With the new year fast approaching, TM Unifi home users can start enjoying unlimited TV and Movie streaming on any device and wherever you are. As reported earlier, Telekom Malaysia in collaboration with iflix is offering free 12 months subscription worth RM96.
The complimentary iflix service was supposed to roll out by mid-December but it took them awhile to sort out some technical issues. Well, it is worth the wait as the free streaming service requires no registration or sign in, allowing anyone in the household to streaming instantly.
How does iflix work?
Connect your device to your UniFi WiFi connection
Launch iflix and enjoy!
The iflix service will allow access for up to five devices per account and it supports up to two devices to stream concurrently. After your device is “registered”, you are still able to watch it on your mobile device on 4G or on other available WiFi connection. Want to watch iflix on the big screen? You can get yourself a Google Chromecast that plugs into your TV’s HDMI port.
There’s also offline viewing for those on Android and iOS devices, making this perfect for in-flight entertainment. However, it’s limited to 10 titles, movies or TV shows in any combination and it’ll live on your tablet/smartphone for seven days.
Currently, this special “promo” only applies for UniFi household customers but TM has been quoted to roll-out the same perks for Streamyx customers on 4Mbps and 8Mbps lines at a later date. Those on UniFi BIZ plans, sorry, you’re out of luck.
From what we gather, the free service is rolling out in stages, though most of us have managed to gain access in on our laptop and mobile phones. If you’re still unable to access iflix on your UniFi network, it might take awhile. In the scenario that you’re still prompted to login, an alternative method would be removing the iflix app and reinstalling it again on your mobile device.
It is a little patchy as we still couldn’t get iflix to work on our Mi Pad and an iPhone 6. Good luck with all your binge watching, make sure it doesn’t affect your productivity.
