DUBAI, April 8, 2015

OSN, a leading pay-TV network in the region, will bring the much-awaited fifth season of epic fantasy drama ‘Game of Thrones’ at the same time as the US exclusively to its subscribers in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

Starting April 13, a new episode will air every Monday on OSN First HD at the same time as in the US, said a statement.

Fans will also have the option to watch the highly anticipated new season on OSN Play and OSN On Demand.

Meanwhile, all 40 episodes from seasons one to four are available to enjoy via OSN’s exclusive On-demand service and on OSN Play.

Fans can also watch several behind-the-scenes and special features underlining OSN’s credentials as the home for HBO’s award-winning series.

Khulud Abu Homos, executive vice president for Programming, said: “We are delighted to bring the most-watched series in HBO history and a worldwide TV phenomenon, ‘Game of Thrones’ at the same minute that it is telecast in the US to the region.

“OSN has redefined TV industry norms in the region with our focus on bringing brand-new series and shows at the same time of their international premiere.

“This is truly unprecedented and offers our subscribers to be part of the global television experience and not spoil their suspense. This is a game changer for the industry and we are strengthening our portfolio of same-minute telecasts with seven popular series this year.”

‘Game of Thrones’ is based on the bestselling book series by George R R Martin, and set in the fantasy continents of Westeros and Essos, where summers and winters can last years.

The Emmy Award-winning drama series returns in April with an all-new season of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honour, conquest and triumph, said the statement.

Several compelling storylines will play out in the new season, beginning with a power vacuum that protagonists across Westeros and Essos look to fill, it added. - TradeArabia News Service
