2. You can now watch tonton on your TVs

These amazing features will be available on January 2018 onwards, so keep an eye out, yeah!
3. The next social media platform
Watching shows by ourselves can get pretty lonely after a while. Yes, we do get to enjoy our favourite dramas but completely cutting out social interaction can get super unhealthy, especially when we’re binge watching.
tonton decided to team up with Camment to turn the website into a more sociable one. Users will be able to interact with other users!
To top it all off, you can totally use voice recognition to control these functions. The future is here, ya’ll!

To advocate the 1Malaysia spirit, tonton is partnering with dimsum and Eros Now to bring more Chinese and Indian related content to viewers.
Eros Now will bring us more Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chobra, Amitabh Bachchan, etc.
Plus, thanks to dimsum’s additional shows from other oriental countries such as Thailand and South Korea, viewers can also enjoy the truly Asian part of “Malaysia truly Asia”.
5. Get tonton VIP for FREE!
Yes, 50% off is totally amazing, but guess what, if you’re subscribed to HyppTV, you get tonton VIP for free too. Just as long as you’re on the Aneka, Ruby or Jumbo packages, tonton will totally come along with them completely complimentary.
6. tonton VIP + 5GB internet data for only RM5
