WANT TO WATCH MALAYSIAN TV CHANNELS LIVE ON PC, AND ARE LOOKING FOR ANY WEB SITE THAT LETS YOU DO SO FREE? As Podlog pointed out recently: "Sure, you might be sitting at a desk and not really thinking about all the malaysian tv programms especially for those who live in overseas, why wouldn't you want to watch Malaysian TV Channels on your computer? Your LCD almost certainly has better resolution than your TV, and when you're right in front of it, with two decent speakers (or more), it can be a pretty good way to watch a show or two.Here are four ways to get Malaysian TV channels on your computer:
"2) vvttv.com.my - using sopcast p2p techology. By the way you just have to download the VTTV web player plugin and then go to the channels section.
3) Radio Televison Malaysia (RTM) - Goverment TV stations broadcasting TV1 and TV2 channels.
4) um.com.my - brings you not olny malaysian channels but other top channels in the world such as ESPN, BBC , Music TV..."
Digital is a catchword in Malaysia at the moment, a country that has become an international player in everything from virtual education to satellite TV. The first digital television service in Malaysia was launched by satellite based pay-TV operator ASTRO in 1996. Starting from September 2006, the aforementioned Malaysian national broadcaster RTM began its trial Digital Terestrial Digital Television (DDTV) service for six months to 2000 selected households in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur and surrounding areas. From the trial service, RTM intends to access viewers' response of the new service.
The trial DDTV service offered the current 2 analogue TV channels (i.e. RTM1 and RTM2) in digital, and 2 new digital-only channels, namely RTMi (covering drama, music, news/current affairs and sports) and Music Active (all music). RTMi will be broadcasting from 7pm to midnight daily while Music Active will be from 9am to midnight. Also provided under the service are seven FM radio stations in digital audio and interactive services. Nationwide implementation is planned to begin by the year 2007 or 2008. All the above digital television services are in standard definition and RTM will initiate HDTV trials by 2009. Currently there are no announced plans by either ASTRO or Media Prima for HDTV services. The Malaysian government has proposed to shut down all analogue television services in the country by the year 2015, planned to begin in 2008.
TV9 is a Malaysian private-owned television station which started transmission on April 22, 2006. This free-to-air television station is owned fully by Media Prima Berhad. Despite its focus mainly on Malay programming (for example Pak Pandir Moden, episode 10 of which you can watch online here, Pendekah 5, and so on), the station also airs Chinese movies (with Malay subtitles) and Japanese series (dubbed in Malay) programmes on a weekly basis. English programmes such as Crocodile Hunter, Mutant X, Jeff Corwin Experience, Guinness World Records are also currently aired with Malay subtitles. During the 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. airtime block daily, the station airs children's shows such as Nickelodeon cartoons like Dora the Explorer, Blue's Clues and more which are all dubbed in Malay.
TV9 now airs its own news segment called Berita TV9 (literally: TV9 News) since January 1, 2007 at 8:00pm. For eight months since it started transmission, "Edisi 7" was broadcasted, courtesy of ntv7. Liputan 9 (Coverage 9) was Channel 9's primetime news programme when it was in transmission, courtesy of Bernama. The first 30-minute version of Warta Perdana, courtesy of RTM1 was also aired during a few months before the transmission ended. The newsreaders of Berita TV9 includes Zuhairah Mustafa Al-Husin, Abu Talib Husin, Syed Mohammad Khair Syed Hussein, Nurazura Abu Samah, Syafinaz Yunus, Amin Hayat Abdul Rahim and Nona Julia Hashim. They were chosen from over 5000 people who auditioned. The TV9 News is brought live from Studio C in Sri Pentas, Bandar Utama.
As of 2007, Media Prima is the biggest media group in Malaysia, owning all main private television stations and controlling approximately 54% of Malaysia television viewership. Astro controls a market share of roughly 29%, and RTM 17%.
As owner of the New Straits Times Press (NSTP), Media Prima also controls English newspapers like the New Straits Times and the Malay Mail, as well as Malay newspapers like the Berita Harian.
It is true that the Universiti Tun Abdul Razek (UTAR) is the oldest virtual university in Malaysia -- however, to my mind it seems that the Open University Malaysia (OUM) is the most popular at the moment. Open University Malaysia or OUM is the seventh Malaysian private university opened in Malaysia, and is owned somewhat paradoxically by a consortium of 11 Malaysian public universities. As most Malaysians will know, the main campus is located on Jalan Tun Ismail, in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Nonetheless, this being a virtual university, it doesn't matter where this university is physically located, in a "bricks and mortar" sense. .

AS IN THE REAL WORLD, ONLINE CHINA IS HUGE. As the Guardian newspaper from Britain recently posed: "The world's most popular blog? Lao Xu, written by the actor and director Xu Jinglei, which boasts 137 million visitors. The biggest distributor of online video? Tudou, which claims to have overtaken YouTube with over 1bn megabytes of data transfers every day. Then there is Baidu, which has trounced Google in the Mandarin search engine market, and Alibaba, whose boss Jack Ma is a national hero for humbling eBay and taking over Yahoo's operations in China. It is also only the second Internet-driven open university in Malaysia. The Gerakan Education Foundation -- later renamed Wawasan Education Foundation (WEF) -- in August 2002 was established as a tax-exempt charitable foundation to promote lifelong education to the public. Eight experts in open and distance learning were commissioned to prepare a detailed proposal for the establishment of an Open and Virtual University of Malaysia (OVUM). The report was submitted to the foundation in 2003.
Wawasan Open University (WOU) opened its door on 22nd January 2007 with an initial offering of 11 undergraduate degree programmes under three faculties - the science and technology, business administration and foundation studies. Courses include degrees in information systems, computing science & artificial intelligence, business information systems, accounting and sales & marketing. The cost of an undergraduate programme is about RM16,000.
680 students had already enrolled with the university, which has four study centers located in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Ipoh and Johor Baru.
Wasawan Open University is now up and online and offers programmes in three Schools (Science and Technology, Business and Administration, and Foundation Studies.) Some of the courses covered are Bachelor of Technology in Electronic Commerce, Bachelor of Business in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and Bachelor of Business in Sales and Marketing.
