A Date With Astro B.yond

 Heard of Astro B.yond lately? Perhaps you have seen this funny advertisement below as well.

Apparently, Astro B.yond will be the first-ever High-Definition broadcast service in Malaysia. This is indeed good news to Malaysian TV lovers. One step closer to becoming a developed country, eh? Nah, I'm not all that narrow, but yeah, sometimes the status of a country is based upon such yardsticks too.

Anyway, kudos to Astro for this move, yet again consolidating its position as the leading regional broadcast company. There's no better time and place too. Being just about 6 months away from the biggest sporting event on earth, FIFA World Cup 2010 will surely help in gaining new subscribers and HDTV buyers. The internet services in Malaysia which can be best summed up as "developing" (in contrast to third-world and developed) also ensures there will be people content to catch up on the latest episodes of Grey's Anatomy, House, Smallville, Heroes, etc. one or two weeks after they are aired in the US, now in High-Definition. Nice!

At least there are some good news amid bad news in the new year in Malaysia (*for once*), but the following should rank quite highly in the good news category. Astro will be organizing a Astro B.yond Bloggers Night.

Date : 13 January 2010 (Wednesday)
Time : 7:30pm till 10.30pm
Venue : Modesto’s, Desa Sri Hartamas

Refreshments will be provided for and a total of 3 units of Astro B.yond set comprising 32” LG High Definition TV, Astro B.yond box, new remote control and new outdoor dish will be given out along with free subscription to Astro B.yond channels!

To grab the chance of attending this event, please refer to the following post on Nuffnang's blog. And yes, you got it right, Nuffnang Glitterati Bloggers will be given priority for a place (*I'm glowing proudly*).

What are you waiting for? Go sign up for Astro B.yond but first make sure you have HDTV first, otherwise your B.yond experience will be pretty ordinary. RM20 additional fee for existing Astro subscribers for 10 times better quality broadcast. Can't beat that, can we? That would be a really good deal. Don't know if we need to foot the costs of the B.yond box and outdoor dish or not, though. Deal or no deal?
