At Netflix, 
Our goal is to offer the best-in-class entertainment to our members, 
And we’re thrilled that through this partnership with Astro
More Malaysians will be able to experience and enjoy our entire catalogue —

Which is a huge favourite among fans in Malaysia”.

The full functionalities of the new Astro viewing experience across linear TV,

For new customers the Ultra and Ulti Plug & Play Boxes 
We announced recently are gamechangers - 
They can be self-installed by a customer 
And run solely on a broadband connection, 
Meaning it’s no longer compulsory to have a satellite dish. 
We were the first in the region to launch 4K High Dynamic Range 
And Dolby Atmos capability to bring sports fans a premium viewing experience 
In crystal clear 4K UHD. 
Today, we hit another milestone by aggregating the Netflix app
Directly onto Ultra Box so that customers can stream Netflix content seamlessly

More apps including Disney+ Hotstar will quickly follow, 
Making us the Number 1 aggregator of the best streaming services in Malaysia.”
