Maharaja Lawak Mega
Singapore – From 1 January 2015, StarHub TV customers can look forward to light-hearted, round-the-clock entertainment from Astro Warna (StarHub TV Channel 118), the only dedicated Malay comedy channel from Malaysia. To coincide with the launch, StarHub will also introduce two new packs – AneKa! Pack and Idaman Pack. The two packs are for StarHub TV Lite and StarHub TV customers respectively, on 10 January 2015. Both packs will include the new Astro Warna.
Astro Warna, one of the channels in Malaysia, and operated by Southeast Asia’s integrated consumer media entertainment group, Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad, will offer Singapore audiences a specially curated comedy line-up across genres like movies, variety shows, drama series and sitcoms. It will feature programming from Astro’s local productions, as well as international content dubbed in either Bahasa Melayu or Bahasa Indonesia.
Programmes on Astro Warna in January include the ‘live’ broadcast of Maharaja Lawak Mega 2014, a reality competition which allows the best comedians to impress the judges with humorous skits; Anugerah Lawak Warna, an awards ceremony that recognises those who work in the field of comedy in the media industry; Cakap Melayu Lah!, a sitcom revolving around characters in a Malay Language Education Centre, and #havocwarna, a variety programme that showcases comedy skits, spontaneous pranks and fun chit-chat shows.
