Mediacorp has partnered with over-the-top platform Iflix to host its content on both iflixVIP, the platform’s traditional video-on-demand tier and iflixFree, the platform’s ad-supported tier.

The Singapore broadcaster hopes this partnership with the Malaysia-based OTT platform will allow it to expand its footprint in countries such as Indonesia, Myanmar and the Philippines, Cambodia and Vietnam.

All Iflix subscribers in Asia will be able to access Mediacorp library of made-in-Singapore dramas, variety shows and movies. These consist of memorable classics and recent blockbusters like The Unbeatables III, The Little Nyonya and C.L.I.F., as well as English dramas like Code of Law and Phua Chu Kang.
