Kuwait-based mobile operator Zain has agreed a deal with Arabic audio-video distribution company Rotana Holding. The deal means that Zain’s customers will be able to access Rotana’s digital entertainment services, including music downloads, via the Zain Create mobile application. The services will initially be available to Zain’s customers in Kuwait, with expansion to Zain Group’s other Middle Eastern operations to follow. Zain Kuwait claimed a total of 1.77 million mobile subscribers in December 2008, a 57.4% market share.
