A word of caution, the video player only works in Internet Explorer. The first time I tried with Firefox, nothing came out on my screen. Only to found out later in their Support section that it does not support my favourite browser. My first to-watch list – Destinasi Bajet. I missed out the episodes last night. The video streams effortlessly, as if I’m really watching the show on TV. It doesn’t jerk/lack. It plays continuosly. It was a blast! Drawback? The show do includes TV advertisements. Nice try, but guess what? You get to forward the ads, how convenient!

I’m giving them both thumbs up for their effort in bringing our local TV shows on the internet, providing access to almost anyone in the world, as well as allowing Malaysians who are abroad to catch up with their favourite TV programmes.

Having yet to confirmed on their subscription fees, Chief Executive Officer, Boon Tan says the service will be provided at a low monthly subscription fee. Some digging on my own revealed that previous report from The Star covering the emergence of this service provided by WorldIP.TV is looking at RM10 per month for local subscribers while oversea subsribers will be looking at paying USD5 per month.

Quoting from the article published on The Star, Tuesday 24th April 2007:

“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.”

I personally think the subscription fee is very affordable, comparing to paying satellite TV that required you to put up certain amount of money on decoder and subject to certain minimum period of subscription while you can’t possibly watch every single stations’ programme offerings. If WorldIP.TV figured to roped in more international main stream TV channels such of those offered on Astro, they’re gonna be big. The website are currently showing programmes such as Destinasi Bajet, Gangstarzs, So You Think You Can Dance, My Australian Adventure, Star Idol Malaysia, Jangan Tidur Lagi and many other locally produced shows.

Uncommon magic at 07:20 hour: Discovered new entertainment, watch your local TV show online – free, for now.
