Viacom International Media Networks will expand its offerings on OSN, the leading pay TV network in the Middle East and North Africa region, with the addition of three new 24-hour channels.
The additions are Nickelodeon HD, Nick Jr. and MTV Live HD, all set to launch Jan. 5. That brings the number of VIMN channels in the region to four with the already existing VH1.
This announcement signifies Viacom International Media Networks’ decisive move into the region and strengthens its ability to deliver high quality content appealing to various key age demographics in MENA.
Also, beginning in February 2015, both Nickelodeon HD and Nick Jr. will be available in dual language (English and Arabic). VIMN’s Dubai Media City team will take over the production of Nickelodeon HD, transforming it into the only international kids TV channel available in Arabic produced in the MENA region exclusively for OSN.
VIMN channels and content will be also available on OSN Play, the region´s first online viewing platform, allowing viewers to watch their favorite shows anytime, anywhere on multiple devices.
