Pan-Arab pay-TV operator OSN has added the high definition (HD) versions of Animal Planet and Discovery Science to its channel portfolio.

The move comes days after rival Middle East and North Africa (MENA) satellite platform My-HD announced it had also signed up the two Discovery channels.

"Drawing on the power of content and technology, the addition of Animal Planet HD and Discovery Science HD underline our commitment to provide an entertaining yet educational experience for viewers of all ages," said David Butorac, chief executive officer, OSN.

Animal Planet HD and Discovery Science HD follow Fight Network HD, the Sundance Channel HD, GEO News, SAB TV and DZMM TeleRadyo TV channels onto OSN's platform this year.
