Online TV station launches in Malaysia
Do yourself a favor and spend a few minutes today with Cyberjaya TV in Kuala Lumpur to catch a glimpse of what lies ahead. Don’t get me wrong. The line-up is awful and the quality of this stuff is on a par with bad local access cable, but that’s not the point. I’m sitting here in Nashville watching TV in Malaysia. That alone is pretty cool. Technology will solve the quality problems and content will improve. According to an article in The Star Online, Cyberjaya.TV provides 100% local content that has global outlook, but with local relevance. The business model is advertiser supported, but the owners say they’re considering a subscriber model as well. I learned long ago, when cable TV first came on the scene, not to poo-poo delivery system innovations simply because the quality wasn’t there. Cyberjaya proves that, with a modest investment — in this case, $250,000 — anybody can get into the TV game.
