Qalbox, the new global subscription video on demand (SVOD) streaming service from Bitsmedia, developer of Muslim Pro, has officially launched.

Accessible through the Muslim Pro app, Qalbox features diverse content that spans across America, Europe, Middle East and Asia through this Muslim-focused platform.

Nik Emir Din, Co-CEO of Bitsmedia, said, “As the world’s leading Muslim lifestyle mobile app, we’ve seen how Muslim consumers are widely under-served, and we hope to close this gap with Qalbox. Our varied content not only represents the diverse Muslim community, it also entertains users with a variety of global titles. We hope Malaysian audiences will enjoy this diverse catalogue, which depicts the Muslim experience from around the world.”

“Muslim representation in media is important, and so is empowering Muslim storytellers with a platform to tell their own stories. Given our global user base, we’re thrilled to be able to help shine a light on locally produced Malaysian shows with audiences all over the world and we hope to introduce even more Malaysian productions in the future.”

Apart from acquiring global content, Qalbox will produce its own original programming. The I Am Muslim series, which premiered at Qalbox’s official launch in Kuala Lumpur, is the first in its slate of original releases. The short docu-series explores the faith and lives of a group of Muslim individuals from around the world.

Local viewers will have access to variety of Muslim-friendly content including stand-up comedy Maz Jobrani: Pandemic Warrior (Highpoint Productions), television series Little Mosque on the Prairie (Westwind Pictures), Emmy-nominated children’s animation series Burka Avenger (Unicorn Black Studios) as well as Quranic recitations and supplications (du’a).

In celebration of its official launch, users can get Qalbox at a promotional price of RM 4.90 per month or an annual subscription plan of RM 49.90 per year for a limited time only. Qalbox is available for viewing on mobile, web app, tablets and SMART TV Chromecasting.
