Top 10 entertainment news portals in Malaysia

Which are the popular entertainment portals or news sites in Malaysia? Targeting Malay Millennials or ‘Malaynnials’, Astro Gempak is the most visited entertainment website in Malaysia.

In fact, Gempak is the most visited digital publisher in Malaysia, right after general news sites like Malaysiakini, The Star, Malay Mail, etc. Entertainment sells, period.

If you don’t already know, Gempak has consolidated a couple of media brands under its portal, namely Rojak Daily, Drebar, Chingu 친구, etc.

We are not too sure whether it is a good idea to combine various vertical brands under one portal, the individual brands will lose some leverage but yes, the website visits are consolidated.

At the time of writing, Drebar – the automotive media brand, seems to be no longer active since November 2021. Competition is stiff though with these automotive media brands around.

Nevertheless, Astro is going strong in the entertainment segment as another two Chinese media brands – XUAN (includes XUAN Play, XUAN TV) and GOXUAN are also in the top 10 list.

Competing big media groups are not going to give this segment to Astro on a plate, with mStar (by Star Media Group) and OHBULAN! (by Rev Media) ranked 4th and 5th respectively.

Is any media conglomerate considering independently-owned entertainment media like ROTIKAYA (2nd, with the most FB followers too) and Oh My Media (6th) to give Astro a run for their money?

Here are the top 10 most popular entertainment websites in Malaysia, scroll down towards the end of this article for rankings by Facebook followers, Instagram followers, YouTube subscribers.
