Astro Offers Rebate For Sports Pack Subscribers Due To Lack Of Live Sports
Author Avatar

With the lack of live sporting events due to Covid-19, Astro has decided to offer a rebate of RM20 per month for two months to its full Sports Pack subscribers. This rebate will be reflected in the next two bills (June and July 2020).

The lockdowns around the world have disrupted live sporting events. From the postponement of football leagues in Europe including the English Premier League, which is a Malaysian weekend staple, to the 2020 Olympic Games which has now been moved to 2021, the effects of Covid-19 has meant that Astro Sports Pack subscribers have been paying for zero live sporting events in recent months.

Thus far, Astro has offered complimentary viewing for all channels as compensation for these subscribers. Meanwhile, other subscribers automatically get free viewing of News, Learning, Asian Movies, and Stay At Home Concert channels. This remains valid throughout the MCO and CMCO.

“The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted many events globally including live sports.

“In view that there have been no live sports in the past 2 months, we believe offering this additional one-off rebate is the right thing to do.

“Active Sports Pack customers as at May 31st will have the rebate reflected in their next two bills in June and July,” said Lee Choong Khay, Head of Sports at Astro.

It appears this rebate seems to come out of Astro’s own pocket, as Astro’s FAQ on this clearly states that Astro is still incurring all broadcasting costs “without any rebates received for cancelled sports events”.
