CCTV9 (Ch. 36) should be in Family Package[edit]

it is because I did not subscribe to any chinese package (I only subscribe 4 mini packages [no Variety]), and I still got that CCTV9 (Ch. 36) channel... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 124.82.30.120 (talk) 05:24, 24 December 2006 (UTC).

CCTV9 is actually in the dynasty package (chinese channels) but is given free to any Astro subscriber, even if they do not subscribe to the Dynasty/Emperor package. See www.astro.com.my / Astro Guide. Acs4b 09:40, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Measat[edit]

I would like to clarify that Measat 1 (picture) is not just used in Malaysia ang ASTRO, because MEASAT is also been used by Philippine TV Networks such as GMA Network and SOLAR Entertainment Corporation. So i'll gonna change it's description from "... over Malaysia" to "... over South-east Asia."

Astro MAX[edit]

Is it even possible to transfer recorded programs to DVD or video tapes as claimed on the page? HuguanSiou 08:57, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but to transfer recorded programmes to DVD or VHS, one must have a VCR and it must be connected in some way to the Astro MAX decoder. This feature is available on My MAX (The place where recorded programmes on Astro are stored; Channel 999). However, I am not so sure how the transferring of programmes are done, as I have not tried this feature on Astro MAX before which means the sentence "Copies of programmes recorded can also be transferred to DVD or VHS tape" which can be seen on the page currently remains not cited.

I've heard that Astro Max is temporary unavailable, and that means it has been discontinued permanently? 121.120.156.73 (talk) 04:51, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

It is true. Astro MAX has been already discontinued. Permanently. 121.120.128.51 (talk) 19:59, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Adding information on New Channels[edit]

Dont you guys think adding a whole paragraph for new channels announced is overkill? Why not just add the channel names and numbers in the Lineup.... You can add other relevant information on the channel on its own page. Expediter 13:25, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

In the June issue of Astro Guide, I noticed that there will (probably) be 2 extra channels added to the channels line-up. The channels are hidden within the new channels (Discovery Science, E! Entertainment, etc.) program listings. According to the guide, Astro will have The History Channel on Channel 54 and Crime & Investigation Network on Channel 79. They will be launched (tentatively) on Friday, 15th June.
It's up to you guys who have an account to add these info in the article. I prefer to not edit it myself. =)

IMO, since the channels are listed in a separate page now, why don't we place the history of announced channels inclusion into the now empty section of Channels Line-up. That would distribute the article "evenly", I hope.

Question[edit]

anyone has idea what is channel 900, then 911 - 916? I press the I-II button, it indicates Cantonese audio for channels 900, 911, 913 till 916 and English audio for channel 912. Is Astro gonna add new channels again?


Spot on. It's for the "Astro On Demand" (AOD) program, where it features the newest Cantonese dramas, premièring in Malaysia the same time as in Hong Kong. The following is the information I get from the Astro On Demand website.
The newest episode will be released at night (either 8:30pm or 9:30pm), then it will be repeated continuously until another premièring episode replaces it. If viewers missed a previous episode, they can catch it back through designated channels shown in the "AOD schedule" channel 900 or the website. The designated channels will loop 4 consecutive episodes continuously until one week after the series ended.

I wonder if anyone would like to transfer my idea to the main Astro article, or even start a new AOD article. Hytar 10:50, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

astro tv please we beg your pardon we need mtv station.and try and subtitle all your movies to english especially india movies not everybody understand india...............tanx

QUOTE[edit]

"Astro has previously announced that it would introduce 50 new channels with the launch of the MEASAT-3 satellite. However, delays affecting the manufacture of the satellite and problems with the launch vehicle has pushed back the launch of the satellite from mid-2005 to December 12, 2006."

Question : Is this paragraph still relevant/necessary? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.50.114.254 (talk) 06:26, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Astroold.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Astroold.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
