STARZ Play Aligns with Ooredoo


OMAN: Ooredoo has aligned with STARZ Play, bringing its Ooredoo TV customers on-demand access to the streaming platform’s 6,000 hours of content.

Ooredoo TV is a mobile TV app available for iOS and Android, priced at 4 rials per month. For a limited time, Ooredoo is offering subscribers a one-month free subscription to all its live TV channels and STARZ Play on-demand content.

“Everything around us is getting faster and more accessible, with more and more people using their smartphones for online services and information,” commented Johan Buse, COO at Ooredoo. “When we first started to develop the Ooredoo TV Go app, we took into consideration this smartphone trend as well as the importance of providing customers with high-quality streaming, competitive prices and a strong network reach that will enable them to enjoy this experience. Being able to watch your favorite movie or TV show any place, anytime and on any device, live or on-demand is now a reality and soon will become a way of life.”

He added, “This is only the beginning for Ooredoo TV Go. We will have more content and channels added in the future and we also have ambitious plans to have it optimized for television. Using our modernized network across the Sultanate, customers can look forward to a world of choice delivered through the most advanced streaming technology.”

Maaz Sheikh, CEO at STARZ Play, commented, “We continue our commitment to providing the best user experience to our subscribers, and this partnership with Ooredoo will allow us to build on our promise to provide our customers with world-class entertainment. The combination of SVOD platforms and telecom operators now brings Arab consumers the premium content they want at an affordable price, and offers them greater control over what they watch, when they watch, and what device they watch it on. Ooredoo TV Go is a solid example of how to deliver the maximum value and convenience to customers.”
