DETV (Malaysian IPTV service)

eTV, formerly known as DETV, is a Malaysian IPTV based Pay TV service owned by DE Multimedia Sdn. Bhd., a joint venture founded by REDtone International Bhd and Zhong Nan Enterprise (M) Bhd. It was officially been launched on 26th Jan 2010.[1] Many of its channels are sourced from mainland China and Taiwan.

As of 2011, the service was renamed eTV.

Technology

eTV is purely an IPTV-based service, it requires an internet connection to be able to receive its content. Currently the service uses decoders manufactured by Beijing Transvideo Digital Technology Co., Ltd.. The decoder is capable of connecting to the internet either wirelessly using Wi-Fi or over a wired ethernet connection. It offers component video, composite video and S-video output as well as two channel stereo sound output. Also present is a USB port which is currently unused.

Channels

Currently eTV offers the following channels.[2][2] Timeshifting is available for all channels and the service also offers the ability to watch any program aired within a 72 hour period of airing.[2] Unlike other providers in Malaysia, eTV is much more lenient in its programming content guideline.[3]

Video on Demand

eTV also offers a comprehensive library of on-demand programming. Additionally all aired programs are also stored on the company's servers and is freely accessible for up to 72 hours after it has aired, a standard function provided by most IPTV providers.[4]
