With an increase in television viewership and online shopping, partly due to the pandemic, Datuk AC Mizal – Malaysian artiste and entrepreneur – plans to launch his own broadcast network station called Suke TV.
In a virtual press conference on Sept 1, the founder and chairman of Suke TV said: “As a contributor to the entertainment industry for almost three decades, I wanted to play a part in making a change that would impact everyone for the better.
“My team and I have done a lot of work behind the scenes to think of how we can help lift the spirits of Malaysians from all backgrounds to emerge from this crisis, even stronger.
“We decided to embrace the chaos the pandemic has brought to the industry and turn it into opportunities instead.”
Suke TV, according to AC Mizal, is “a broadcast network created by Malaysians for Malaysians”.
The network will be available via MyTV in the last quarter of this year.
In a press statement, Suke TV is described as 24/7 broadcast network that supports both entertainment content – including drama, comedies and sports – as well as home shopping experiences.
On its e-commerce platform called Suke Shop, AC Mizal said: “I aim to help and support all Malaysian SMEs, celebrities, artists and businesses through the toughest time with a platform that they can rely on for all their business needs.
“We believe that online television home shopping is the future of shoppertainment.”
