Astro Adds Viu to Ultra Box – Free 3-Month Subscription to Viu Premium
March 10, 2023 Andrew Cheng

Astro is adding yet another streaming service to its 4K-enabled Ultra Box. Viu is now accessible on the connected set-top-box, and to celebrate the availability of the service on the platform, eligible customers can enjoy a complimentary three-month subscription to Viu Premium.

Of course, in order to enjoy the free subscription to Viu Premium – which costs RM14.90 per month – you have to be an Astro Ultra Box customer. That being said, existing Astro users can still redeem this free trial by upgrading to the Ultra Box. This can be done by contacting Astro’s customer service centre at 03-9543 3838.

The complimentary access to Viu Premium for Ultra Box customers is valid until 8 June 2023. Once the free subscription is over, Astro owners can add the streaming service to their subscription “at an exclusive offer,” though the company did not reveal more information beyond that.

Nonetheless, future updates on any offers related to Viu with Astro can be found here. If you’ve got an Ultra Box, you can already start accessing Viu on the connected set-top-box. If you want to stream Viu via the mobile app or website instead, just click on the “pair account” button and follow the on-screen instructions.

We were told that Viu will be added to the more affordable Astro Ulti Box as well, but no tentative timeline was announced.
