Just in time for the rollout of its Netflix integration, Astro has revealed a new set of TV packages for their customers. Based on our understanding of the information provided on the website, the general foundation of Astro’s new offerings consisted of Primary Pack and Entertainment Pack.
The Primary Pack is the new base package for Astro which covers 90+ channels and inclusive of Ulti Box as well as access to Astro Go, and 200 hours of cloud storage. Depending on the contract duration that you choose, the price for this package can be as low as RM59.99 although this is not inclusive of the installation fee which also depends on the contract duration that you picked during sign up.
If you are a sports fan, then you can opt for the Sports Pack which is essentially a Primary Pack with Sports add-on. With a starting price of RM 89.99, you would also be provided with the higher-end Ultra Box.

Priced from RM 94.99 per month, this particular combo includes access to Disney+ Hotstar and HBO Go apps as well as the Ultra Box. If you want both Movies and Sports add-ons, you can go for the Premium Pack 1 that has a starting price of RM124.99.
