Qatari telco Ooredoo, previously known as Qtel, said on Monday it has signed a multi-territory, multi-year deal with The Walt Disney Company Middle East and North Africa to bring its entertainment content to Ooredoo customers for the first time.

Customers of Ooredoo's Next Generation Mozaic TV service will be able to access Disney Movies on demand, Disney Channels on demand and ABC TV on demand via the video-on-demand services both at home and on connected devices.

Services are due to launch in Qatar later this year, the telco said in a statement.

In addition, customers will be able to catch-up on box sets of hit shows, including Desperate Housewives, Private Practice, Ugly Betty and Lost and watch recent ABC TV series such as Body of Proof.

The multi-screen agreement will enable customers to access the content via iPads, iPhones and PCs, as well as their television.

Waleed Al Sayed, chief operating officer, Ooredoo, said: "This is a milestone agreement for Ooredoo as we link with one of the world's leading companies to provide the very best content for our customers.

"Disney is a brand that is known and loved all around the world by children and families, and we are delighted to be able to offer such a range of fantastic family entertainment directly to our customers."

"The agreement between Ooredoo and The Walt Disney Company, Middle East and North Africa is part of Ooredoo's commitment in bringing the very best of family entertainment to customers in Qatar," the statement said.

It added that as the Ooredoo Fibre network continues to roll-out across Qatar, more and more homes are being upgraded and will be able to subscribe to Next Generation Mozaic TV.
