Astro NJOI is a Malaysia free satellite television service launched on 18 February 2012 in collaboration with the government of Malaysia and Astro.[1] It was officially announced by Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak on 20 December 2011.[2] At launch, the service provided 18 television channels and 19 radio stations. However, existing Astro customers may still able to receive this service through separate account.[3]

The set-up, which consist of a set-top box, Out-Door Unit (ODU) satellite dish, smartcard and remote control unit, was available at a one-time payment of RM 308 at all Astro authorised retailers, with a standard installation fee of RM 100 from an Astro-authorised installer as stated on the website. In mid-2013, the one-time payment was reduced to RM 280, and installation remains at RM 100. The platform uses prepaid card method where one can pay for the day and amount for the prepaid channels that one wants to watch. The decoder's HDMI output is locked out and this leaves users with composite signal and component video output. However, certain decoders with updated firmware are able to use the HDMI output.

On 19 June 2013, three channels were added, namely NTV7, 8TV and TV AlHijrah.[4]

On 1 February 2014, Astro customers with inactive Set Top Box (decoder) as at 31 December, can subscribe to the NJOI service for free from 1 February until 30 April 2014.

NJOI launched its first free HD channel for all NJOI users on 1 February 2015 with Astro's seventh Chinese HD channel called Astro Xi Yue HD.[5]

On 29 May 2015, a HD Malay channel, Astro Maya HD (CH 135) is made available for free to view to commemorate its millionth users milestone.[6] On 2 June 2015, Go Asean HD(CH 737) channel was launched on NJOI. Astro NJOI currently offers 25 SDTV channels, 3 HDTV channels and 20 radio channels.
