Malaysia's Astro direct-to-home (DTH) TV platform is to carry a new entertainment channel from Rewind Networks called HITS from 16 November 2014.

The satellite channel, which will be available with Bahasa Malaysia and Simplified Chinese subtitles, is already available in Rewind's home nation of Singapore, as well as Indonesia and the Philippines.

"Astro is committed to providing the best-in-class entertainment to our subscribers. HITS HD will give our customers the chance to reconnect with so many of their best loved shows like Mork & Mindy and The Cosby Show. We also anticipate that this great content will find a new audience amongst our younger viewers making HITS truly a channel for the whole family. Viewers will also be pleased that we are extending this great experience beyond the home with the channel and catch-up episodes being available on Astro on the go," said Agnes Rozario, VP content group, Astro.

Rewind Networks' founder and CEO Avi Himatsinghani said: "We are so proud that Astro subscribers will now have a chance to watch their most loved TV shows for the first time in HD quality. Curated with Asian viewers in mind we hope that our selection of top rated, multi-award winning and iconic shows from the leading Hollywood studios will make this channel a favourite amongst Malaysian audiences."
