Astro offers free viewing of all movie channels amid the 14-day movement control order

As the country looks set to enter a 14-day Movement Control Order period from tomorrow until March 31, Astro said it will be offering its customers complimentary viewing of all movie channels.

The freebie came a day after the announcement of the Movement Control Order by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin last night to curb the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) infection in Malaysia.

“As the nation goes through these challenging times to contain the Covid-19 pandemic via the Movement Control Order, Astro is committed to serving Malaysians by keeping them informed and entertained,” it said in a statement.
