Dimsum Calls It Quits, After Less Than 5 years!

No More Dimsum : Why It Lasted Less Than 5 Years!

It’s the end for Dimsum, after Star Media Group management announced their decision to shut it down!

Find out what just happened, and why it lasted less than 5 years!

 

Dimsum Calls It Quits, After Less Than 5 years!

After less than 5 years, Star Media Group is calling it quits in the VOD (Video On Demand) subscription business.

On 6 April 2021, they announced that they would shut down Dimsum Entertainment by 30 September 2021.

This decision came after the media group appointed Alex Yeow Wai Saw as CEO on 1 March 2021, and Tan Sri Chor Chee Heung as independent and non-executive chairman on 15 March 2021.

 

Why Did Dimsum Fail?

Officially, a strategic review by its new key management team apparently identified new opportunities for the group to explore.

Chief marketing officer Lam Swee Kim said that while it was a difficult decision to end this chapter, “we are excited to explore promising new ventures in the near future”.

What’s left unsaid is that in the last 4+ years, Dimsum had very little mindshare, even though it offers free viewing, supported by ads.

It focused on Asian content, which is also the focus on iflix and iQIYI (both of which are more established) as well as Viu.

But people who wanted to watch Chinese shows would stick with iQIYI, while those who wanted Korean shows would use Viu. iflix had better luck with ASEAN content.

And with Disney+ coming to Malaysia very soon – the launch was slated for 31 March 2021, but got delayed at the last minute – the writing was on the wall.

Granted, Disney+ would be competing mainly with Netflix and Apple TV+, but most Malaysians can hardly afford multiple streaming services.

If given the option between paying for Disney+ and paying for Dimsum VIP, the choice seems obvious.

The new management team probably “understood” that they would see subscribers shifting to the free offering, and decided to cut losses.

Honestly, we doubt many people would notice them leaving… there are simply too many alternative options offering the same or similar Asian content.

Netflix Teases Sex Education Season 2 : Video + Pictures!

Netflix just released a video trailer, six teaser photos and some plot teasers of Sex Education Season 2! Here are the full details!

 

Sex Education

In Sex Education, Otis Milburn is a socially awkward high school student who is the son of a sex therapist – Jean.

In Season 1, Otis and his friend, Maeve Wiley, set up a sex clinic at school to capitalise on his intuitive talent for sex advice.

 

Sex Education Season 2

Netflix announced that Sex Education will return with 8 new episodes in 2020, directed by Ben Taylor, Alice Seabright and Sophie Goodhart.

In Sex Education Season 2, Otis must master his newly-discovered sexual urges to progress with his girlfriend, Ola… while handling his strained relationship with Maeve.

Meanwhile, a Chlamydia outbreak hits Moordale Secondary, highlighting the need for better sex education and the new kids who are challenging the status quo at the school.

Here are some teasers of the plot in Sex Education Season 2 :

  • Maeve and Aimee’s BFF relationship is stronger than ever since Aimee ditched ‘the Untouchables’.

  • Eric notices his new-found self-confidence attracting unfamiliar kinds of attention.

  • Adam is at military school, still conflicted by his feelings for Eric.

  • Lily has hit pause on her sexual endeavours to focus on her creative talents and finds a new found friend in Ola.

  • Jackson is forced to flex his mental rather than physical muscle and is still buckling under the pressure from his parents to succeed.

  • Jean and Jakob’s relationship is discovered and they have to learn how to operate as a blended family. Jean forms an unlikely connection with Mrs Groff and a friendship between the two women begins to form.

 

Sex Education Season 2 Photos

Netflix also shared with us six photos from Season 2 of Sex Education :

 

Sex Education Season 2 Success Critical For Netflix

Netflix is counting on their original series like Sex Education to stave off the exodus when Disney Plus launches later today, and HBO Max comes online.

Sex Education Season 1 was a success for Netflix, and they are counting on Season 2 to keep subscribers from quitting their service.

Will it work? Or will subscribers decide that Disney+ at half the price of their Netflix subscription is a better bet? We will soon find out!

The new highly-affordable RM 17 Netflix mobile streaming plan is designed for individual users who consume content mainly on their smartphone or tablet.

For just RM 17 per month, the new Netflix Mobile plan allows you to watch all of Netflix’s content in standard definition (SD) on one smartphone or tablet at a time.

