OSN launches new binge-watching channel
OSN subscribers – or indeed, prospective – listen up. From Monday April 1, the region’s dominant TV network is launching a brand-new channel dedicated entirely to the art of binge-watching.
(What? It’s TOTALLY an art.)
From the start of next month, viewers will get OSN Binge on their box, with series heavyweight Game of Thrones kicking off the launch. Seasons 1 through to 7 will be shown on the channel, with five episodes aired back-to-back every night from 11pm UAE time, until the new season lands on Monday April 15.
But if dragons and ice zombies aren’t your jam, fret not. Kerry Washington and her white hats are set to appear with Scandal (Season 7) also programmed, plus The Good Doctor (Season 2), Succession (Season 1), Lethal Weapon (Seasons 2 and 3) and Westworld (Seasons 1 and 2). Set your box to series link and record shows to watch all in one go.
Emad Morcos, Chief Content Officer, OSN said: “Over the past few months we’ve been listening to our customer’s suggestions and feedback, and two key things that were strikingly clear was that our customers want a simpler more focused channel offering and an easier way to find more of the content they love and that’s how the OSN Binge Channel was born. We’re also putting even more content on OSN Play and OSN On Demand than ever, making sure that series-lovers across the region can always watch anytime, anywhere and on any device.”
The arrival of OSN Binge is part of OSN’s channel refresh, which aims to improve the brand’s programming based on customer feedback, which includes promising fewer repeats (HURRAH!) and, erm, new channel names (nope, us neither).
We’re ready to make like a couch potato and vegetate the stuffing out of that sofa.
