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).
