Spotify launches in India with their hand in music from popular Bollywood movies. Bollywood music from Indian music label T-Series for example, are highly popular in India. Being a country of diverse culture, music in particular would change depending from city to city. For this, Spotify will have playlists curated by Indian music experts.
With news of Spotify launching in India, it got me thinking. I remember a time before when I lived without knowing of Spotify’s existence. When I first got into using it, I can without a doubt say that it changed my life. No more searching on dodgy websites for the music I wanted on my phone. Or trying to download a YouTube video through various means. Back in 2013 I decided to get Spotify premium and I haven’t looked back since.
That being said, I thought of some other digital services that I want to see adapted to the Malaysian market because I believe the people want it. Or maybe it’s just me.
I mean, Hulu is a behemoth in the streaming world. Alongside their competitor Netflix, it almost seems unnecessary but Hulu actually has Live TV so you can watch the latest Football games or Basketball or just watch news live.
2. Netlfix’s Global Collection:
Don’t get me wrong, Netlfix Malaysia is great. It’s got most of the latest Netflix Originals and Original movies but sometimes just going through over and over the same choices gets tiring. Making Netflix’s whole entire database would be pretty hectic, but I think I finally will be able to watch something that isn’t How I Met Your Mother again.
3. Amazon Prime:
I was in India when Amazon launched there, and I had the pleasure to use Amazon Prime. And wow. The speed of when I would order something and the time it would take to arrive on my doorstep was incredible. Depending on the item, as well as the amount you’re willing to pay for shipping you could have it delivered the very next day. Not knocking our Lazada down in anyway, but sometimes the delivery times are too damn long.
And that’s my list of what I think Malaysia could come to benefit if they did indeed have plans to adopt any of these services. Let me know in the comments below what you think or what services you’d like to see coming soon!
