Star Media Group Bhd officially launched its latest digital project; dimsum.my, Malaysia's first homegrown Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming service providing all-Asian content.
Currently on its first phase, dimsum.my offers a variety of choice from 10,000 hours of content including movies, dramas, documentaries, variety shows and children’s programmes from China, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea and Malaysia.
Realising the importance for the company to embrace new technology, the group had undergone digitalisation of all its assets to ensure it was able to face the challenges and impact of the Internet.
“Our next part of the journey continues our strategy into digital entertainment within the OTT sphere. We have specifically put our focus into the video-on-demand space, which is currently taking the world by storm," said Datuk Fu Ah Kiow, Chairman of Star Media Group.
“This product will serve the best Asian content – the A-list shows, with exclusives, premieres, and same-day same-time release with their country of origin,” the Chairman further commented. “This is a big leap for us in transforming our business and preparing us for the future.”
The VOD service is now available for download on Google Play and the Apple App Store, and can also be viewed at dimsum.my.
