Netflix Launches Bahasa Melayu User Interface

Today, Netflix launched its user interface (UI) in Bahasa Melayu. This enables members in Singapore to navigate the UI, read title names and synopses, and watch shows and movies with Bahasa Melayu subtitles and dubs.

“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.

The Bahasa Melayu UI option will allow members to switch their profile to  Bahasa Melayu from the Language option in the ‘Manage Profiles’ section on Netflix. The complete Netflix experience in Bahasa Melayu, from sign-up to search, rows, collections and payment, is available across all devices. Members can set up to five profiles in each account, and each profile can have its own language setting. Members anywhere in the world  have the option to switch their user interface to Bahasa Melayu.

In addition to existing Malay titles such as Paskal, Wira, Boboiboy 2 and Ejen Ali: The Movie, a few highly-anticipated Malay 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 Leongand the new romantic comedy movie from Adrian Teh, Pasal Kau!. Our Singaporean members’ favourite Netflix shows and films such as Stranger Things, The Witcher, Kingdom, The Umbrella Academy, will also be available with Bahasa Melayu subtitles.

Netflix continues to invest in improving members viewing experience with features like Smart Downloads, Parental Controls, and the Top 10 row.
