From today, Netflix users will be able to navigate the site with the user interface in Behasa Melayu, the streaming entertainment giant has announced.
That means you’ll be able to have the UI, title names and synopses in Behasa Melayu, as well as watch shows and movies with Bahasa Melayu subs and dubs. The option is available across the site, including sign-up, search, and payments, as well as across all devices.
“Netflix believes in giving members control over their entire entertainment experience, and we are delighted that they are now able to choose to enjoy Netflix in Bahasa Melayu. This surely will improve their viewing experience and better suit Singaporeans who prefer consuming Netflix in their national language,” said a Netflix spokesperson.
Netflix members can chose to switch their profile to Bahasa Melayu from the Language option in the “Manage Profiles” section. Don’t forget that each member can have their own language setting.
And that’s not all. In addition to existing Malay titles such as Paskal, Wira, Boboiboy 2 and Ejen Ali: The Movie, a few alay titles coming soon on Netflix include new stand-up special Dr. Jason Leong: Hashtag Blessed by Malaysia’s very own doctor-turned-comedian Dr Jason Leong, and the new
romantic comedy movie from Adrian Teh, Pasal Kau!.
