Orange Jordan and MBC renew agreement
Operator adds new content to its mobile TV services for Ramadan.
Jordanian telco Orange Jordan has renewed its agreement with MBC Group, the first pan-Arab free-to-air satellite station. The new agreement will enable Orange Jordan customers to view a collection of popular TV shows via their mobiles including the upcoming Ramadan programs and series, Khawater 7 program and Arabs Got Talent TV show.
Mohamed Benhamadi, contents and portal director, Orange Jordan, said that the telco offers its customers a bundle of popular TV shows which "they can watch anytime and anywhere on their handsets without missing any episode."
Dr Ammar Bakkar group director of new media at MBC, said that the new agreement will allow viewers to watch popular TV shows with HD quality.
Orange customers can watch Ramadan series one day prior to its screening for 20 piasters per programme requested. The telco's subscribers can also enjoy this service for free during the first five days. The same pricing applies to the Arabs Got Talent TV show where the operator offers the first three episodes for free.
Orange provides mobile TV service through its television content platform, and offers news and entertainment programs such as MBC1 and Al Arabiya channels.
Earlier, in February 2010, Orange Jordan started offering content services to its customers by signing an exclusive agreement with MBC Group. The operator also provided its customers with the World Cup 2010 content exclusively on their handsets, and it provided the Star Academy.
Orange was awarded Jordan's first 3G licence back in August 2009. Zain Jordan and Umniah are the two other operators offering mobile services in the country.
