Being the official broadcaster for FIFA World Cup in Malaysia, that generally means you need to have Astro in order to watch the tournament although the company does offer passes for non-subscribers to catch the event via Astro GO platform. If you don’t want to opt for the paid pass, fret not: you still able to catch some of those matches for free.
According to the satellite TV operator, Astro will broadcast 22 selected FIFA World Cup matches for free through one of its sports channel, Astro Arena. Even we have yet to receive the full list of matches that will be shown for free by the company, Astro has confirmed that the list will include the tournament’s opening and final matches.
While Astro customers without Sports Pack subscription or World Cup pass will be able to watch these free matches through their TV screen, non-Astro customers will only able to see them through Astro GO app. All one need to do is sign up for Astro ID which is available for free of charge in order to utilize the app.
