Affordable streaming: Digi head of postpaid & digital services Praveen Rajan said subscribers will be able to enjoy video streaming on mobile with Video Freedom at an affordable rate.

Video streaming on mobile devices is on the rise but the cost of data has always been a concern for most users.

With this in mind, Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd is introducing a “worry-free” video streaming service called Video Freedom.

Video Freedom allows users to stream video content from its partner platforms – YouTube, HyppTV, Tonton, iFlix, Astro on the Go, Viu, Dailymotion – without eating into their monthly data quota.

It's available in two options — an hourly pass priced at RM1 and daily pass at RM5 for 24 hours.

To purchase the pass, users will have to download the MyDigi app which is available on Google Play store and Apple App Store.

Users also need to have an active Digi Internet plan be it for prepaid or postpaid to enjoy the offer.

Digi head of postpaid and digital services Praveen Rajan said that three out of four Malaysians are watching some kind of video every week. However, most users tend to stream via WiFi due to the exorbitant cost of mobile data.

However, Digi will be enforcing its fair usage policy – users will be limited to a maximum of 3GB for the hourly pass and 10GB for the daily pass.

“The fair usage policy is meant to serve the majority of customers and it’s more than what we have ever offered before,” said Praveen.

Once users have fully utilised the data allocation, they have to repurchase the pass (at the same rate) to continue.

As the event the telco also said that its LTE network now covers 72% of the population. The coverage for the higher speed LTE-Advanced stands at 31%.
