Following the announcement by Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin of a two-week nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of the new coronavirus, pay TV operator Astro has announced complimentary access to a range of content, including sport and movies.
Following a similar move by a number of European operators, all Astro customers can enjoy complimentary viewing of all movie channels on Astro and Astro GO. They include HBO, FOX Movies, Celestial Movies, tvN Movies, BollyOne and more.
Meanwhile, Astro is offering offering more content choices for its Sports Pack customers with complimentary viewing of ALL Astro channels until 30 April 2020.
Lee Choong Khay, Head of Sports at Astro said, “The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented where many events including global sporting events have been postponed by their organisers. We had earlier announced that our loyal Sports Pack customers will enjoy UEFA Euro 2020 for free. We are committed to this when the tournament kicks off on the new dates of 11 June to 11 July 2021.”
“As the world goes through these challenging times to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, Astro is committed to keep serving sports fans in Malaysia. We are working closely with our sports content partners to ensure we continue to deliver to our customers.”
