Singtel brings Malaysia's tonton to its CAST app

Singtel has launched one of Malaysia’s top streaming services, Media Prima’s tonton, on Singtel’s video streaming app CAST. Together with its current offering of Astro Ria and Astro Prima Malay
channels on Singtel TV’s Inspirasi packs, Singtel now offers the most extensive array of Malay entertainment content to viewers in Singapore.

Exclusively available outside Malaysia for the first time, tonton on CAST will offer over 23,000 hours of curated Malay entertainment, including programmes from TV3, TV9 and tonton originals. Singtel customers can expect to enjoy top-notch Malaysian dramas up to six months ahead of the television broadcast schedule in Malaysia, and also catch live events such as Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian and top-rated dramas such as Ku Kirim Cinta. The over-the-top (OTT) video service is available on CAST’s Aneka Plus pack.

Yuen Kuan Moon, CEO, Consumer Singapore, Singtel, said, “We aim to bring our Malay viewers the content that they love on the devices they prefer. With Aneka Plus, our customers can enjoy exclusive first look at top-notch Malay-language content from tonton on their mobile devices. We look forward to adding more compelling OTT content for our customers’ on-the-go viewing pleasure.

“OTT content is an important part of our strategy to connect with our customers. We started strong with companion app Singtel TV GO in 2013 and to further meet our customers’ OTT entertainment demands, we offered Netflix and Viu. We launched CAST as a one-stop solution to their varied viewing needs and quickly expanded our offerings to include exciting OTT options such as FOX+ and tonton.”

CAST streams premium OTT Korean, Asian, English and Malay-language, and sports content. In addition to Aneka Plus, CAST offers Partner Apps, Viu Premium and FOX+, as well as Variety Plus,
Asian Plus and Sports Plus packs.
