BBC Worldwide has launched BBC Player in Malaysia, the second country to receive the service following its launch in Singapore in 2016.

The multi-genre service is available exclusively to subscribers of Telekom Malaysia Berhad’s (TM) IPTV service, HyppTV, through an authenticated subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service.

Hypp TV viewers will be able to watch BBC content anytime anywhere – online, as well as on their smartphones and tablets via an app. BBC Worldwide’s global brands, BBC First, BBC Brit, BBC Earth, BBC Lifestyle and CBeebies will all be available along with BBC World News.

“To launch BBC Player in Malaysia so soon after its successful introduction to Singapore is testament to both the very high quality of this product and the digital demand for our programming. This latest launch clearly signals the potential for Player to offer something new to our partners and audiences in further markets,” said Paul Dempsey, president, global markets, BBC Worldwide, in a statement.

BBC Player will be the exclusive home of new Top Gear (pictured) episodes in Malaysia. Other top shows available on BBC Player include Planet Earth II and The Great British Bake Off.
