If you notice, the Olympic channel 793 and 794 already ceased. So yeah, they have space now. 🤣🤣
Mmm, before the 3pm virtual media event, a pop up HD channel that named "Astro 25" is now on air on CH 100.
From what I see from the EPG, it's just a rojak channel showing those few-year-old TV shows, and it's not just cooking programmes. I saw got some small children cartoons, Malay TV series & movies, and even Battleground 2016 (whut?)...

Astro be like: Well, you guys always want a new TV channel, right? Now Astro give you "new channel" lor... If you still no happy then it's your problem.

Anyhow, let's see what Astro is gonna announce later at the 3pm virtual media press conference... Do post the live broadcast link here if you guys saw it.

Looks like they plan for Astro Wah Lai Toi transition back to TV due to they showing Battleground 2016.

But Primetime is going to air some of the FOX and FOX Life shows, making it 2 in 1 channel, and the replacement of FX is two live tv channels, which is Paramount Network and BBC Lifestyle.

Yeah, Astro is planning rebranding Hello Channel to PRIMEtime.

Yeah. Cuz it looks that TM wants to "totally cut ties" with Disney/Fox, so they remove all of their channels at once.
Astro aren't affected by this.
Don't forget, there are 2 Astro Go exclusive news channels, which is DW English and France 24.
Astro can just take one of the two channels to replace Sky News, if they wish to cease Sky News someday.

As for kids channel to substitute Baby TV, Astro can consider bringing in BBC CBeebies, since Astro has a an extended business partnership with BBC now (since the inclusion of BBC Earth and BBC Lifestyle into Astro platform and also the upcoming BBC First and BBC Brit onto its VOD platform).

Also BBC Player will launch on Astro at FY23 along with Discovery+.

Well, another event announcing Astro stuffs. Let's see what will they announce there.
My predictions:
- Astro announces Netflix stuffs, how to subscribe to NF through Astro, new packs
- About App Hub and how customers can access it
- Repeats about there is already 2 Ultra HD-ready OTT services (One is Disney+ Hotstar)
- GO Shop 11.11 offers, later come out 2 people from GO Shop then broadcasted live on Ch 118
90% sure they won't announce about these:
- Separate Astro GO subscription (It's Astro, what do you expect? There's already sooka)
- Astro GO resolution increase (due to most devices where they watch Astro GO are small screens)
- Co-licensing Premier League with RTM (If they did that means they will lose subscribers and most of Astro subscribers will migrate to myFreeview for PL)

According to IG comments about that one "dah dicuri" photo posted by netflixmy, most of Netflix subscribers unsubscribed Astro because of NF. Maybe attracting back previous subscribers?

According to reports, some fibre internet provider has TM as their backbone - and let's see how Astro announces it. Needs Astro subscription to subscribe to fibre broadband, or operating like TM to launch its own IPTV service through OTT (you know, like that unifi TV app which is hard-to-control)
*



My predictions of Astro Starter Pack big changing:
- Malay = Mustika + 75 base channels + Netflix
- Indian = Chakravarthy + 75 base channels + Netflix
- Chinese = Dynasty + 75 base channels + TVB Anywhere Plus + Netflix

Unless you still have satellite dish, you purchase Plug n Play box only and connect to your current satellite dish.

Not only this. Actually, the Astro AEC logo and all the branding stuffs is already present when Ch 338 broadcasted the 32nd Golden Melody Awards back at August.

I think all these Awards from Taiwan will use the AEC logo after all, with all the AEC branding, such as idents. Different than the normal Ch 306 feed.
Meanwhile, just found out that D+H has Chinese subs for newer movies such as Shang-Chi.

Not just Mandarin awards use the AEC logo. The next Hong Kong Film Awards on channel 338 will use the Wah Lai Toi logo with all Wah Lai Toi branding, such as idents.

Bot ype and installation are separate matter.

If based on ASTRO website, box type will depend on your packages mix.
Pay attention to what box is offered as you select you packages.

If you need satellite, then do not choose plug-&-play installation.

If you have satellite, you better chose Plug N Play to self-install it.
