TV series to OSN’s subscribers exclusively.”
