From the 10th of November 2011, coinciding with the opening of the Dubai Motor Show viewers across the Middle East and Africa will be able to watch the programming of the pay-TV channel Motorvision TV exclusively OSN, the region's leading Pay TV network. Broadcasting will be in the English language with some content sub-titled in Arabic.

"We are very pleased to be able to showcase Motorvision TV to our customers across the region. Motoring entertainment programming is hugely popular in this region and the premium programming line-up in high definition on Motorvision TV will have a great traction with our OSN subscribers. Motorvision TV is an intelligent, entertaining channel - a perfect match for us," says David Butorac, CEO of OSN.

Motorvision TV covers the entire spectrum of topics related to the auto and mobility with brilliant visual storytelling, in-depth documentary features, reportages, portraits and magazine shows as well as light-hearted lifestyle formats. Viewers fascinated by technology will be just as well served as fans of thrilling motor sport.

"Viewers in the United Arab Emirates share with those in German a common passion, both populations love elegant and fast cars. Since 2009 we have with Motorvision TV shared our enthusiasm with the German television audience. Now thanks to OSN we have the opportunity to deliver our hugely attractive programming to our friends in the Middle East," says head of Motorvision TV Jochen Kroehne.
