The new offerings double the selection of Fox Networks channels on Unifi TV to include Fox Life, Fox, FX, Fox Movies, Fox Action Movies, Fox Family Movies, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, BabyTV and Sky News.

Unifi TV executive vice president Jeremy Kung said the inclusion of the 10 new channels solidifies its partnership with FNGA and would strengthen service's content offerings with more sought after programmes. 

"With content that covers same-day series, award-winning programmes and more of fan favourite channels like Fox Life, Fox Movies and National Geographic, Unifi TV subscribers will have plenty of entertainment options for the perfect family and individual moments," he said in a press statement today. 

Among the programmes to be added are The Walking Dead, The Voice, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Masterchef, American Crime Story, Genius plus movies like Captain America: Civil War, Beauty And The Beast, and Power Rangers.

Fox Networks Group senior vice president (territory head of Malaysia & Singapore) Vineet Puri said their expanded partnership with TM was a landmark moment and cements FNGA’s commitment to providing Malaysian fans with access to high quality content.
