Astro on the Go users can now download their favourite content and watch it anytime anywhere without an internet connection, with its newly launched download feature.
This new feature made available on the Android version of Astro on the Go. The satellite TV operator claims that it is the first video streaming service in Malaysia that enables downloads of TV shows and movies to be watched offline.
Astro said users can download and catch up on programmes such as Konsert Akademi Fantasia 2015, Plan Cinta Tak Jadi, Awak Ke Mana , Million Star, Chinese Running Man (S2), No Big Deal, Get the Look and more.
Users need to look out for the “Download Available” button on contents that are available for download.

Downloads will automatically be carried out one at a time and while waiting, users can also watch another programme. Once completed, the downloaded content can be found at the Watchlist section of the app.
Launched in 2012, Astro on the Go offers live TV channels, video on demand, TV shows, movies and more for web and smartphone users. The mobile application requires high speed Internet to stream, watch or download contents.
Astro said users will need to update the Astro on the Go app to the latest version on Android devices to use the new download feature which is currently free until further notice. The download feature will be coming soon to iOS devices.
