Malaysia will see a new cable TV operator tomorrow, a new company that vows to take on giant, Astro. While it would take time to see if they can take on Astro successfully, where other similar companies have failed, one has to take his hat off to them for having the guts to do so.
Cable TV is definitely very competitive even in Malaysia, where there’s free TV and so much more content on the internet. Obviously cable TV is different but if their pricing is not attractive, then they cannot fight with Astro. And Astro will continue to monopolize the cable TV market in Malaysia.
