TonTon is the largest free video streaming service in Malaysia. They offer a similar service to Netflix or the UK’s BBC iPlayer.
Their catalogue is full of TonTon originals and also a lot of content from Asia. With plenty from Japan, Korea and China.
They have live TV channels, with local stations and international ones, and theme channels focused on Chinese, Korean, and kids content.
But what happens if you’re outside Malaysia? Well, you’ll hit a block with no access.
In Malaysia you can access it with a free membership. There’s also the possibility of upgrading to a VIP membership which will give you access to exclusive live events, ads free, and the option to download and watch later offline.
Outside Malaysia, you have none of these options.
If you love Asian dramas as I do, TonTon is one of the best options to stream your favourite shows and below I’ll be showing you how you can watch TonTon outside Malaysia from any country in the world.
What you need to watch TonTon overseas
As it frequently happens with these kinds of services, TonTon is only available in Malaysia, and in 2016 they started offering it in Singapore and Brunei as well.
But if you are from any other country in the world, you can’t access it.
There’s a simple workaround and if you use a VPN like ExpressVPN, you’ll be able to watch it from anywhere in the world.
Since a VPN will unblock the geo-restriction, you can watch all the content available at TonTon as if you were in Malaysia.
ExpressVPN is one of the best options because it’s easy to use and it has lightning fast speeds, which is essential when you are streaming video – especially if you’re far away like in the US or UK for example.
They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee in case you don’t like the service.

How to watch TonTon outside Malaysia
Most VPN services work the same, so following this guide in which I’m using ExpressVPN will be useful for your regardless of the service you choose.
The first thing to do is sign up for a VPN service. I’ve been using ExpressVPN and recommend them, but you are free to choose.
It’s worth remembering that it’s 49% cheaper when you take their annual package so if you’re going to be out of Malaysia for some time, it’s a way of saving some serious cash.
Now, you need to download and install the VPN app on the devices you want to watch on. You’ll find all the available versions for the different OS under the ‘Products’ section of the ExpressVPN websites.
Alternatively, search your regular app store for ‘ExpressVPN’ and install directly from there.
With the app already installed, you must log in with the account details you created on step 1.
Once you logged, in order to start enjoying TonTon, you need to search for ‘Malaysia‘ in the search location box, and finally press Connect.
Whether you’re on Windows, Android, or Apple iOS, the steps are all the same.
Now, you’re able to watch all the content as if you were living in Malaysia wherever you are in the world.
Where can I watch with a VPN?
From anywhere! That’s the beauty of the VPN!
It doesn’t matter if you’re in Brazil, Canada, the UK or somewhere else.
You can access and watch TonTon from any place outside Malaysia without restrictions because the VPN conceals your real location.

How does a VPN work?
A VPN is a virtual private network that protects your privacy online by concealing your location and disguising it as another one.
It acts as an intermediate between the Internet and your devices. Since its primary goal is to protect your online activity, giving you access to streaming services that have geo-blocking is a side effect. A perfect one if you want to watch TonTon overseas.
Of course, VPN services require payment, but the fee is cheap, and you don’t need to pay expensive cable subscriptions anymore.
Is using a VPN legal?
Yes, it’s a totally legal service.
As I said previously, it’s a convenient tool to keep your privacy online and to protect your devices from different kind of attacks around the web.
So as well as allowing you to watch TonTon anywhere you’ll also have the benefit of securing your internet connection at the same time.
Tonton is one of the biggest streaming services in Asia, very similar to Netflix. It’s from Malaysia, and it’s becoming very popular.
They focus on Asian content mostly from Malaysia, Japan, Korea, and China.
Everything is cool, but sadly it isn’t available outside Malaysia.
The only way to access it from any other country in the world is by using a VPN like ExpressVPN.
It’s a legal service, easy to use, with fast speeds, and it will unblock TonTon, allowing you to watch it from anywhere!
You only need to subscribe to a VPN, get the app in your devices, choose Malaysia as your location, and start enjoying all the Asian content that’s waiting for you at TonTon.
