Since there’s no big parade for this year’s Merdeka due to the pandemic, you can show your love for the country by staying at home and binging on your favourite Malaysian films and series (and some foreign classics too) on YouTube – for free!
YouTube Malaysia is collaborating with Astro, Media Prima, Muse and WebTVAsia to release some of the best local entertainment for the public to enjoy during the Hari Kebangsaan season.
The ‘Super Stream’ will be available on Google Malaysia’s YouTube channel, kicking it off with popular Japanese anime series such as ‘One Punch Man’ from 15 August until 4 September by Muse Malaysia.
From 17 – 23 August, it’s all about the latest Malaysian dramas by Media Prima, followed by a back-to-back 24-hour live stream of all seasons from classic sketch comedy Senario from 24 August until 1 September 2020.
Get the popcorn ready from 29 – 31 August as WebTVAsia is premiering its first-ever 72-hour movie marathon. Although we don’t know what movies they will be showing, we’re guessing it will be worth your time and all in the spirit of patriotism.
WebTVAsia will continue to show 50 Malaysian blockbusters including Lee Chong Wei The Movie, Bunohan, Gol & Gincu 1 & 2, and Nasi Lemak 2.0 from Merdeka until 16 September. Astro Gempak is also showing their local dramas, comedies, talent shows and more from 1 – 14 September 2020.
