stc and MBC GROUP announce strategic partnership to offer Shahid VIP to stc customers

stc and MBC GROUP – the leading telecom and media groups – announced today the signing of a joint partnership to offer Shahid VIP, MBC’s premium subscription video on demand (SVOD) service, to stc customers for no additional cost for the duration of two months. This is in line with both companies’ continued mission to offer customers and audiences the best content from the region and beyond.
stc users now have the opportunity to watch a variety of exclusive and original Arabic TV shows and movies. Users will also gain access to MBC’s live channels anytime anywhere – thanks to the Shahid app available on smartphones and a number of Smart TVs – directly via their stc account.
Under this new agreement, stc customers will receive a two-month Shahid VIP package free of charge by signing up to the platform using their packages. All stc customers have to do is send “1” via SMS to 808885 to start their content viewing journey.
Following the promotion, stc customers who would like to convert and continue their viewing journey uninterrupted can do so for SAR 19.99 per month, which can be directly added to a customer’s stc post-paid monthly bill for convenience. Payment is also available via deduction from a prepaid offering via the “sawa” SIM. In parallel, work is currently underway to launch joint packages and offers between Jawwy TV and Shahid VIP, in addition to offering a wide range of vouchers to customers.
This partnership comes in conjunction with MBC GROUP launching an exclusive and diverse set of Arabic-language series and other programmes this Ramadan, in addition to Shahid Originals and Shahid Premieres offering exclusive content shown for the first-time; and the best family entertainment content suitable for children, from Disney – in both Arabic and English languages – plus Marvel, and Pixar, in addition to families having peace of mind with Shahid’s parental controls. Meanwhile, content on Shahid VIP can be downloaded for offline viewing, and is streamed ad-free for no interruptions.
It is worth noting that this joint partnership reflects the on-going commitment of stc to enrich its valued customers lives, by providing them with value-added services in terms of audio-visual (TV and streaming), audio, print, online, digital apps and other types of content/platforms… all this in an effort from stc to offer the best products and services that would meet the needs and desires of its customers.
