OSN announces new prices and packages

With 4k content expected to roll out later this year

In a press conference held this morning in Dubai, leading cable and satellite TV provider OSN announced a shake up to its existing plans and pricing structure.

This takes the shape of five new HD packages: Ultimate Movies Pack, Ultimate Sports Pack, Ultimate Entertainment Pack, Movies Pack and the base Entertainment GetStarted Pack which will run at AED79 per month (around US$22) with the other packages available at an additional a la carte cost.

The roll-out, effective immediately, is the result of over half a year's worth of extensive research - polling 40,000 households to determine customers needs.

When queried about whether any of the included content would be available in 4k, OSN CEO Martin Stewart told Stuff that the current crop of re-branded channels will remain HD for now, however the company is looking towards a 4k rollout later in 2017.
