Digital-headerstarz spotifyQatar-based teleco Ooredoo has partnered with Starz Play for the launch of its mobile TV app, Ooredoo TV Go.

The recently released iOS and Android app gives users access to more than 6,000 hours of TV shows and movies, with Starz’s catalogue of on-demand content available alongside live TV channels.

“Being able to watch your favourite movie or TV show any place, any time and on any device, live or on-demand is now a reality and soon will become a way of life,” said Ooredoo chief commercial officer Johan Buse.

“This is only the beginning for Ooredoo TV Go. We will have more content and channels added in the future and we also have ambitious plans to have it optimised for television.”

Starz Play CEO Maaz Sheikh said that the Ooredoo TV Go deal is a “solid example of how to deliver the maximum value and convenience to customers.”

“The combination of SVOD platforms and telecom operators now brings Arab consumers the premium content they want at an affordable price, and offers them greater control over what they watch, when they watch, and what device they watch it on.”
