Jumboplay was a video game game portal and distributor. Based in South East Asia and launch in 2006, it forms partnership with major player in the region, namely TM Net, the largest ISP in Malaysia and Sony Picture Entertainment through Animax and AXN.

Jumboplay was the first to adopt subscription based Games on Demand for the region. Utilizing Digital Rights Management(DRM) technology, games were available for download and play by all subscriber to the service. Unlike standard digital distribution, Jumboplay applies Streaming technology during distribution, allowing users to begin play without needing to download the complete game.

Jumboplay has since stopped its service in 2009 due to low demand for subscription-based service in this region, especially for online-based streaming contenta and its inability to offer latest and greatest titles from top content producers.
