OSN Binge to launch in April, to offer viewers a destination for an uninterrupted marathon-viewing experience

Dubai-based pay TV network OSN has announced plans to launch a new channel to offer viewers a destination for an uninterrupted marathon-viewing experience.

The OSN Binge Channel will launch on Monday April 1 and will kick off with the most talked about show on the planet, Game of Thrones - seasons 1 to 7, with five episodes aired back-to-back every night until the new season launches on April 15.

Other shows to binge watch 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 boxes to series link and record shows to watch at their leisure or simply kick back and relax, OSN said in a statement.

Emad Morcos, chief content officer, OSN said: “Over the past few months we’ve been listening to our customer’s 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.”

The launch of OSN Binge is part of OSN's channel refresh which aims to offer a richer programming experience for all customers.
