KUALA LUMPUR, 23 August 2022 – As part of Astro’s commitment to delivering as simple and as seamless a viewing experience as possible, we are excited to introduce the Disney+ Hotstar app on the Ulti Box.

First launched on the Ultra Box earlier this year, from today, all Ulti Box customers with an active Disney+ Hotstar subscription will be able to enjoy the benefits of the Disney+ Hotstar app. With the exciting addition of this popular streaming service, Ulti Box customers can now switch between hit local channels and the Disney+ Hotstar app’s library of endless entertainment without ever needing to leave the Astro interface – enabling a more seamless and enjoyable viewing experience for all.

This timely launch coincides with the release of a slate of highly anticipated Disney+ Hotstar content, including K-drama Big Mouth, starring Lee Jong-Suk and Lim Yoona; Marvel Studios’ She-Hulk, a legal comedy starring Emmy® Award winning actress Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters—an attorney specializing in superhuman-oriented legal cases; The Bear, a drama series about a brilliant young chef who leaves behind the world of fine dining to run his family’s sandwich shop; Pinocchio (coming 8 Sep) a live action and CGI retelling of the beloved Disney classic and THE ZONE: Survival Mission (coming 8 Sep), an exciting new Korean variety show starring Yu Jaeseok, Lee Kwangsoo, and Kwon Yuri. 

HD-enabled Ulti Boxes allow customers to stream their favourite shows uninterrupted; pause, rewind or fast-forward live events, and stream up to 90,000 On Demand titles seamlessly across their devices. For even more value, new customers can add Astro Fibre, Astro’s own internet service to enjoy a FREE upgrade to a higher speed tier for 6 months* when they sign up for the 50 Mbps, 100 Mbps or 500 Mbps bundle plans as part of our WiFi Lagi Kencang campaign!
