Orbit Showtime Network (OSN) was created by merger of the two largest pay TV operators in the Middle East: Orbit Communications Company – a member of Riyadh-based Mawarid Holdings, and Showtime Arabia – a subsidiary of KIPCO. Showtime Arabia was launched in 1996 as a joint venture between KIPCO (79%) and NBCUniversal (21%) and six years after its launch became the number one satellite television platform in MENA. Showtime Arabia continued its growth in the region by adding a range of new channels and new services such as the “Showbox DVR’ System in 2005 which allowed subscribers to record different programs. In 2008, Showtime Arabia also introduced a video on-demand service, broadcasting full seasons of premier U.S. series and top Hollywood movies. Bahrain-based Orbit was the first pay TV service in the Middle East though challenging environment —from rampant piracy to stubbornly low subscriber base— drove it to consolidate with the larger Showtime to better compete with popular free-to-air satellite television.
