I used to be able to watch Astro Go with Express VPN to a Malaysian server while I am overseas but Astro Go has now blocked VPN access.

Do not know about that VPN, but I am currently using PureVPN to access all Malaysian channels including Astro Go, Also the Singaporean channels are working great with its Singaporean VPN Servers for me.

Think same applies for foreign iptv... cannot be used here even with vpn.

There must be serious blocks and restrictions used by the iptv providers and isp's.

If possible, we will able to watch uk sky go or singapore starhub go here.

I mean legit iptv, not ahem ones.

If you have registered for the Astro Beta, the Astro Beta app can currently watch all channels overseas even with a non-Malaysia IP address. This of course will not last long, probably during the beta period only.

Anyone can confirm a working VPN ?

I think it is a system wide check if you are running VPN.. unless the app can bypass that.

Using pure and boleh but new updates blocked it all now...

You can ask for a free trial and see how it is.
So far, no one is complaining as the server is a gigabit connection.
The highest latency is from Helsinki and he is not complaining as well.

Hi,

I just tried using BolehVPN today but unable to access Astro Go from Singapore.

Before using BolehVPN, the status is "Due to legal restrictions this content cannot be played back in this country. (ERR-1003)".
After using BolehVPN, the status changed to "Playback failed due to network error (ERR-1002)"

Is there anyone know if still can access Astro Go from oversea using BolehVPN?

Thank you!

Maybe you can try setup wireguard?
Setup something using raspberry pi at your local home and just connect using wireguard client app
