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.

Many reasons to visit Four Seasons Hotel Cairo

As the sun gets brighter and the nights get longer, summer in Cairo is a great opportunity to wake up everyday to marvel at views of the legendary Nile and the Cairo skyline. Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza can be a good starting point to experience what Cairo has to offer this summer.

From centuries-old museums and galleries to music festivals and concerts, the concierge team of Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza shares their favorite things to do this summer in the city:

Attend the citadel music festival

• Salah El-Din Citadel dominates Cairo’s skyline and was the nerve center of Egypt for almost 700 years. In August, the citadel will turn into an arts and culture center during its annual two-week music festival. Organized by Cairo Opera House, the festival hosts various art performances by local and international artists against the backdrop of the 12th-century citadel.

Soak up the sun with a cooling dip

• One of the best things about Cairo is the long morning hours. Take advantage and escape the heat in one of three rooftop swimming pools at Four Seasons Cairo at Nile Plaza. Lounge with a refreshing drink in hand and let the cooling breeze that follows blow away any thoughts you might have. 

Travel back in time with Cairo’s palaces

• When summer weather strikes, take your activities indoors and consider yourself royalty while exploring Cairo’s lavish palaces. From the masterpieces at Princess Aisha Fahmy Palace and the Manial Palace that tell the story of botanical eloquence and architectural grandeur, to Amir Taz Palace, Abdeen Palace and many more that tell stories of Cairo’s modern history.

Embrace the warm weather at the spa

• A hot summer day in Cairo is just the perfect time to set the mood for well-being at Four Seasons Spa. The spa offers treatments designed to prep and prime you to soak up that warm summer sun while reviving some of the pharaoh’s beauty secrets.

Spend an afternoon with the pharaohs

• Home to the world’s most extensive collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities, the 107-hall Egyptian Museum features an incredible 160,000 objects on display with artifacts spanning 5,000 years of the pharaonic era. To beat the summer heat, the museum opens late afternoon every Sunday and Thursday.

Get lost in Cairo’s 1000-year-old market 

• Few places in Cairo can match the energy of Khan El-Khalili market, especially in the evenings when the entire area is lit up with colorful lanterns. The hotel’s chief concierge Dalia Khalil recommends experiencing the essence of old Cairo and visiting the 240-year-old El-Feshawy café.

Cheer at the Africa Cup of Nations 2019

• Be part of the continent’s biggest football competition, as Egypt is hosting the 32nd Africa Cup of Nations from June 21 to July 19. The concierge team at Four Seasons Cairo at Nile Plaza can help with booking tickets and information.
