SHOWBIZ: Hypp anywhere, anytime

TELEKOM Malaysia’s (TM) IPTV service Hypp TV — powered by broadband service UniFi — is now available to all Streamyx 4mbps and 8mbps customers on multi-screen services.

TM chairman Datuk Seri Dr Halim Shafie says that as of this month, Hypp TV is a countrywide service for broadband customers.

“This is in line with TM’s aspiration to deliver an enhanced, integrated digital lifestyle to the people,” he says.

Hypp TV Everywhere will enable UniFi and Streamyx (4mbps and 8mbps) customers watch Hypp TV anywhere and anytime on their various devices.

Halim says:”This is truly a big step forward for Hypp TV in its short history. The service is now readily available over our extensive broadband network as well as on multiple platforms through Hypp TV Everywhere.”

As the fastest growing IPTV service in the market, Hypp TV now allows all Malaysians to enjoy its diverse television series and films, even if they are outside the UniFi coverage areas, come rain or shine.

“Hypp TV is not just primetime, anytime and everytime as per our tagline but also everywhere now,” he says.

Hypp TV Everywhere was launched by Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek recently. Also present were Halim, TM group chief executive officer Tan Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa, the Ministry’s deputy secretary-general Datuk Che Azemi Haron and Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission chairman Datuk Sharil Mohd Tarmizi.

Hypp TV is currently available via VIP packages, a triple-play offering that combines voice, video and data on Streamyx (4mbps and 8mbps).

For new and existing Streamyx 8mbps customers, Hypp TV is offered as part of Streamyx’s Internet and IPTV package for RM160 per month with 17 free channels. Those who subscribe to Streamyx 4mbps, can get Hypp TV as an add-on service for RM30 per month with 17 free channels.

Hypp TV Everywhere is offered as an add-on service for current UniFi and Streamyx (4mbps and 8mbps) customers. New and existing Hypp TV customers need only pay RM5 per month for two devices or RM10 per month for five devices.

As an introductory promotion, all UniFi and Streamyx customers get to enjoy the Hypp TV Everywhere service for two devices for free, for the whole of September.

Existing customers can download Hypp TV Everywhere app from Play Store or Apple Store.
