We are delighted to further strengthen this relationship through the new 2nd pay window agreement for our movies, which offers OSN customers more of the premium family entertainment Disney is known and loved for across this region, and the rest of the world.”

The announcement will add to the delight of children and families, with OSN’s subscribers having access to blockbuster hits and TV movies such as Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge and Wreck-it Ralph 2.
