The operator will launch My OSN later this year or early next year and will offer a catch up service and some channels streamed online.
David Butorac, the chief executive of the Orbit Showtime Network, said: “You’d be able to catch up with your favourite series online. It’s a big step forward. We will expand the OSN experience to be across multiple platforms – so not just the broadcast platform that there is today, but also across tablets, smartphones and online.”
The platform operator, is, separately, launching a new general entertainment channel OSN Yahala! HD. The high definition channel, which will launch over satellite in the Middle East and across Africa, will air a mix of entertainment and drama series and Hollywood movies.
