It has been a long wait for the fans of DC Extended Universe but today, they are finally able to catch the much-anticipated Zack Snyder’s Justice League. In selected markets throughout Asia including Malaysia, the 3 hours 52 minutes movie is being made available through HBO Asia’s streaming service, HBO Go.
For our market, the access to Zack Snyder’s Justice League was scheduled to be opened at 3:01 PM Malaysian time. However, things went awry rather quickly as disgruntled users begin to flood HBO Asia’s social media pages and complained that they were not able to watch the movie.
Hi everyone, we are working hard to restore the service! Sorry to keep you waiting but thank you for your patience!

To HBO Asia’s credit though, the company has responded to its users in less than 20 minutes after technical difficulties began to haunt users. It was done through a message on HBO Asia’s Twitter and Facebook page in which the company said that it is indeed aware of the issue and currently working to rectify it.
At the time this article was published, we were still experiencing slow loading time on the HBO Go app and website but we did eventually manage to load the movie within 5 to 10 minutes. Your mileage may vary but based on our experience, it seems that the cause behind the issue could be a sudden spike of users jumping on the platform which is something that HBO should have expected given the hype that surrounds Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
🚨UPDATE🚨#ZackSnydersJusticeLeague is now available on Astro GO!
We apologize again for the delay 🙏

On another hand, if you obtained access to HBO Go via your Astro subscription, you can also catch Zack Synder’s Justice League via Astro GO. While the satellite TV company did face some technical difficulties at first , it has since confirmed that customers should already be able to watch the movie which is also fondly referred to as Snyder Cut through the service.