Netflix Mobile users will have access to both local and international content, as well as Parental Controls, Smart Downloads, adaptive UI and social media sharing.

With this new plan, Malaysians now have four different plans to choose from :

 

Netflix Mobile : How To Sign Up!

  1. Download the Netflix app on your smartphone or tablet, or visit www.netflix.com
  2. Register and log into the Netflix app, or your Netflix account.
  3. Select the Netflix Mobile plan for RM 17 per month.

 

Sharing Is A Better Option Than Netflix Mobile

If you have a friend or family member who wants to watch Netflix too, opt for the Standard plan at RM 42 per month. Both of you can watch better HD quality video at the same time, for just RM 21 per person, per month.

The best option though is to share the Premium plan with three other friends or family members. It lets all four of you watch up to 4K videos at the same time, for just RM 12.75 per month, per person!

Learn How To Share Netflix Titles On Instagram Stories!

DYKT you can share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories on both iPhone and Android smartphones? Here is how to do it on both platforms!

 

Sharing Netflix Titles On Instagram Stories

Netflix first announced the capability to share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories on 22 January 2019, but it was limited to their iPhone app.

That changed on 16 May 2019, when they finally released the same capability on their Android app.

Here is how you can share Netflix titles on Instagram Stories using these platforms :

Apple iPhone

The current Netflix iPhone app has an Instagram Stories share link. With this new feature, you can :

  1. Select a Netflix title you want to share
  2. Add the Netflix title’s custom art
  3. Share it to Instagram Stories, or to your friends as a direct message

The Instagram story remains visible for 24 hours, and provides a “Watch On Netflix” link back to the title page within the Netflix app.

“We’re always on the lookout for ways to make it easier for members to share the Netflix titles they’re obsessing about and help them discover something new to watch. We hope our members enjoy this new feature!” said Leigh Wong Netflix’s Head of Communications for Southeast Asia.

Android Smartphones

The latest Netflix Android app will have a new Instagram Stories share link.

  1. Select a Netflix title you want to share
  2. You can personalise the default art further to add captions, stickers, and more
  3. Share it to Instagram Stories, or to your friends as a direct message

“Sharing to Instagram Stories is now on all Android phones. You can share the shows and films you’re in love with directly from the Netflix app to your followers. Pop in a quiz for your friends to guess your favourite character from a show. Or a GIF to reflect your mood after a movie. It’s all part of what we’re doing to make it fun and easy to share what you’re watching, and help your friends find something new to watch.” said Netflix

 

Snapchat Sharing Coming Soon!

Netflix will also be adding Snapchat sharing to both iPhone and Android apps later this year.

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch… Choose Wisely!

Bandersnatch is a new interactive movie from the Black Mirror science fiction anthology. Released on Netflix, it allows you to determine the story of the movie!

Intriguing, isn’t it? Just like the choose your own adventure game books of yesteryears!

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch… Choose Wisely!

This Netflix interactive film is unlike anything you have ever seen before. Built around the same premise of choose your own adventure game books, it lets you determine how the story develops!

In this 80s-set, sometimes morally-compromising adventure, you alone are in charge of what happens next in Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. The journeys you go on are a direct result of your decisions.

There are choices to be made, challenges to overcome, dangers to encounter and, as always in life (and Black Mirror), consequences to be had.

Choosing wisely could lead to triumph while taking the wrong path could end in disaster — but who’s to say what’s “right” and “wrong,” anyway?

And fret not because once one experience comes to a close, you can — and should! — go back and make a new choice, alter the path of your story and maybe even change its outcome.

The Sony A9F MASTER Series 4K HDR OLED TV Revealed!

Sony today announced the new Sony A9F MASTER Series 4K HDR OLED TV. Let’s take a look at their product briefing, and a quick tour of the 65-inch and 55-inch Sony A9F MASTER Series models!

 

The Sony A9F MASTER Series

The Sony A9F is part of the MASTER Series  – a title Sony reserves exclusively for its highest picture quality TV models. Sony claims the MASTER Series provides picture quality approaching that of a professional-grade monitor in a motion picture production studio.

Having developed and followed a very strict set of product evaluation criteria by its most experienced picture quality engineers, Sony is confident that their flagship MASTER Series will deliver the highest quality picture possible in a home setting.

