Zain KSA Readies For Own Video Streaming Service

Zain KSA and Huawei are partnering towards implementing a ‘to Home’ video streaming service platform and infrastructure. The development comes on the back of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Zain and Huawei on the sidelines of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

This project will position Zain Saudi Arabia among the first telecom operators in the Middle East to use a cloud solution to build its own video services.

“We are committed to meeting and exceeding our customers’ needs and expectations, and through our latest agreements with Huawei, we’ll continue to help lead communities and businesses forward through new connected experiences,” commented Eng. Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz Al Deghaither, CEO, Zain KSA.

The video service will give viewers access to pre-integrated OSN entertainment channels as well access to OSN’s on-demand TV service and online catch-up platform, OSN Play. The service will offer big data-based analysis function which gives users individualized recommendations and targeted advertisements.

Zain is one of the leading companies in Saudi Arabia and we are honored to be working together,” added Dennis Zhang, CEO of Huawei Tech Investment Saudi Arabia.
