Best Live TV App Works in GCC
With the growth of online and on-demand services, the television broadcasting industry has changed so much in the last few years. Those days of eagerly waiting to catch the latest weekly episode of your favorite show the moment it was broadcast is gone away. Those days of needing a TV to watch your favorite shows are also gone away. Now you can download an entire season long box set and you can watch it on your laptop, tablet or even on your mobile phones. Here is the list of some of the best live TV apps working in GCC.
Netflix is the great granddaddy of streaming services. Netflix provides unlimited streaming of TV shows, movies, comedy specials and original programming for one monthly subscription fee. You can even create up to five different profiles on a single account to make sure that your favorite content doesn’t mess up recommendations for your friends and loved ones. Netflix is more expensive than other services.
OSN PLAY & OSN GO
OSN was the region’s biggest pay-TV providers. OSN launched OSN play in 2012. They were the first out of the blocks for online streaming. The Play service offered existing subscribers thousands of hours of on-demand content as well as access to 18 live streaming channels from the OSN stable. Two years later OSN launched OSN Go. OSN Go is a standalone service offering blockbuster movies, series and box sets in English and Arabic on a range of devices for a $10 a month subscription fee.
Starz Play Arabic was launched in 17 countries in 2015. It is the regional online streaming arm of the US Starz Networks and the Middle East Franchise. It is one of the first global streaming enterprises to offer a tailored version to the viewers.
Hulu provides access to most major network shows and a handful of cable shows. In addition, the service hosts a number of original shows, a selection of offbeat movies and a surprising amount of classic anime series. Hulu is less expensive than Netflix.
Like Netflix, Amazon Prime Instant Video is a veritable buffet of movies, television, and original programming. Amazon Prime arguably has a better selection of comedy and children’s programming than its competitors. The service also offers unlimited access to an extensive collection from HBO’s back catalog of classics.
