PETALING JAYA: Fans of Asian shows can now catch their favourite series on Huawei Video, following a partnership between dimsum entertainment and Huawei.
Video-on-demand service dimsum entertainment has partnered with the electronics giant to offer its content via Huawei Video, which is available on Huawei phones, including the flagship P40 range.
“We are thrilled to be one of the first video-on-demand services on board Huawei Video for Malaysia and Singapore, ” said dimsum entertainment chief marketing officer Lam Swee Kim.
“With this, dimsum entertainment will be able to reach out to a larger mobile audience. The content offered will include dramas, movies and anime from Thailand, China, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia and Singapore.”
Huawei Asia-Pacific consumer cloud service director Shane Shanxuefeng said he is confident that the partnership will benefit Huawei users by offering them more on-trend Asia video stories, adding that Huawei Video was first rolled out in Asia-Pacific in March.
Kim said from a business perspective, the partnership is timely and strategic as a lot of viewers are already watching dimsum entertainment shows through Huawei devices.
Titles curated for Huawei Video include Japanese rom-com series An Incurable Case Of Love as well as trending Chinese drama series Love Of Thousand Years, Ancient Detective and The Twin Flower Legend.
More shows are on the way, including highly anticipated series Bad Genius The Series, Fighting Youth, My Himalayan Embrace and Let’s Go Crazy On Live!.
