Just a couple of weeks ago, Astro added Viu to its 4K-enabled Ultra Box. Fast forward to today, the streaming service is now accessible on Astro’s more affordable Ulti Box too. On top of that, ZEE5 has also been added to the two connected set-top-boxes.
With the addition of Viu to the Ulti Box, the complimentary three-month subscription to Viu Premium has now been extended to customers who own either the aforementioned Ulti Box and the Ultra Box. It’s worth noting that the subscription usually costs RM14.90 per month.
The complimentary access to Viu Premium for Ultra Box and Ulti 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.
As for ZEE5, Astro customers on the Ultra or Ulti Box can start streaming content from the service today. To access exclusive content and remove ads, users can add ZEE5 premium to their subscription for RM10.60/month instead of the usual RM14.90/month rate.
