Dubai, UAE; February 26, 2018: OSN, the region’s leading entertainment network, has teamed up with Disney to create a new home for everyone’s favorite Disney movies – including animation, live action, the classics and new family-favorites – with the upcoming launch of new channel OSN Movies Disney HD.
The brand-new channel, available exclusively on OSN from March 1, 2018, is the first co-branded Disney channel in the Middle East and North Africa, and only the fourth globally.
OSN Movies Disney HD will be available in both English and Arabic and promises movie releases at least one year before premiering anywhere else in the region. Plus, families can watch at their convenience anytime, anywhere and on any screen with OSN Play and OSN On Demand.
The one-stop-destination to all Disney movies, OSN Movies Disney HD will offer nostalgic collections of some of the world’s timeless classics including Aladdin, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast, alongside modern-day favorites such as the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Moana, Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story and Cars, and many more. Also, fans can look out for Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3 which will be premiering on the channel exclusively.
OSN is currently the sole provider of the channels Disney XD, Disney Junior and Disney Channel HD, in addition to offering three exclusive digital services – Disney Channel Pop Pick Play, Disney English and Disney Channel Hindi. OSN Customers also enjoy access to box sets of top series with ABC Studios on Demand and classic movies on Disney on Demand.
Further engaging its Arab viewers, Disney XD will introduce Arabic-dubbed content later this year joining Disney Junior and Disney Channel HD, which are already available with Arabic dubbing or subtitles.
