Lady and the Tramp, a Disney original is one of the many new movies that will be available to OSN users.

OSN is set to be the exclusive distributor of The Walt Disney Company’s new Disney+ Originals in the Middle East region, across both its box and streaming services.

The arrival of Disney+ Originals adds exclusive movies and series from Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and National Geographic to its portfolio of exclusive rights from other major Hollywood studios.

The content will be available across both OSN’s platforms via its box and its relaunched streaming service.

The news comes on the back of OSN’s announcement that it will rebrand its Wavo service to OSN.

Patrick Tillieux, CEO, OSN, said: “We’re delighted to strengthen our alliance with Disney. Adding Disney+ Originals to our boxes and streaming services is a huge milestone for us and reinforces our commitment to offering premium content to our regional audience from only the most exceptional brands.”

Dosney’s content library on OSN will include content such as The Mandalorian, Star Wars series; Lady and the Tramp, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series to name a few.

Amit Malhotra, regional lead, content sales and distribution, The Walt Disney Company said: “Given that we currently do not plan to launch Disney+ as a standalone service in the region in the near future, we are pleased to work with OSN to bring Disney+ Originals to viewers in the Middle East.”

Disney+ Originals will be available to OSN TV subscribers, as well as on OSN’s new streaming service.
