I don't know, maybe they renewed their pay-TV licence or Astro will granted free TV market in future. Let's hope the news receive from Tun M.

The Celestial Movies SD on Starhub and Singtel is in 16:9, however it's a SG feed ..... Maybe astro requested the astro SD feed to be in 4:3 for their CRT TV viewers.
*
Celestial Movies HD is the only exclusive HD channels in Malaysia and never launch in Singapore and Indonesia. Also, SD feed in 4:3 is for Malaysia and Indonesia.

Can Media Prima afford to pay the HD fee to MYTV? TBH Media Prima should rebrand like mediacorp, TV3 for Malay content, 8tv for Chinese, Japan and Korean, NTV7 for English and TV9 for Indian.
*
We must wait Johan Ishak been kick out from Media Prima Television Networks and rebranding all 4 Media Prima channels are:

* TV3 - An 24 hour TV channel that broadcast Malay & Hindi content.
* NTV7 - Malaysia No. 1 first 24 hour English entertainment channel.
* 8TV - An mass Chinese entertainment channel.
* TV9 - An youth Chinese entertainment channel .

"Report Card" on Astro's journey to 100 HD channels by 1 Jan 2020

https://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopi...post&p=94178038

As of 12 Dec 2019, how's Astro's progress of offering 100 HD channels so far? Let's look at the latest list of all HD channels on Astro now:
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «

So, Astro is currently having a total of 92 HD channels
*If you want to include the 3 Astro First/Best pay-per-view movie channel in HD quality (CH495, 496, 497), then it will be 95 HD channels in total.

Of course, those temporary HD channels (that will cease broadcast after the event ends) like Astro SuperSport on CH826, Astro Box Office CH825 all those, are not counted.

It appear that CNBC channel did not manage to become available in HD? Or they've changed their mind? hmm.gif Whatever...
Cuz apparently CCTV 4 is joining the HD bandwagon.  smile.gif For those CCTV 4 fans out there, happy for u la.

Ok back to the topic, there's about 3 weeks left before 1 Jan 2020. So out of these 15-16 channels below that are available in HD elsewhere:
Which of these above would Astro simulcast it in HD by 1 Jan 2020? Cuz if exclude the 3 PPV HD channels, Astro still have 8 remaining HD channel slots to make it to the 100 HD channels mark.
And don't forget, DIVA and E! is leaving this coming 31 Dec 2019, so that number could make up to 10 remaining HD channels, or 7 HD channels if include PPV HD channels..?  sweat.gif

For me, I definitely wish to see MTV and Animax to be available in HD. Yet, I've been waiting that to happen for years.

Or would they make Astro Go exclusive channels to be "no longer exclusive" and makes it part of linear TV channel lineup too?

Or, would Astro plan to upgrade its existing in-house SD channels, as below? :
Out of all these, I find that Astro Awani very likely the one. But that is if they upgrade and supply news content/package in HD format instead of using SD quality broadcast cameras.
Another one is Astro Vaanavil and Vellithirai. There's a possibility there. Other than that, it's very likely that those will remain as SD as now.

What you guys think?
*
Don't forget RTM, Media Prima, TV Alhijrah and Bernama will make decision to bring their channels in HD on Astro.

Good question. I was wondering the same thing too.
I think it is better that they allocate a range of LCN numbers to use exclusively for FTA TV stations to be used across multiple different TV platforms. Meaning, all DTT, Astro and Unifi TV, as well as any new pay TV providers to use the same LCN number, so that won't have different LCN across different platforms. I have no idea what Astro is thinking. Create public confusion is their goal now?

Out of a sudden, 146 until 149 for TV Okey, NTV7, 8TV and TV9.
Is it because they see that these channels has low viewership, so they don't care much and put those channels numbers to far behind? I mean, not to forget that NTV7 and TV9 are just CJ Wow Shop most of the time.
Maybe Astro don't want their viewers to easily come across CJ Wow Shop content, and they rather want to have easier access to Go Shop channels?
*
Or maybe, due to new government arrival, the channel were forced to moved.

I just realise Astro AEC now also airs Go Shop in Cantonese. 😂

Previously, Cantonese version of Go Shop usually air on Astro Wah Lai Toi, but because Astro WLT is going to bye bye on 1 Apr, so local Cantonese content all move to Astro AEC, including Go Shop...?

Ah, can can... At least we can get to see some Cantonese language content on Astro AEC.

I'm affaid that won't be happen.

Oh my....
I just checked mine... Apparently I can now watch Cartoon Network too 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈
And yes, only Cartoon Network and nothing else. Disney, Nickelodeon all those, nope.
I'm not sports pack customer, so yea, looks that they opened for everyone also.

Astro prefers open up the channels day per day, rather than one shot?
Or they just can't take it anymore cuz too many customers making too much noise to them to open up cartoon channels, so they open just Cartoon Network to keep our mouth shut?  biggrin.gif
Aiyaa, good enough already... Beggars can't be choosy. If any of you want all cartoon channels, just subscribe to Kids pack. No money no talk.

Also, I read that apparently Astro has opened Celestial Movies (322) to Njoi users.
Any Njoi users here can confirm?  hmm.gif
*
Don't forget Celestial Movies HD (309) is open too.

So seems to me that they're 'restructuring' its Bahasa Indonesia's offering on Astro.

What I know is,
Bintang usually air those Indonesian series (sinetron), and some TV shows etc
Pelangi used to air only Indonesian movies, but nowadays with some Indonesian TV shows too.

Meanwhile...

Astro Rania is like, similar role like Bintang but rojak with many kinds of Indonesian shows, from variety, drama, shows, maybe movie I dunno...

Astro Aura focuses on Indonesian Dangdut music targeting youths, which is something new on Astro? (Btw for those who dunno what Dangut music is, read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dangdut )
Seems like Astro Aura channel will be a Malay-Indo music channel to me.

Will see  rclxms.gif
*
Maybe Astro Rania HD is the successor of Pelangi (Channel 142) due to broadcast more program from NET Indonesia.

What about Chinese people? How much they watch WLT before that when it is replaced it does it affect their viewing?
Can you list Chinese channels on Astro and the general opinion of Chinese regarding those channels?

Wah Lai Toi transition to VOD will cause the viewer confuse just like NTV7.

Yeah, after Astro Awani in HD, all chinese news, information and documentary must move to Awani and allow AEC exclusively via On Demand and on Astro GO.
