Sports fans in Malaysia are set to enjoy the ultimate viewing experience when Astro debuts its live sports broadcast in stunning 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Dolby Atmos on the Ultra Box.
These features are a first in Malaysia and will make this year’s biggest sporting events – UEFA EURO 2020™ and Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, even more immersive and exciting for sports fans.
With all UEFA EURO 2020™ matches in 4K HDR, every moment comes to life with brighter and more accurate colour; and better contrast.
Live matches beyond the quarter finals will also feature Dolby Atmos, to bring the audio realism of being at the stadium right into your living room.
Fans watching UEFA EURO 2020™ matches on the go via Astro’s streaming app, Astro GO, can also expect an enhanced viewing treat with an all-new Interactive Mode.
Astro GO’s new experience, designed specifically for live sports, displays interactive overlays for fans to access instant highlights, match statistics, player statistics, fixtures of upcoming matches, and more.
To access 4K HDR content, an HDR-capable TV that supports HDR (HLG format) is required, which is automatically enabled when detected by the Ultra Box.
All Sports Pack customers can experience Interactive Mode on Astro GO during live UEFA EURO 2020 matches.
Look out for the Interactive Mode button on the programme details of each match to activate the feature. Experience Interactive Mode on the Astro GO app or www.astrogo.com.my.
UEFA EURO 2020TM kicks off on 12 June with the opening match between Turkey and Italy at 3AM (MYT).
Ultra Box customers with Sports Pack will get the best experience on two UHD channels (CH781 and CH782), both of which will show live matches and repeats in 4K HDR.
Sports pack customers can stream live on Astro GO or watch on the two dedicated HD channels (CH 810 and CH809) that will also be showing a great selection of qualifying matches, highlights, friendly matches and magazine shows.
