In light of the recent postponement of sports events globally, Astro has decided to offer its full Sports Pack customers* a special rebate of RM20 per month over their next two bills.
This decision is the latest in a series of actions Astro has taken to support customers during the Movement Control Order (MCO), including the provision of additional channels and content on a complimentary basis. Now, during the current Conditional MCO, Sports Pack customers continue to enjoy complimentary viewing of all channels**, while other customers enjoy complimentary viewing of News, Learning, Asian Movies and Stay Home Concert channels.
CK Lee, Head of Sports at Astro said, “The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many events globally including live sports. In view that there have been no live sports in the past 2 months, we believe offering this additional one-off rebate is the right thing to do. Active Sports Pack customers as at 31 May will have the rebate reflected in their next 2 bills in June and July.”
Lee continued, “We are pleased to see live sports making a comeback. Apart from curating best of moments and other sports content, Astro went live with the Bundesliga, K-League and UFC last weekend and will broadcast more live sports events and leagues as and when they resume. We are proactively in conversation on the return of live sports with the rights holders.”
