So, after that, Kral Sakir will later in the future become a HBO Max Türk Original, and will no longer be a CN Turkey Original, and that Grafi2000 will continue to produce it for HBO Max Türk.

Currently, MENA and Sub-Saharan Region would keep their agreements, as OSN renewed HBO agreement.
OSN renews their agreement with HBO.

That happened after Disney+ content left OSN for good, as of New Year Eve of 2022; effective January 1st, 2022.


My guess is that MENA & Sub-Saharan Region could renew their agreements. beIN should end their agreements with WB due to Harry Potter being on OSN, and move back to OSN again.

Currently, they should launch HBO Max in MENA via Jawwy TV, OSN, and StarzPlay, just like Discovery+.

What’s next?! Ending WarnerMedia agreement with beIN and going back to OSN?! And all WB brand going back to OSN, all-in-one, leaving beIN?!

They should launch HBO Max currently on Jawwy TV, OSN, & StarzPlay, just like Discovery+.

Vodafone Greece is "in advanced discussions" with WarnerMedia for the promotion of HBO Max through Vodafone TV.

Now that HBO and Turner are the same thing, they could end the exclusivity on beIN and hopefully be on all platforms (which probably won't happen), or CN can return to OSN, but I guess that depends on when the carriage deal ends.

This might happen in the future, and that non-exclusivity would return. Hope they could bring back CN to OSN in the future (and going back to pre-2016), as the UAE changed their weekends to Saturday-Sunday, and CN MENA always depends on KSA timing and their weekends, Friday and Saturday, as they should change its name to CN Arabic HD.

I remember in the 2000s, when CN and TCM were non-exclusive to any Arabic Satellite Premium Provider, such as Orbit, Showtime, and ART. Then, Orbit and Showtime got merged to become OSN, and non-exclusivity rights to any provider has ended, but for TCM, it went non-exclusive again via My-HD (now-defunct company in 2020), between 2014 and January 2016 (the year beIN took the rights).

TCM has left beIN this month, but maybe it may return via OSN, whether in its current name or with renaming it to Warner TV, or maybe broadcast TNT Africa on OSN.

Also, last year, OSN had an agreement with WarnerMedia regarding Adult Swim content, and launched an Adult Swim Pop-up channel.

I hope this exclusivity nonsense is put to an end, where you have to have two providers to get a full pay-TV experience and go back to the way things were. It seems that WarnerMedia is all over the place, as the Turner and HBO channels were negotiated seperately before it became one division.

According to Slovak media and tech news website Zive, HBO Max will launch in Slovakia on 22nd February 2022. HBO Max príde na Slovensko budúci mesiac. Vieme presný deň a detaily

HBO Max in Latin America and Eastern Europe has picked up the first two seasons of Bagdasarian Productions’ CG-animated series ALVINNN!!! and the Chipmunks. This is another sign that an Eastern European launch for HBO Max is very soon.

what happened to Nostalgialodeon twitter user? Now it shows as twitter account doesn't exist

Bella/Big from Polly Pocket reminds me of Big Barda from DC Superhero Girls 2015, being a physically strong character who's initially antagonistic before becoming a friend to the main characters, and showing a softer side. Rhona Rees even seems to channel a voice similar to Misty Lee. I know Shea Fontana developed both shows, but still.
