OD by Astro enables Malaysians to personalise their TV viewing experience – from the content selection to how and when they want to watch their shows. The rich choice of content including the latest and the biggest box office movies and complete seasons of TV series will appeal to the different individuals in a household.

Now, every individual in every household, in addition to linear TV channels, can personalise their viewing experience to enjoy their favourite movies and TV series instantly at their convenience. OD is available to Astro customers through an Internet-connected Personal Video Recorder (PVR) at home, or via Astro on the Go (AOTG) on a smartphone, laptop or tablet, with options to suit different needs and every budget. Non-Astro customers can also enjoy the OD content via AOTG.

A new download feature for AOTG is now available, where programmes can be downloaded on mobile devices for offline viewing later.
