Called iflix NEWS, the service will be available to all users for free from 3 September 2018.

It will feature amalgamated feeds from familiar international and regional news authorities, including CNN, Al Jazeera, DW, CGTN, and CCTV 4.
iflix NEWS also features direct access to local linear news channels including CNN in the Philippines Bernama News Channel, and KiniTV in Malaysia, Berita Satu and Kompas TV in Indonesia, Thairath TV and Spring News in Thailand and Mizzima TV in Myanmar.

“Technology has dramatically reshaped the news and media industries over the past decade. Audiences today, particularly the rapidly growing youth segments want immediate access to the stories and events that are shaping the world around them. Through iflix NEWS, we are working with many of world’s most trusted and reputable news sources, to deliver timely, comprehensive stories and current affairs to customers with an exceptional user experience, completely on their own terms,” said iflix co-founder and CEO, Mark Britt.

“We have invested significantly in the creation and development of our new 24-hour news hub including editorial and curation teams and infrastructure, working in close partnership with international, regional and local content providers.”

The news service, alongside iflix’ existing Hollywood, regional, and local TV shows and movies will help the video-on-demand (VOD) platform’s ambition to become “a truly ubiquitous service” across emerging markets, Britt added.