Picture Processor X1 Ultimate

The Sony A9F MASTER Series models come equipped with a newly-developed, next-generation Picture Processor X1 Ultimate. This processor can intelligently detect and analyse each object in the picture through Sony’s new Object-based Super Resolution for exceptional accuracy and detail.

The Object-based HDR remaster has also been updated, and now allows each object to be remastered individually for better depth, accurate texture and all-in-all more realistic picture.

Netflix-Calibrated Mode

In conjunction with Netflix, Sony is now introducing Netflix Calibrated Mode. This unique feature was specially developed to mirror the same picture quality as a studio evaluation master for television in order to preserve the artists’ creative vision and intent.

By accessing one simple menu setting, Netflix Calibrated Mode faithfully reproduces the visuals that help bring a story to life, and entertainment enthusiasts can now enjoy this experience when watching their favorite TV series, films, documentaries and more on Netflix.

CalMAN-Ready

The Sony A9F MASTER Series is ready for CalMAN, the industry-leading display calibration software from Portrait Displays. CalMAN is widely used by professionals as a tool to ensure quality control of the strict requirements demanded by content creators in broadcast, production, and post-production.

This features the CalMAN calibration software to be installed on a PC, a pattern generator, a colorimeter or spectrophotometer, and the CalMAN for BRAVIA app installed. But using it eliminates the struggle of maintaining the picture quality throughout the life of the TV.

Pixel Contrast Booster

The Sony A9F MASTER Series TV comes with the Pixel Contrast Booster, which is Sony’s original panel controller for OLED. It maximises the dynamic range by widening the area of color reproduction at high brightness. Pictures are enhanced with extra detail and texture.

Acoustic Surface Audio+

The Sony A9F TV boasts the new Acoustic Surface Audio+ technology.

[adrotate group=”2″]

Acoustic Surface was first introduced last year with the Sony A1 series followed by the Sony A8F this year. The improved Acoustic Surface Audio+ gets an additional actuator in the center of the screen and an extra subwoofer channel, which delivers  a 3.2 channel sound system.

The additional center actuator acts just like center speakers hidden behind an AT (acoustically transparent) screen which are found in movie theaters. With the three actuators and two subwoofers facing sideways, the Sony A9F creates a rich sound field that greatly enhances the viewing experience.

The Sony A9F asp has a TV Center Speaker Mode that allows the Acoustic Surface Audio+ to be used as the center speaker of a home theater system.

ASEAN Content Code for Video-On-Demand Revealed!

In a bid to self-regulate before their host countries start introducing a hodgepodge of different regulations, leading ASEAN video-on-demand services came together to introduce an ASEAN content code – the Subscription Video-on-Demand Industry Content Code. Let’s see what it’s all about!

 

The ASEAN Content Code for Video-On-Demand

Leading subscription video-on-demand services across ASEAN, including ASTRO, dimsum, Fox+, HOOQ, iflix, Netflix, tonton, TVB and The Walt Disney Company (Southeast Asia) have come together to announce the creation of a self-regulatory Subscription Video-on-Demand Industry Content Code to safeguard consumer interests.

The new ASEAN Content Code sets out principles to ensure that content offered on these participating platforms is authentic, free from hate speech, hate crimes, pornography, and other forms of inappropriate content. They also pledge their best efforts to provide consumer control features or other measures to ensure that content delivered is age-appropriate for relevant family members of the users in ASEAN.

“We share a mutual objective of putting consumer well-being at the heart of our services. This Code demonstrates our commitment to making sure that the consumer is able to make content viewing choices that are right for them and their families.”

This idea was first discussed at the ASEAN Telecom Regulators Council dialogue, held in Bangkok in September 2017. This forum brought together both regulators as well as industry in dialogue, to create pan-ASEAN solutions. Companies affirmed the value of this type of open dialogue and collaborative efforts towards addressing challenges.

[adrotate group=”1″]

The new ASEAN Content Code has been welcomed and supported by CASBAA, a regional industry association. The Companies look forward to working with other players in the SVOD space in ASEAN under the principles in the new ASEAN Content Code which will also serve to distinguish legitimate services from pirate sites.

“When a consumer goes to a pirate site for content, not only do they undermine legitimate businesses, but there are no checks on the content which means minors can very easily be exposed to pornography or graphic violence,” said Louis Boswell, CEO of CASBAA.
