Media & Advertising

Malaysia’s media scene is dominated by cross-platform conglomerates such as Media Premia, which operates the country’s most popular free TV channels and has a commanding presence in print, radio and online as well. Other groups include Star Publications, Sin Chew Media and the Redberry Media Group. Meanwhile Astro Holdings, which relisted on the KL bourse in 2012, dominates the pay-TV sector and owns various radio and magazine outfits. Print media continues to command the largest share of adex, at 42%, although this has slipped slightly with the growth of pay-TV and the internet.
