Netflix has launched its user interface (UI) in Bahasa Melayu that enables members in Malaysia to navigate the UI, read title names and synopses, and also watch shows and movies with Bahasa Melayu subtitles and dubs.

“Netflix believes in giving members control over their entire entertainment experience and surely will improve their viewing experience and better suit Malaysians who prefer consuming Netflix in their national language,” said a Netflix spokesperson in a Zoom meeting on “Netflix Unveils New Feature For Malaysia”.

“The Bahasa Melayu UI option will give families more flexibility as members will be able to switch their profile to Bahasa Melayu from the language option that has up to 30 languages in the ‘Manage Profile’ section on their devices,” he added.

The complete Netflix experience in Bahasa Melayu, from sign-up to search rows, collections and payment, is available across all platforms including on phones, tablets, desktops, TV, even PlayStations.

The spokesman said that Netflix members can set up to five profiles in each account, and each profile can have its own language setting and even Netflix members outside of Malaysia will also have the option to switch their user interface to Bahasa Melayu.

Netflix also aims to bring Malaysian stories to a global audience and hence, on Sept 16, users will be able to watch the new show conducted by Dr Jason Leong: Hashtag Blessed, he added.
