The company initially offered 40 channels from content providers worldwide.

History

MiTV was officially launched on September 5th, 2005 by Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at the Manhattan Ballroom in Berjaya Times Square Hotel & Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

One of MiTV's distinguishing traits is that it utilises an internet protocol over UHF-based transmission system. Subscribers are required to install a standard UHF television antenna as opposed to a satellite dish to receive broadcasts. MiTV is therefore able to broadcast even during inclement weather

MiTV is largely owned by Tan Sri Vincent Tan, the president of the Berjaya Group.

On 31 October 2006, the company announced a restructuring that included suspension of all marketing and new subscription activities. In addition, approximately 66% of the companies workforce was retrenched[1].

MiTV also owns a mobile phone operator called U Mobile.
