Default OSN - Mozaic - ???

Good morning all,

I just moved to my new accomodation (yei me), so I get a tv with a satellite decoder, and landlord tells me is "free to air tv"... I said, ok whatev.

Of course a lot of useless channels, found fox and foxmovies, 1 bein and thats pretty much it. But I have the feeling this is somekind of ooredoo basic package, how can I be sure?

If not, Im planning to get either mozaic or OSN, specially since workd cup is 1 month away and I doubt sports bars will open until 4am to watch the games.

Any advice on which one and what package to get?

Thx!

It is free to view. Nothing to do with osn etc it's just like the digi box we would get in the UK with free channels.
You'll find MBC max etc on there too.
According to FIFA, BEIN have the exclusive rights to the World Cup for the MENA region so you need to contact BEIN. If you live on the Pearl you just go to your concierge and they will sort it for you.
Hope this helps

You cannot get Bein on OSN , the sattelite might recognise the channel but it's a totally different platform .

If you want the football then go for the HD Mosaic package with the full sports and OSN packages . There's also an option of getting a seperate HD Humax receiver .

Nothings straightforward here , even watching the football is a pain in the arse

Make sure you have the fibre optic installed as you'll need the HD , it's rubbish without it , it's like watching the footy through two jam jars

But if you just want bein then you can just pay for that without having to sign up to osn or anything else.
We pay for full bein package but we don't have osn. We just contacted bein direct and pay them for the full package.
Easy to do.
