OSN launches Binge Channel with Game of Thrones marathon

Middle East pay TV provider OSN is to launch a new linear Binge Channel in April that will offer what the company calls an uninterrupted marathon-viewing experience.

The Binge Channel will kick off on April 1 with an offering of five back-to-back episodes of seasons one to seven of Game of Thrones every night from 22:00 Saudi time until the new season launches on April 15.

Other shows to be aired on the channel include Scandal (season 7), The Good Doctor (season 2), Succession (season 1), Lethal Weapon (seasons 2 and 3) and Westworld (seasons 1 and 2).

Viewers can set their DVR boxes to series link and record shows to watch at their leisure, or watch them in real time on the channel.

Emad Morcos, chief content officer, OSN said: “Over the past few months we’ve been listening to our customers’ suggestions and feedback, and two key things that were strikingly clear was that our customers want a simpler more focused channel offering and an easier way to find more of the content they love and that’s how the OSN Binge Channel was born. We’re also putting even more content on OSN Play and OSN On Demand than ever, making sure that series-lovers across the region can always watch anytime, anywhere and on any device.”
