OSN launches TV streaming service WAVO

Entertainment network OSN has announced its new online and mobile app entertainment platform “WAVO,” which is now available to download from the App Store and Google Play.
“WAVO builds on the pioneering model of ‘anytime, anywhere’ entertainment with a full spectrum of can’t-miss live and catch up TV, Hollywood blockbusters, hit series and a diverse range of Western and Arabic content,” a press release said.
WAVO has four packages with great value and flexible pricing and no annual contracts. Customers can come and go as they please for access to watch when and how they want.
“The launch of WAVO underpins OSN’s strategy to offer entertainment anywhere for everyone, at a price to suit every pocket, as part of ‘new OSN’ launched earlier this year, specifically developed in the region, for the region,” the press release said.
Martin Stewart, CEO of OSN, said: “WAVO is the next phase of new OSN — entertainment everywhere for everyone at a price to suit every pocket. OSN has the best entertainment in the region by far and we’re making more of it available to more people through their devices.
“We have lots of happy customers but we know viewing habits are changing, particularly among the young, and we know that everyone, no matter how much they have to spend, wants convenient, quick access to great entertainment — WAVO helps OSN to deliver on that.”
WAVO offers a combination of both live and catch-up TV. Its content includes English and Arabic programming, covering hit TV series, blockbuster movies and live and exclusive sporting events with the option for English and Arabic subtitles.
Customers can sign up for WAVO Entertainment ($9.99 per month), WAVO Movies ($6.99 per month), WAVO Sports ($4.99 per day; $7.99 per week; $13.99 per month), or can opt for the WWE Network App ($9.99 per month).

Bentley marks 100 years at Monterey Car Week

Bentley marks 100 years at Monterey Car Week

As part of its centenary celebrations, Bentley hosted a number of events during the Monterey Car Week, from Aug. 15 to 18.

To mark the occasion, two models debuted — the new Flying Spur luxury four-door grand tourer, and the EXP 100 GT: A vision of luxury mobility in 2035.

The third-generation Flying Spur sets new standards of driving enjoyment and luxury, showcasing Bentley’s application of modern technology, while integrating the latest British craftsmanship and innovation features.

The new Flying Spur will be the most advanced luxury grand touring four-door available. 

Alongside its totally new and advanced aluminum and composite chassis, it features optional electronic all-wheel steering — a first for a Bentley, coupled with active all-wheel drive and the Bentley Dynamic Ride active anti-roll system powered by a 48V architecture.

The Flying Spur was put on display on Aug. 16 at the Quail — a motorsports gathering and at the Home of Bentley for the remainder of the weekend.

It was joined by the EXP 100 GT concept car, which made its US debut. With the EXP 100 GT, Bentley has reimagined the idea of grand touring for the future.

The EXP 100 GT is pure Bentley, inspired by the company’s deep understanding of the desires of its forward-thinking customers. It embraces artificial intelligence (AI) as a means to reassert the car as a place for creating, experiencing and capturing extraordinary human experiences and emotions.

It displays the future of luxury craftsmanship with a seamless fusion of materials and the intelligent curation of technology. The vehicle’s battery system will power four motors that deliver superior performance. Projected performance figures include a 0-60 mph time of less than 2.5 seconds, a top speed of 186 mph, and maximum torque of 1,500 Nm.

Ahead of the EXP 100 GT’s Americas debut, Bentley launched a new and dedicated app for Apple devices.

Released on Aug. 12, the “Bentley 100 AR” app uses a printable QR code to provide an augmented reality experience of the EXP 100 GT, allowing users to explore the exterior and interior of the concept car. Users can even interact with a virtual version of the car in full scale, by using the app at selected Bentley retailers.

Bentley was a featured marque at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where numerous classic models competed in Bentley Centennial classes, including Vintage 4 Cylinder, Vintage 6 Cylinder, Derby and Postwar.
