22 million Arabic SVOD Subs by 2027

There will be 21.52 million paying SVOD subscriptions [TV episodes and movies only] across 13 Arabic countries by 2027, up from 9.49 million in 2021.

Simon Murray, the Principal Analyst, said: “Netflix will continue to lead the market, although Disney+ has provided a strong challenge since June. We assume that Netflix and Disney+ will add hybrid ad-supported tiers in a pan-Arabic platform from 2024.”

Despite its fast growth, Disney+ will remain behind StarzPlay (3.47 million subscribers by 2027) and Shahid VIP (3.77 million subscribers by 2027).

OSN lost some momentum after Disney+ withdrew its content and started as a standalone platform, However, OSN will retain exclusive rights to HBO Max and Paramount+ content. OSN will have 1.60 million paying SVOD subscribers by 2027.
