Viacom is expanding in Asia, with the launch of children's channel Nick Jr and music channel MTVN HD in Singapore and Malaysia.

The channels will be available on StarHub in Singapore on 18 May, and Telekom Malaysia Berhad's HyppTV in Malaysia on 1 June.

Nick Jr will be available on StarHub TV's Kids Basic Upsize Group, while MTVN HD will be available to existing StarHub TV's Entertainment Basic Group customers who are subscribed to the Basic HD Upsize group.

Telekom Malaysia will offer the two channels a la carte to its subscribers on HyppTV, Malaysia's newest pay TV service.

“The launch of Nick Jr and MTVN HD in Asia shows our commitment to deliver high-quality programming to our audiences in Asia,” said Indra Suharjono, executive VP and managing director at Viacom International Media Networks North and Southeast Asia.

The services will roll out to the rest of Southeast Asia in due course.
