DUBAI: Regional TV and streaming company OSN has announced that it would be going fully “dishless” — accompanied by an upgraded version of the OSNtv box, new channels and new content.
The new Android-powered OSNtv box, which will launch on June 1, will provide live TV and streaming channels through one device. The box will no longer require any installation, and users with or without a dish subscription can plug it in to use the services.
The new product reflects OSN’s strategy toward “streaming TV with a linear environment,” according to a company statement.
The OSNtv user experience and interface have also been refreshed to give users more control over live TV channels, in addition to the integration of streaming platform OSN+ and a smoother interface aimed at making search and discovery easier.
“Upgrades to OSNtv now make viewing content even easier, while bringing OSN into a new age of dishless entertainment and streaming-first capabilities,” said Devrim Melek, senior vice president of strategy at OSN.
OSN has also launched three new channels: OSNtv One, OSNtv Showcase Classics and OSNtv Now.
“Together with new channel offerings, and an upgraded user experience, the company ensures that viewers have access to the very best in entertainment through an all-in-one product,” Melek added.
