Cookie TV brings Top-notch Global Movies and TV Channels to Myanmar via Innovative Mobile App-based Service

Thousands of movies from Hollywood and Korea with both Myanmar and English subtitles, and the world’s most renowned international channels with a catch-up service

are ready to entertain, educate and inspire Myanmar audiences in January.

YANGON, 10th January 2019 – Cookie TV today launched its mobile TV that streams live TV and movies on demand.

Cookie TV is a mobile TV that allows the viewer to watch live TV and movies on demand anytime and anywhere.

Our monthly subscription-based Live TV plans offer not only Myanmar local channels, but also Cookie TV’s own barker channel as well as world’s renowned channels, ranging from world news, entertainment, sports to cartoon for children. Offering Myanmar’s first catch-up service to all TV subscribers for free, Cookie TV viewers can watch missed shows or favourite shows again, on the go.

Cookie TV’s Movies service introduces two ways to enjoy movies – Pay Per Movie and Movie Album. With Pay Per Movie, which is transaction-based, users can enjoy Hollywood’s latest movies with Myanmar and English subtitles on Cookie TV earlier than any streaming service platform in Myanmar. Korean TV drama series recently have been added to the mix, and Myanmar, Chinese, Indian and other regional contents will be added in the near future.

Movie Album is a monthly subscription plan that gives unlimited access to Hollywood’s selected titles. It can be purchased as a stand-alone item or as an add-on item with a TV plan for a discounted price.

Cookie TV has already inked partnerships with all the Hollywood major studios such as Disney, Warner Bros, NBC Universal, 20th Century Fox, Paramount, Sony, Lionsgate for movies; with HBO, Warner TV, Fox Sports, DreamWorks and National Geographic channels.

U Wyne Chit Oo, Marketing Director of Cookie TV said, “We aim to bring premium international content, including popular Hollywood and Korean productions, to the people of Myanmar through an affordable and convenient app-based streaming service. From movies, TV programs, news and variety shows, we have compelling content for the whole family that will entertain, educate and inspire audiences nationwide. Cookie TV is the mobile application in the country that helps people enjoy the latest released movies at the earliest possible times. Plus, with the catch-up service, which allows the app users to catch up or re-watch their favourite TV programs within one week, meaning that they will not miss a single movie or episode again!”

CEO of HBO Asia, Mr. Jonathan Spink, says, “We are delighted to partner with Cookie TV to provide viewers in Myanmar the ability to stream the best Hollywood movies and award-winning HBO Original content from Asia and the U.S. that are available on all our HBO branded channels, live, anytime, anywhere.”

 A congratulatory message from Warner Bros runs as follows as well:

“Warner Bros. is pleased to be partnering with Cookie TV to provide users in Myanmar access to our highly-acclaimed line up of blockbuster movies and shows, which they can now enjoy on-demand wherever they are, throughout the day. All around the world, we work with innovative platforms to bring exclusive premium content to digital-first audiences and through this win-win collaboration, Myanmar audiences will get to enjoy our iconic franchises. We would like to congratulate Cookie TV on their successful launch to offer even more compelling programming for avid fans of movies and shows to experience on their devices,” said Clarence Lo, Vice President, Warner Home Entertainment.

Customers can sign up via Facebook. In celebration of the launch, users who download and sign up will have free access to live TV and movies services, equivalent to a 10,000 Kyat value.
