Astro’s streaming service, recently ranked as the #1 most frequently used paid video streaming service in Malaysia, is rolling out an update that will bring a few new features to Astro GO, along with a refreshed look for the interface. This comes after news that Astro is looking to introduce a 4K UHD box with cloud-based recording soon.
While that is still at the beta stage currently, Astro is progressively rolling out updates to GO users, with the update switching up a few things, including navigation, a more intuitive search engine, as well as a refined home screen that helps you to “discover more”. Astro tell us this refresh also gives users access to over 50,000 On Demand titles, along with a host of livestream channels and programmes.
At the moment, I don’t seem to have received the update on the Astro GO app on my iPad (where I usually use the app), but Astro tells us that the update is being rolled out progressively, from July 8th onwards. That said, a quick look at some screenshots from the beta program that was mentioned earlier, and you get an idea of what the refreshed interface could look like:
