Maxis has finally jumped on the iflix bandwagon and they are offering 2 months free subscription for both postpaid and Hotlink prepaid customers. If you love Korean series, they are also offering Viu, a video on demand service that lets you watch TV shows 8 hours after its original broadcast in South Korea.
Similar to what Celcom and Digi are offering, you get 2 months free trial worth RM20 for iflix which can be activated with no registration required. Make sure you’re on Maxis 3G/4G and disable WiFi before launching the iflix app. After the 2-month trial is over, you can subscribe at RM10/month which can be charged directly to your postpaid bill or deduct directly from your prepaid credit. It is the same story as well for Viu with 2 months free viewing and it will cost you RM10/month if you wish to continue.
If you’re hooked to iflix, it is probably better for you to sign up for an annual plan of RM96 which comes up to RM8/month. According to the FAQ, you’ll be charged automatically after 60 days but you will be reminded by SMS before the trial period is over. Note that there’s no free streaming so it is best to binge-watch over WiFi instead. So far there’s no free bundle and it would be good if they included this on their MaxisONE postpaid and Home broadband plans.
