This guide is also available in video version from this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Na8VerZrLt8 or you can watch directly from below:
This is a quick guide how to get the free Astro preview:
Step by step to obtain Astro preview:
Go to channel 200.
Locate the pack that you want. Use the arrow buttons to navigate and the “OK” button to select. This tutorial will use the sports pack as an example.
There will be 2 options: “Monthly” and preview. Of course, you need to choose preview the get the free access.
To subscribe to the sports pack, you need to choose at lease 1 mini pack. Same goes to the free preview, choose at least one but I will select all of them since they are free.
To submit the request to preview access. Send the unique code to Astro either via WhatsApp or SMS.
- WhatsApp the code to “0395433838”
- SMS the code to “33888”
Hopefully, next time Astro can upgrade the system so I can send the request directly from the set-top box without having to swap the remote control with my smartphone.
From my experience, the SMS method will charge you sending fee of RM0.15 but i am not sure the amount is accurate or not because it has been a while since last time.
I choose the WhatsApp way since it is free. If you see “Sorry! We are experiencing technical difficulties” like I used to, then you need to select the other way.
- Active for 2 days
- Can be requested every 6 months (from my past experiences, iirc)
If you want to watch the sports channels more than once per 6 months then you can get the preview for Super Pack 1, then Super Pack 2, Super Pack 3, Super Pack Plus 1, etc.
If you noticed in the video, when I selected the “Sports” option, there were at least 9 options that contain sports channels to choose from. You can get the preview access for them one by one during the six months. That is a deal, go for preview during big games only.
And that’s it. I hope you find this helpful and happy watching.
