Bahrain telco VIVA has added video-on-demand (VOD) service Starz Play Arabia to its high definition (HD) entertainment offer.

VIVA customers will be able to access Hollywood movies, TV series and children's entertainment from Starz Play across up to five Internet-connected devices.

To mark the launch, VIVA is offering a month's free trial of Starz Play Arabia. Subsequently, thousands of hours worth of on-demand content will be available for BD4.9 per month. Exclusive content such as Blunt Talk and Ray Donovan will be streamed on the platform at the same time as they are aired in the US.

Content on Starz Play Arabia will be in English with Arabic subtitles or, in the case of children's content, dubbed into Arabic, without advertising or interruption.
