BBC First availability in the Middle East
BBC First is available exclusively via OSN on channel 215. You can also catch up with all your favourite shows on OSN Play.
BBC First gives audiences the very first chance to see stories that challenge, immerse and entertain, all with a unique British perspective.
The long-running and hugely popular EastEnders is brought to OSN viewers soon after its UK broadcast. The channel is also the first place to premiere the BBC’s biggest drama titles and express to Middle Eastern and North African audiences.
As part of our global strategy, the channel has replaced the pan-regional BBC Entertainment channel with increased investment into content and key titles introduced with Arabic subtitles.
