Pocketimes is Malaysia’s first Chinese-language web video platform.
Officially launched in November 2014, Pocketimes has within two short years evolved into a 24-hour platform offering a diverse range of international audiovisual content. Among its wealthy cache of content offerings are daily news briefs, first-hand key incident reports, market updates and live interviews that have managed to draw a massive following among the Malaysian viewing public. Pocketimes has not only registered an impressive viewership nearing four million in a single month, but has on several occasions made it to Malaysia Digital Association’s monthly top 30 infotainment sites.
The current affairs talk show every Wednesday night at 10.00 p.m. has now breached the 100-episode threshold, covering a very diverse range of topics from education, politics, social issues, finance to international hot topics, and boasting a powerful weekly line-up of notable guests in the likes of prominent politicians, industrial leaders, local artistes and celebrities, allowing the viewers to also take part in inspiring discussions on a number of topics that have significant implications to their day-to-day lives. The VJ Search 2016, in the meantime, is the country’s first ever online reality show in pursuit of the most eligible VJs in town. Pocketimes and Sinchew e-Paper joined hands to engage tertiary students and even mall visitors across the country, and managed to lure the participation of over 200 young Malaysians.
On 11 August 2016, Pocketimes will launch its all-new integrated video platform, providing more multi-faceted international content that will include entertainment and reality shows as well as quality movies from China.
Under the “Think Global, Act Local” principle, we are committed to the promotion of “online video marketing” concept, allowing Malaysian businesses to enjoy an unprecedented A&P experience that brings together the models of “TV advertising and “Internet marketing”.
