This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

I have been a customer of Astro since 2015. In February 2022, i decided to change my decoder to ultra box because that would give me better viewing of Astro programs whenever the weather is not good. And i had to sign up for a 24 months contract which will end on 12/2/2025 Since using the ultra box, i find that Astro has been repeating its old program...

Subscribed to Astro sport pack with promo amount RM79.90 with 2 years of contracts from Jan 2023 to Jan 2025.

During July 2023 I have add on variety channel with additional of RM10.

Then I request to pull 0ff of the new channel so hoping my future bill will revert back to the original RM79.90.

But I was informed bill amount will be RM106 instead RM79.90.

Desired outcome: Reinstate my bill to the amount you have promised.

Is Astro Malaysia Holdings Legit?

Astro Malaysia Holdings earns a trustworthiness rating of 91%

Highly recommended, but caution will not hurt.

Our conclusion: After a detailed review, ComplaintsBoard finds Astro Malaysia Holdings to be a trustworthy company. Although there's a 6% resolution rate for customer complaints, which deserves attention, Astro Malaysia Holdings is known for their high standards and safety. If you're thinking about dealing with Astro Malaysia Holdings, it's wise to check how they handle complaints.

We found clear and detailed contact information for Astro Malaysia Holdings. The company provides a physical address, 2 phone numbers, and 2 emails, as well as 3 social media accounts. This demonstrates a commitment to customer service and transparency, which is a positive sign for building trust with customers.

Astro Malaysia Holdings has claimed the domain name for astro.com.my for a long time, which suggests that the website is established and has a history of being in operation. This is a positive sign, as it indicates that the website has been around for a while and may have a reputation to maintain.

Astro.com.my has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

Several positive reviews for Astro Malaysia Holdings have been found on various review sites. While this may be a good sign, it is important to approach these reviews with caution and consider the possibility of fake or biased reviews.

We looked up Astro Malaysia Holdings and found that the website is receiving a high amount of traffic. This could be a sign of a popular and trustworthy website, but it is still important to exercise caution and verify the legitimacy of the site before sharing any personal or financial information

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While Astro Malaysia Holdings has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 6% of 95 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • Astro Malaysia Holdings protects their ownership data, a common and legal practice. However, from our perspective, this lack of transparency can impede trust and accountability, which are essential for establishing a credible and respected business entity.

Astro Malaysia Holdings Iptv customer

I lodged a report last Friday morning (31/3/2023) regarding modem but until now the problem is not solved. Sadly, this is not the first time this has happened before. I waited until Monday there's still no sign of call from your so called technician so I've decided to terminate your broadband service. When I was using TM, they can solve this kind of issue in one day.

ASTRO MY SINCERE ADVICE TO YOU: ADDRESS CUSTOMERS PROBLEMS IF NOT YOU ARE GOING TO LOOSE THEM ALL. YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN THE DRAINS SOON IF NO ACTION TAKEN

Astro Malaysia Holdings Customer service

Very bad customer service experiences. Please improve on it.

There was one time my tv box broke down and I contacted customer service. The first time the customer service said they will send a technician to my place to fix the box but they never come! So I proceed to report for the 2nd and 3rd time and all I got was the EXACT SAME ANSWER as previous agents - 'Sorry, miss. We have already filed the case and working on it.'

I waited for two weeks but still no one come. On my 3rd report, I called the technician and he told me he already quit his job! How amazing is the customer service?! I cannot belive I need to wait that long for the same issue that I have reported two weeks ago! This should not be a service that a big company can provide and the follow-up service should be done by the company, not the customer! I only got the technician to come over after I reported for the 4th time.

Also, I reported another issue today. The customer service ended the messages before he confirm I have no other issue to ask. What a great service, Astro! Extremely disappointed on your service.

Astro Malaysia Holdings Astro Broadband

I reported that my internet was down on the 24 Feb night via Whatsapp. A technician came on 26 Feb but cannot resolve it because he mentioned it is the TM modem problem and he mentioned that he will arrange for a TM technician to fix/change the modem. It is 3 March now and no response from Astro. Opened numerous report numbers 16427094, and 1645179 and to no avail. The reply I received was a technician will contact me. It has been 8 days now and Astro is still arranging for a technician to check. 8 days without internet is totally unacceptable.

I do not know how long Astro plans to send a technician. 2 weeks? or 2 months? I am seriously considering canceling everything from Astro including TV. The service is so bad, it's beyond description.

From:

Desired outcome: I want the technician from Astro including Maxis and TM people to fix my internet TODAY! I have waited 1 week and nothing.

Astro Malaysia Holdings Service Currently Not Available (SCNA)

I have been enjoying some UHD Channels for several years until recently the SCNA error message appeared. Efforts to resolve the errors using the online guide failed and finally decided to communicate with the agent.

It feels like being scammed when I was told that the issue can be resolved by ASTRO sending a technician for which I must pay RM65 or free of charge with condition that I re-contract for another 12 months.

