Viewers will need to log onto the worldip.tv website with a broadband-enabled
personal computer or a 3G (third-generation) cellphone in order to get the live
streaming and video-on-demand programmes.
The IPTV (Internet Protocol TV) service is being offered by Broadway Digital Media (BDM) Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of music company Broadway Entertainment (M) Sdn Bhd.
Local channels available are TV3, ntv7, 8TV and TV9 while the foreign channels are
Indonesia’s Metro TV and China’s Dragon TV.
The service is free until June, after which BDM would charge local customers RM10 a month while overseas subscribers will have to pay US$5 (RM17), BDM chairman Aziz Bakar said.
“With this service, you’ll never have to rush home to catch Bulletin Utama
(or any other favourite TV show). You have the next 24 hours to watch it on our
service,” he added.
Besides professionals who are always on the move, BDM is also targeting Malaysian students and expatriates.
“CNN would not normally show you news of floods (in the country). So if you are overseas, you can watch it on our portal. You can also get news about your hometown, from wherever you are,” said BDM chief executive officer Boon Tan.

Watch Live TV3, 8TV, 9TV and other Asian Channels for FREE!!
World IP TV is giving free access until June to watch our Malaysian TV Channels and some other Asia TV Channels for free! All you need is a broadband access and you can Register for free to watch it!
I think this would really benefit all Malaysians who are either studying or working overseas. This is where they can at least tune back to catch some local flavor!
