OSN has signed an exclusive multiyear deal with Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) that provides rights to all-new first-run Max originals and Warner Bros. Pictures feature films in the MENA region.

OSN subscribers in the region gain access to movies such as Barbie, Wonka, Dune: Part Two and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, as well as upcoming Max originals such as Dune: Prophecy and The Penguin.

The deal also includes new Warner Bros. Network, Off-Network and CW series, including Rescue: Hi-surf and Emperor of Ocean Park.

Joe Kawkabani, group CEO at OSN, said: “Today we strengthen our longstanding partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery with yet another exclusive deal that will further expand OSN+ and OSNtv’s content libraries and bring the studio’s biggest global films and new Max originals to our platforms first.”

Jamie Cooke, general manager for CEE and MENAT at WBD, added: “We are delighted to offer the full scope of Warner Bros. Discovery content to OSN, further complementing the already extensive library of HBO Original content currently available on its platforms. This agreement marks a pivotal moment in the MENA entertainment landscape and solidifies our valued relationship with one of the Middle East’s leading entertainment players.”
