Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong – Astro Shaw Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad (Astro) has secured the rights to broadcast and distribute Cantonese dramas from Hong Kong Media Production Company Limited, a subsidiary of Hong Kong Television Network Limited (HKTV). The deal extends Astro’s rights across Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia.
HKTV dramas will be a fresh addition to Astro’s customers’ already extensive line-up of dramas. The much talked about HKTV dramas have been making waves with star studded casts and production. As such securing the rights for Malaysia and the region where demand for such content is high, is a coup for Astro.
