Media Prima’s Rev Media has claimed itself as the #1 digital publisher in Malaysia. Along with Astro, they are definitely the top two media companies here but is Media Prima bigger than Astro?
Before digitalization, both Media Prima and Astro were and are still monopolizing TV and radio networks. Media Pima also owns NSTP’s newspaper brands – New Straits Times, Berita Harian, and Harian Metro.
Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar’s Aurora Mulia Sdn Bhd is the largest shareholder of Media Prima, which also acquired the ownership of Utusan Malaysia and Kosmo! in 2019.
While both newspapers above along with The Malaysian Reserve are technically owned by a separate entity, now you understand why they are part of Rev’s media solutions.
With the need to go digital, Media Prima acquired Rev Asia for RM105 million in 2017. Rebranded to Rev Media later, they own digital publishers like SAYS.com while also functioning as the digital arm of Media Prima.
Today, there are more than 30 media brands under Rev Media, if we include those by Media Mulia. On the other hand, Astro has at least 58 media brands under its umbrella.
In terms of online reach, TV3 is the most followed TV network on Facebook in Malaysia, but Astro leads in the radio and magazine segment, while The Star is the most visited newspaper site here.
Interestingly, Astro leads in many categories while Rev Media only prevails in the lifestyle category, with SAYS being the most visited English lifestyle website in Malaysia.
The 25% stake acquisition of TanTanNews in 2019 is quite puzzling, as they already have another two Chinese social news sites – VIRALCHAM and Rojaklah, all operating and competing in the same segment.
Nevertheless, here’s the non-exhaustive list of digital media brands under the umbrella of Rev Media, grouped by English, Malay, Chinese, and News Networks in alphabetical order.
