I notice astro put ads on ONE HD channel.
Just now watching there is susu tin, kfc, etc ads & after that drama continue.

If ONE HD channel take ads break.
There is some popup like Now Back( drama title).

On the other news, Channel [V] (HD) and Fox Crime (HD) is dropped out of unifiTV lineup by 1st June. Your move, astro. whistling.gif

Astro never bother to get music HD channel.
If you look on what astro offer now is local & sports content & put more ads to that channel.

Astro is sightly improving at this point and started offering World Cup on VR.
What an amazing time we live in. (Well, almost. But we're getting close.)

EDIT: Also, I like how Astro is also offering its own Ramadan pop-up channel this year.
*
Pakcik live in kampung will not care about that. Since many people here don't have internet laju berdesup to stream VR content.

Ramadan HD is recycle content from Ria, Citra, Warna&(very much about malay channel content).

The difference is Ramadan HD can be access to all astro family pack subscriber(that not langgan HD servis).
So, this customer can enjoy Warna program for free(old Warna channel shows).

ooh like that...
didn't know...

let's wait for more details..

TV1 only 1 channel. Astro will have 2 dedicated HD channel.
Maybe RTM will air in TV1 & TV2. Good la for people that only have area tulang ikan.

Want HD quality. Go waste RM100 for astro.
Or watch free in HD quality in Astro Arena HD.
Arena HD also can be watch free without login astro go free.
The channel also can be watch in Singapore. If you download astro go app in Singapore. Yes. Astro Arena also can be stream for free in that country. smile.gif

No No..

they would say Many Malaysian households still using CRT TV  cool2.gif  devil.gif

More like astro cannot cover the expensive broadcast for 4K.
They also need to supply new 4K decorder(which might cost RM1000 for that). Singapore got Fifa World Cup in 4K? hmm.gif

RTM coverage this year now better. 41 match & 27 live.
Back in 2014 only 24 live. This year World Cup save Astro because in 2014 Astro provide 5 HD channel. 1 of the channel is mosaic channel.

Singapore too far ahead compare with other country. Indonesia & Thailand Pay TV still offer SD feed for Discovery Channel. They already take HD feed. Deswai need to pay more...

Btw, i lost hope oledi for astro to add more channel(mainly HD one). Astro focus to malay & sports content. Half of Astro HD channel is in-house. We will see Astro add good channel when there is new satellite Pay TV in Malaysia.

Since Starhub has ceased Eurosports about two weeks ago, Singtel will also cease the channel on 31st July 2018.
Source: http://www.singteltv.com.sg/channelupdates/ch112-109-110.asp
I wonder whether Astro will do the same because the HD feed hasn't launched yet on the platform, which may indicate the channel has low viewership or not enough viewership to encourage Astro to launch the HD version of it on the platform.  hmm.gif

"Singtel TV will no longer carry ASN (HD) (Ch129) from 6 Aug 2018, as the channel provider has ceased operations in Singapore."
Source: http://www.singteltv.com.sg/channelupdates/ch129.asp
Starhub has already ceased this channel on 6 July 2018.
Source: http://www.starhub.com/personal/support/tv...ion-of-asn.html
I also wonder whether the Asia feed of this channel will be ceased soon, which will directly affect HyppSports because most of their programs are coming from ASN (also known as Sports Illustrated).

So, what do you think? smile.gif

If Eurosport gone. I wonder how Astro want to show some exclusive tennis & cycling sports since the channel has cease. Also, Eleven Sports in SG got cease too. No more Serie A for them? AFAIK, sportfix.tv got the rights for Serie A in Malaysia for 2017 edition. So, maybe Astro will get the rights for the next Serie A in ASSP channel. smile.gif

With regards to the UHD , I wonder if the quicker and cheaper way for them to hit the initial rollout would be to allow it on smart TV app Astro Go. This way the can control the always present piracy concern as it will not allow for HDMI out to a video capture card and they don't need to invest in any new hardware. Similar to how BBC broadcasted the recent tennis and world cup to their customers in the UK. Of course sky did it differently but there is an option at least. I know LG has the Astro Go app on the webOS platform for sure.

This Astro Go Smart TV app right?

Live TV not bad... But not all LG TV support it. Need webOS. Most of this webOS built-in only available in 4K Smart TV. smile.gif

Nothing is good anyway. Aniplus just supply simulcast anime(atleast 3-4 anime per season). The channel is only airing 1 new episode per 2 days & repeat like no tomorrow... No wonder Astro just put this channel in OD... yawn.gif

And for Animax HD is likely will never come to Astro. They will just saying to you to watch Animax On Demand if you want HD anime.... whistling.gif
