About myFreeview

The DTT Project

(Digital Terrestrial Television)

The DTT Project delivers more free TV channels in high quality sound and visuals, access to Electronic Program Guide (EPG), various subtitles and a HD quality viewing experience for your TV with digital broadcast. In the future, viewers also can access multiple interactive services such as shopping, video-on-demand, subscription and internet services.

Why do we need to make
the switch to digital broadcast?

The government is in the process of migrating the country's broadcasting system from analogue to full digital broadcast. To enjoy digital broadcast, you will need to connect your current TV and the UHF aerial to a DVB-T2 decoder. Alternatively, you can buy a new IDTV (Integrated Digital Television) that comes with a built-in digital tuner.

myFreeview Digital Broadcast

myFreeview is the brand name given for Malaysia's Free Digital Television DTT services, which offer Malaysia's most popular TV and radio channels free of charge, with no subscription fees.
