Access will be provided to customers on Telenor's 5Mbps, 10Mbps and 15Mbps broadband plans at no additional cost, giving customers the ability to consume thousands of hours of movies, TV shows and original programming.

Myanmar subtitles are available in both Zawgyi and Unicode and the content selection and marketing will be tailored to local audiences.

The iflix service is now available to over 1 billion customers throughout Asia and the MEA, with a focus on emerging markets.

In Asia-Pacific iflix is currently available in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Brunei, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bangladesh and Nepal.

“Data demand is growing in Myanmar and people especially in major cities are accessing educational and entertainment content online more,” Telenor Myanmar head of fixed broadband and wholesale Tan Sian Tuang said.

“With Telenor’s broadband service, currently available in Yangon and Taunggyi, our customers can enjoy most consistent experience without worrying for data. Enriching our customers’ digital lives is a key part of our focus in Myanmar, and the partnership with iflix complements our efforts in delivering digital entertainment services that our users love.”
