Astro refreshes its kids pack with an exciting and fresh new line up.

We're delighted to share that Astro is refreshing its Kids Pack for the next generation of Malaysian kids with two exciting new entertainment channels plus 10,000 On Demand episodes starting December 15.

First, please welcome Boomerang (Ch 619) and Nick Jr. (Ch 617) to our family. These two great channels will join Cartoon Network (Ch 615 HD / Ch 635) and Nickelodeon (Ch 616 HD / Ch 636) on the Kids Pack, and will complement Baby TV (Ch 618), Astro Xiao Tai Yang (Ch 304 HD / Ch 344), Chutti TV (Ch 213), Astro Tutor TV (Ch 601 / Ch 602 / Ch 603), Astro TVIQ (Ch 610), and, of course, Malaysia's no. 1 kids entertainment brand, Astro Ceria (Ch 611 HD / Ch 631). We're looking forward to pre-school favourite Nick Jr. (Ch 617) enhancing our line up with global hits like Paw Patrol, Dora the Explorer, Top Wings, Shimmer and Shine and Blue's Clues & You whilst Boomerang (Ch 619), with its multi-generational appeal, is the home of hit shows such as Mr. Bean: The Animated Series, My Little Pony: Pony Life, Scooby-doo! Guess Who?, The Tom & Jerry Show, The Looney Tunes Show and Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures.

In addition, we have over 10,000 episodes of quality children's entertainment and education available on Astro On Demand and Astro GO including hits such as We Bare Bears, SpongeBob SquarePants, Beyblade, Upin & Ipin, Ejen Ali, Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, Ben 10, Peppa Pig, Lego Friends, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bandanamu Kids Songs, Molang, Oddbods, Thomas & Friends, SMK, Omar & Hana, Didi and Friends, The Five Elves, Happy Little Submarines, Motu Patlu, Bahubali, and much, much more!

And there's more! We're just putting the final touches to FAMtv (Ch 100), a brand new pop-up channel for all customers to enjoy from December 15. FAMtv (Ch 100) promises something the whole family can enjoy with Malaysia's favourites such as Running Man, Mr. Bean, Doraemon, Phua Chu Kang, Crayon Sin Chan, Dexter's Laboratory, Kampung Boy and many more.

While we're delighted about our refreshed kids content slate we should also advise that Disney has notified all regional South East Asia partners it will be discontinuing the Disney XD HD (Ch 612) on 31 December 2020, 24:00 hours. As part of this upcoming refresh of our Kids Pack, Disney Channel HD (Ch 614 HD / Ch 634) and Disney Junior HD (Ch 613) will also cease broadcast on our network on 31 December 2020, 24:00 hours. We would like to thank our customers for their understanding and regret any inconvenience caused.

As always, our customers, especially our young ones, remain at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to continuously improving our children's entertainment and education offerings and can't wait to share all of the great new line up. It all begins in just a few days!
