Zain customers in Kuwait and Bahrain can now subscribe to OSN's premium TV content following a strategic partnership announced today between Zain Group, a pioneer of mobile telecommunications in the Middle East and North Africa, and OSN, the region's leading pay-TV network.

Zain Group plans to roll out similar initiatives in new markets allowing its large base of customers to enjoy more services as well as the convenience of subscribing to telecommunication and TV entertainment services from a single retail point.
Zain and OSN stand to benefit mutually through the partnership given the operator's impressive and well established distribution networks across its markets of operation and the network's digital entertainment services.

He continued, "We have an unyielding desire within Zain to acquire and commercialize new products and business models. We are confident that this partnership will help push the boundaries of integration between mobile communications and premium entertainment in order to meet and surpass our customers' passion for these new kind of experiences."
David Butorac, CEO of OSN, said, "The strategic partnership with leading telecom brand, Zain, will provide the most extensive range of exclusive and premium TV entertainment bundled with the latest communication services. We recently launched five new channels and have expanded our HD line-up which is currently the largest in the region giving customers more to look forward to. Customers will not only benefit from OSN's fantastic content and Zain's world class technology, but also the convenience of one place to shop."
