PETALING JAYA: Internet TV service iflix is going HD – all new shows published on the platform will now be available in high definition. 

According to Ash Crick, iflix global director of labs, data intelligence and content technology, all shows released since Jan 24 are in HD and other shows will receive the HD updates over time.  

At the moment however, the HD quality is only limited to 720p which is technically high-definition though not in the highest FullHD 1080p quality – Crick said that 1080p support will eventually be added once the company is confident that Malaysians will be able to get a smooth, uninterrupted experience.  

The update to high definition includes recent shows like The Magicians and Emerald City but also includes older but popular shows and movies like The Flash, Avatar, Titanic and others.  

It's not just the picture that has had an upgrade, however – according to iflix, the audio quality has been doubled as well, although 5.1 surround sound audio is not yet supported.  

The subscription price of RM10 per month for iflix in Malaysia remains the same despite the HD update.
