OSN marks 43% growth, opens new office in Jeddah

OSN has underlined its credentials as Saudi Arabia’s fastest growing pay-TV network recording an impressive 43 percent year on year growth in subscribers.
Highlighting the increasing demand for premium and exclusive content and the latest television technology, OSN’s growth is also led by the network’s strong presence in the Kingdom.
OSN has invested in expanding its retail network across the Kingdom with 34 new locations added last year taking OSN’s total retail footprint to 74 touch points serving residents in remote areas as well. OSN also recently opened a new office in Jeddah, taking the total number of corporate offices in the Kingdom to six.
Bandar Al-Sunbuly, GM for OSN’s Saudi business, said: “We are focused on aggressively expanding our presence through new retail touch points, bringing us closer to our customers and provide an enriched experience."
He added: “Saudi Arabia is one of the fastest growing and most important markets, with a large segment of discerning television viewers, who demand high quality entertainment across multiple platforms. We recorded a healthy 43 percent growth in our subscriber base, and investing in establishing a new office in Jeddah reflects our continued commitment to provide Saudi residents world-class premium entertainment with the highest standards of service.”
With over 400 employees already recruited, and a further 100 in progress, OSN’s new office in Jeddah and continued investment in retail expansion will create additional job opportunities for skilled Saudi youth in a number of job functions, including direct sales and customer operations.
OSN’s commitment to the Kingdom goes beyond sales and revenue. The network has also been actively investing in talent and content production in Saudi Arabia to create relevant and meaningful programming for the region. OSN’s latest production includes Saudi Doctors. Season 1 is currently on-air and the show will return with a new season post Ramadan.