I have been paying the monthly subscription, but have not been able to enjoy the full service for what I have paid for, particularly the UHD channels. Unless I choose one of the 2 options above! This is not a scam?

Desired outcome: Resolve the SCNA issue and allow me to fully benefit from the monthly subscription!

Importance: High

Dear Ms Daphne,

Good morning.
As per my letter to you dated 14/1/2021, our maintenance staff already remove all the decoders few months ago, your staff just take it back without any other services.
Therefore, our boss disagree the dismantling charges which is RM335.00 & unwilling to pay the charges.

FYI, i see the refund amount still RM2, 743.24 from bank statement, means that Astro still charge us the dismantling charges.
Besides, I'm sorry I found out there is a 2 months security deposit which is RM 10, 560.00 paid on 26/8/2016, may i know how long will it take to receive the deposit refund?
I hope to hear from you soon about the procedure for receiving the refund, which is RM10, 895.00 in total.

If you are not the person in charge of the refund, please send me the contact email of the person in charge so that I can contact the other party.
Hope to get ur reply soon.
Thank you.

Dear Ms,

Total = 9 decoders x RM25 = RM225 + RM110 (warehousing cost) = RM 335 for the dismantling charges.

Astro Malaysia Holdings Astro IPTV manipulative way of extending contract

I called Astro Customer Service sometime February to cancel Astro Services as the program quality have deteriorated and there was not much choice. We intended to switch to Netflix - while maintaining the Maxis broadband service.
The customer service personnel advised that I need not cancel and can continue to go on with the Maxis broadband service without the purchased Astro packages. She also offered some free channels, mostly local.
I agreed.
Today (May 12th), I was getting ready to move to a new location. We called Astro to check for the process to relocate and switch the owner to my wife's name, as well as enhance the Maxis to a fibre broadband (unlimited data). To my shock, the Astro CSP told me that i was on a contract and cannot switch ownership.
I was shocked. I had wanted to terminate the service in Feb, but the CSP has evidently added a 2 year contract for "offering free Astro channels "which i did not request.
This is a very underhanded, manipulative way of Astro catching the customers unawares.
I this times of Covid and MCOs, we depend heavily on the quality of home broadband services. Astro did not provide any consideration of value ( I wanted to cancel the service ) by providing these cheap channels and bind me to a 2 year contract.

Desired outcome: Astro to give me the option to outright cancel the subscription OR give the option to transfer the ownership to my wife and upgrade to the MYR 129 Maxis broadband package.

Astro Malaysia Holdings Malaysia serials in Astro Vanavil and Vinmeen

Hi, i would like to complain about the local malaysian serials in astro vanavil and vinmeen. Why malaysian serials only based on ghost stories and serial killer stories alone? Continuously we are watching this kind of story plots since June 2020 which may influence negativity in the community and kids at home. Complains are sent to Malaysian Hindu Sangam as well. Please choose the story plots which can give positive influence to the family and community. Please avoid favourism by choosing only few directors or production team, which is very bad. This favourism only made this kind of low quality programs being approved by astro team.

Desired outcome: Please open the opportunity publicly to everybody without seeing favourism by choosing few selected people's projects only.

Astro Malaysia Holdings Repetition of movies being played

All Tamil channels on Astro:

There are so many tamil movies that can be played on Astro. But all the time, the same movies are being shown on Astro.

Please show some movies that are not shown yet on Astro instead of showing the same movies that Astro plays all the time. Example, Minale has been shown many many times and still showing again today. I wonder why. Kindly stop playing the same movies again and again repetitively. Moreover, Singam movie. This movie is always being showed as well all the time.

There are many other movies such as Taalam, JayJay, Perazhagan, Ayutha Ezhuthu, Kadhal Desam, PriyaSaki, Laysa2, Vinnaithandi Varuvaya, Adhavan, Nandha, OK Kanmani, Kadhalar Dhinam, Kutty, Aaru, Roja Enaku20 Unaku 18, Nepali, Vikram Vedha, CCV, KO, UthamaPuthiran, Sethu, Kovil, Manmathan, Mudhalvan, Kanathil Muthamital, Run, Dum Dum Dum, and the list goes on...

On the other hand, I notice that Astro also show all the nice movies later during the late night (eg 11pm) rather than 1pm, 3pm 6pm or 9pm.

Please take note on this and I hope that Astro will make it a point to take this into action/consideration as it is not only me who is complaining but many of them.

Please make our Covid-19 Quarantine more excitement for us staying indoors.

Thank you in advance.

Astro Malaysia Holdings They still cannot afford enough people to work with them

Astro customer service can't even solve my astro problem. Their people instructions are not so clear and they are so impatient. I was like hello I am waiting for them almost 30 mins to chat regarding to my problem but they don't even bother to wait for 3-4 mins. It sucks. I know they need to face other customers too but I paid so expensive for monthly and they still cannot afford enough people to work with them? I hope astro could do more better than this and I was wrong again. I think it's time to find other alternative :)
