OSN, the pay television network, has added a new channel for Disney lovers. OSN Movies Disney HD will show animations, live-action features, classic Disney films and new titles, starting on March 1.
It is the first co-branded Disney channel in the Middle East and North Africa, and only the fourth such channel in the world. OSN Movies Disney HD will be available in English and Arabic. Movies screened on the channel will arrive at least one year prior to anywhere else in the region, according to a statement. The channel can also be accessed on OSN Play and OSN On Demand. Classics such as Aladdin, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast will be included, as well as the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Moana and Toy Story.
The channel will also exclusively premiere Cars 3. OSN Movies HD joins other Disney channels on OSN, including Disney XD, Disney Junior and Disney Channel HD. Later this year, OSN will introduce Arabic-dubbed content to Disney XD.
