October 5, 2021 – Sirius TV, a brand of Smart Digital International Sdn Bhd – the 2nd DTH (direct-to-home) operator in Malaysia – has signed a multi-year contract with SES, the leading global content connectivity solutions provider, to deliver a new bouquet of satellite TV channels across Malaysia. The Sirius Basic subscription package launched last Friday with 13 initial channels, five of which are broadcast in HD. The Siruis TV offering is available for an affordable annual fee starting from RM 299, and includes free installation, as well as the initial year for free. The bouquet of channels will continue to expand, and subscribers will gain access to the full range of channels once they are released. Sirius TV will be using high-powered capacity on the SES-12 satellite – SES’s advanced geostationary satellite at 95 degrees East – to support the distribution of channels to over 7.5 million satellite TV equipped homes across Malaysia. In addition, Sirius TV has adopted SES’s Cloud Playout services, which provides a cost-effective solution while enabling an agile and scalable business model as the broadcast and media industries move toward a cloud-focused landscape.
