According to TMgo’s official website which was briefly accessible earlier today before it was sealed off, the company is planning to offer the service in Pendang, Kedah and Melaka Tengah, Melaka. This revelation coincides with the report that TM has been testing LTE in Kedah last year.

No World Cup 2014 On HyppTV: RTM Channels To Be Blacked Out During Matches

by Chief Chapree · 2 months ago · 27 Comments · 14.7k views

RTM Black Out On HyppTV

For the longest time, we have been wondering if TM’s HyppTV will be broadcasting matches from the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2014. After all, the IPTV service does offer plenty of football contents such as UEFA Champions League, and English Premier League (via collaboration with Astro). Well, TM has finally answered our question recently and…unfortunately, it turns out that the answer is no.

Not even through RTM Free-To-Air (FTA) channels that are also shown on HyppTV. So, whenever a World Cup 2014 match takes place on RTM’s TV 1 or TV 2, these channels will be blacked out on HyppTV.

[Opinion] In Defence Of Malaysia’s “Slow” Internet

by Lucas Lau · 2 months ago · 34 Comments · 5.7k views

Malaysia

I complain about the state of Malaysia’s internet like the rest of you. I have experienced the golden pastures of Korea and Japan, clocking ridiculous speeds in coffee shops and seeing that Speedtest needle redline like a a drift car attacking a course. I have experienced the time where not even an instagram picture would load while my phone proudly reported H+ with a smug satisfaction, like it wasn’t just H, it was better than that.

But when people were sharing this article from a daily that based on a study conducted by Ookla (of speedtest.net fame) proclaimed Malaysia to have, on average, slower (therefore worse) internet than neighbours Vietnam & Cambodia, even my jaded eyebrow was raised.

Today I rise to the defence of our internet. The numbers don’t tell the full story and lead us on a roundabout journey of self loathing and MCMC complaints when in fact, we are not doing so badly at all. The number at the end of a speedtest is not the be all and end all, being able to take the test in more places anywhere in the country, is.

by Chief Chapree · 3 months ago · No Comments · 1.9k views

Astro 2014 FIFA World Cup Launch

So, by now you should know that the 2014 FIFA World Cup season pass on Astro is priced at RM 100. Of course, that’s unless you already subscribed to Astro’s Sports Pack before 30 April or Super Pack before 31 May – then you will have access for the tournament as part of your subscription without extra charges.

Astro apparently has also working on plenty of additional elements to add more value to the viewing experience of its World Cup coverage. In another words, Astro’s 2014 FIFA World Cup coverage is not just about those 64 live football matches from the tournament even though they are still the main attraction.

In general, this particular event serves as a continuation to the initial FIFA World Cup launch that Astro has held back in November 2013.

Hence, most of the announcements that Astro has made at the World Cup briefing yesterday have been teased back at the initial briefing in November. Just that this time around, more lights have been shed on them including the actual pricing for the Football Pass will allow Astro customers without Sports Pack or SuperPack as well as NJOI owners to view World Cup broadcast.
