CNBC extends distribution deal with OSN

Business news channel CNBC has renewed its distribution deal with Middle East pay TV operator OSN. OSN will also make CNBC content available on its OSN Play online on-demand platform. 

“Our priority is to provide the largest breadth of premium content that meets all requirements from our subscribers. Having built our credentials as the home of premium entertainment, we have built a strong news portfolio in which CNBC has a central position. By adding CNBC content to OSN Play in the near future, our subscribers will soon also have the opportunity to stay connected with the international business world on-the-go and anytime, anywhere,” said Emad Marcos, senior vice-president, media partners and digital at OSN.

Jacqueline Lam, vice-president of international distribution at CNBC, said: “Our agreement with OSN enables viewers across the MENA to watch the latest global business news and analysis, and access CNBC’s real-time data. This cements CNBC’s position as the premier provider of English language business programming in the region.”
