Netflix has inked a distribution deal with Singapore’s MediaCorp, enabling access to more than 50 titles in the SVOD pioneer’s service offerings in Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei.
Dubbed “Singapore, Now Streaming,” the Netflix platform will offer content in August, including Best of The Noose, The Wedding Game, The Golden Pillow, Growing Up and Vettai in English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil.
“As a Singaporean growing up with a lot of these classic shows and films, I am incredibly excited to enrich the Netflix catalog with these best-in-class Singaporean stories that are made in Singapore, by Singaporeans, for Singaporeans, to celebrate this National Day (Aug. 9),” Raphael Phang, manager of content acquisition at Netflix, said in a statement.
Jesslyn Wong, VP of content distribution at Mediacorp, said the partnership with Netflix underscores the value of content collaborations.
“We are confident that Netflix users will be captivated by our curation of Singaporean tales told by Singaporean talent, and hope this taste of our uniquely local flavors will encourage new and existing audiences to explore the extensive array of wonderful work we have to offer,” Wong said.
