Astro has announced that it is partnering with Hong Kong’s Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB) as another OTT streaming partner. This new partnership will see Astro customers getting access to the TVBAnywhere+ app and TVB’s entire library of Cantonese TV shows spanning 40000 hours of content.
The free membership to the streaming app is worth RM39.90 per month, which is TVBAnywhere+’s most premium tier, and is available to download on iOS, Android, and Huawei phones through their respective app store. Keep in mind, the service is only free for Astro customers who are subscribed to their Dynasty Pack, the company’s Chinese-focused entertainment package which starts at RM61.32 per month.
To take advantage of the TVB perk, download the app and sign in using your Astro ID starting from 3 p.m. today. Additionally, Dynasty Pack customers can watch shows on the app on up to two different devices at the same time using the same account, get less video ads, and have the ability to download shows for offline viewing on both smartphones and Android TVs.
The Premium tier includes access to the VOD Zone, which gives users the opportunity to watch the latest episodes of dramas and variety shows within one hour of it premiering in Hong Kong. Channel Zone also provides five TVB channels that you can watch live with a 3-hour playback function; TVB International Jade, TVB News Channel, TVB Entertainment News, TVB Finance and Information Channel, and TVB XingHe.
The TVBAnywhere+ library also includes new originals such as AI Romantic and Story Of Zom-B, as well as the latest dramas, talk shows, reality shows, classics, and even shows from Mainland China. All the content is available in both Mandarin and Cantonese with subtitle options in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and English.
Lately, Astro has been racking up more and more streaming partners to offer to its customers as part of its package deals. TVBAnywhere+ now joins the fold along with Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar, iQIYI, and HBO Go.
