Malaysian subscription operator Astro has launched its new Internet-enabled Ultra Plug & Play Box. The new device allows customers to self-install and gives access to Cloud Recording and Play from Start. An installation guide video comes with the box.
Azlin Arshad, Commercial Director of Astro says: “Our customers deserve a great viewing experience. We are committed to enhance their customer experience by simplifying the customer journey, making it easier for customers to purchase and enjoy our products.
The Ultra Plug & Play Box was designed based on customers’ feedback for a product that is easy to install and offers a continuous viewing experience without weather interruption. As the box is connected to the internet, and not the satellite, this will eliminate rain fade issues.
Once ordered, the new box and Astro SIM Card is couriered to customers who, while waiting, can activate their subscription on the Astro GO app and access the Astro GO pre-access service.
According to the company, the Ultra Plug & Play Box is best integrated with Astro & Broadband bundles for greater price advantage and the convenience of an all-in-one bill.
Customers with the Ultra Plug & Play Box can enjoy 4K UHD viewing, stream up to 65,000 videos on demand with Cloud Recording, the Play from Start feature, and enjoy the same live TV channels but now available through broadband connection. Stream top sporting events such as the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Premier League in 4K HDR quality; the latest Malay dramas Love Elsa and Ratu Ten Pin on Astro RIA, as well as the new Gossip Girl series and Korean drama series, The Devil Judge via On Demand.
