Back in November last year, Astro added support for Netflix to its 4K-enabled Ultra Box. Unfortunately, this wasn’t available on the more affordable HD Ulti Box…until now. From today onwards, you can start streaming Netflix through the Astro Ulti Box.
This makes it more compelling to purchase Astro TV packs that have Netflix bundled together; the most affordable one is the Entertainment Plus Pack for RM129.99/month. If you want both Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar in the same TV pack, there’s Premium Pack 3 for RM154.99/month. Access to HBO GO is also offered in this bundle.
Of course, you don’t have to purchase these TV packs to access Netflix on Astro’s Ulti Box. As long as you have an active subscription to the streaming service, you can log on to Netflix without any issue. It’s just a little bit more convenient to include the subscription cost into a single bill, especially if you fancy other content in the TV pack.
To access Netflix on the Astro Ulti Box, just find for the streaming service on the home screen. Alternatively, you can tune in to Channel 741 to start streaming.
