Apart from supporting the live telecast on free-to-air channels, Maxis is also enabling its subscribers to catch the biggest sporting event live anytime and anywhere on their mobile device. They have partnered with Astro to offer special World Cup Passes with free data.

Uhmm… How is it free? U still pay RM 1. That’s not free…


    free data, RM 1 fee for the match..
    I guess so


    pay RM1 to watch the match without deducting your data…


Non Astro subscriber can use Astro Go ka.?


    You can and it doesn’t even require you to login to watch the free channels. 22 World Cup matches will be shown for free on Astro arena.


      I am guessing it won’t be good experience watching Astro Arena, would be congested.

      Btw, anyone knows the 1/- cupon free data, will it be limited data or full data for the entire match?


Should thanks to the new government. Without the free screening of RTM, Astro wont offer this as their early package is much more expensive.


    Haha, Maybe Sponsor by Maxis as Goodwill to make up their role in censoring certain website election results.


Is it possible to watch them on Android tv box ? Or it's available only on mobile phone?


    negative,i personaly think they did this to destroy android tv user that hacking astro subscribe chanel.u need to buy even u want to watch 1 match in astro on the go.
