Nowadays, it is becoming more and more common to stream movies and TV shows online (legally, of course, what were you thinking?) because we don't always have the luxury to sit in front of the TV all day long waiting to catch the latest episode of our favourite shows at a specific time.
In Malaysia, we have the privilege of choosing from a number of video streaming services, whether based on budget, usability or content.
And at the top of the ranks is Astro GO.
According to a survey by FT Confidential Research
, Astro GO
came out first place as the most popular paid-for video streaming service in Malaysia
The survey required respondents to answer the question, "What is your most frequently used paid-for video streaming service?".
The homegrown brand, Astro, came out on top and ahead of other big industry players like Netflix Google Play and Unifi TV.
This result could be due to the fact that the company has a 77 per cent market share in Malaysian pay TV and its streaming service, Astro GO is available to all Astro customers.
This allows the consumers to access any content that is available on the platform based on their subscription.
Besides that, the Astro GO app successfully recorded 2.2 million registered users with an average viewing time of 149 minutes per week.
This means that subscribers can now unlock an On Demand library with over 48,000 titles, including day-date titles from Hollywood, Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, India, premium Sports, blockbuster movies, kids, and popular local vernacular programmes anytime, anywhere on their device of choice.
You literally have all your favourite movies and shows at the palm of your hands, that is the beauty of video streaming.
