In conjunction with the Merdeka and Malaysia Day celebrations, Astro is opening all of its channels for free viewing. This is offered for a duration of 19 days starting from today and it’s available to all Astro residential customers on both the TV and via the Astro Go app.

The complimentary access to all channels is available from 30 August until 17 September 2018. This covers over 200 channels across multiple genres including Malay, Chinese, Indian, English, News, Anime, K-pop and Kids content. However, the free viewing excludes pay per view and special event channels.

If you won’t be spending the long weekend at home, you can access all channels on your smartphone or tablet with the Astro Go app. The app is available on both iOS and Android. Just make sure that you’ve linked your Astro account to enjoy the full access viewing.

On top of that, Astro is offering a 31% cashback promotion for PPV (Pay Per View) content for your 2nd purchase onwards. Do take note that this offer will end tomorrow, 31 August 2018.
