MediaCorp TV12 Suria

Suria (朝阳频道) is a Malay-language channel featuring local and acquired Malay dramas and popular programmes. Suria has achieved recognition outside the Malay community, drawing media attention in Singapore and abroad.

History of Suria

MediaCorp TV12's Suria was launched on 30 January 2000, replacing Prime 12.

Suria - which means 'Sun' in Malay - transmits a blend of programmes to reflect the unique views, culture and lifestyles of the modern Malay Singaporean. As a dedicated Malay channel, Suria is the channel of choice of the Malay community in Singapore and aims to be the number one channel for the Malay community in the region. This is a channel that viewers can rely on, where they seek out programmes that provides latest news and information whilst serving the best entertainment programmes which reflect their lives, culture and heritage.

Suria, Sinar Bersama Anda

Suria originally used the tagline, "Suria, Sinaran Hidup Anda" which means Suria, 'Shine In Your Life' and Semakin Bersinar which means Shining Even Brighter. It then changes to a new tagline in 2008 Suria, Sinar Bersama Anda which means 'Suria, Shines With You' reflects the channel's desire to be the heartbeat of the Malay community, networking closely with them and understanding their needs and aspirations.

With a multicultural and international feel, Suria not only reflects the affluent, educated and new breed of the Singapore Malays, it also provides a window for those who wish to understand the Malay community .
