KITA Teguh Bersama theme to encourage all Malaysians to come together to stay strong

New premiering titles i.e. Tanah Tumpahnya Darah Kita, We Are No Different, On Your Mark and many more

Astro 25 on Channel 100 offers an incredible slate of over 150 titles for all customers, 16 August to 3 October

Astro marks this National Day with the theme #KitaTeguhBersama that coincides with the company's 25th year of serving Malaysians. As a gesture of appreciation to all customers, Astro will launch Astro 25 on Channel 100, with specially curated content featuring the best of Malaysian and Asian entertainment, premieres, blockbuster hits, and new documentaries from 16 August to 3 October 2021 on Astro TV, On Demand and Astro GO.

Henry Tan, Group Chief Executive Officer, Astro said, It's a very special Merdeka and National Day for us this year and our theme, #KitaTeguhBersama means we're stronger and better together. It is a reflection of the best of what we have seen in Malaysians and continues to be the common value we need for us to unite, recover and grow through these times.

Astro has carried out several initiatives in line with the #KitaTeguhBersama spirit including:

Supporting the National Blood Bank's blood donation drive

Supporting the nation's COVID-19 Immunisation drive with Public Service Announcements, volunteering at PPVs and providing TVs and Astro services at quarantine centres nationwide

Helping the needy through KamiCare community programmes

Helping SMEs through KamiCare MBiz campaign

Contributing medical equipment for hospitals and laptops to students in the B40 groups

Continuing to inform, entertain and uplift Malaysians with our complimentary channels during the MCO, non-stop dramas, new signatures, and premium original series

Increasing our academic content to enable kids to learn from home

Uniting Malaysians in their support and pride for our athletes at the Tokyo Olympics 2020

Tan continued, Astro is 25 years young this year and we will continue to provide the best mix of content including aggregating the best streaming services i.e. Astro GO, Disney+ Hotstar, HBO Go, iQIYI and soon Netflix. We will also raise the bar for local original content, and live signatures to further delight Malaysians.

As we look back on the 25 years of serving our customers that included the achievement of many first such as the first HD, 3D and 4K UHD broadcast, first cinema in your home, Astro First, the region's first 24/7 local sports channel and much more, we are honoured to have played a part in the lives of so many. We championed education, put local sports and athletes on the global stage, raised the bar for local content, discovered and made stars and provided opportunities for Malaysians to shine and realise their dreams and potential. Our talent like Nabil, Aznil, Zizan, Remy, Hui Min, Denesh, Ean and Arnold, Chiu Keng Guan to name a few have gone beyond and achieved their dreams. As they say, dreams are made together and none of these could have been possible without our customers.

In the last 12 months Astro also achieved its highest grossing Astro First movie of all time, Mael Totey, introduced local premium drama megahit, Projek Anchor SPM, extended the Hantu Kak Limah universe with the hit Kampong Pisang and refreshed its drama slate to attract a new audience through the likes of Scammer and Ratu Ten Pin. Along the way Rindu Awak Separuh Nyawa on Astro RIA became the #1 drama of 2021 and much awaited exclusives premiered such as Zack Snyder's Justice League, Friends: The Reunion and the K-drama that had everyone talking, Penthouse. Our vernacular content IPs such as flagship news talk shows, Evening Edition and Prime Talk and best of Chinese signatures Classic Golden Melody and documentary Social Playlist continue to be firm favourites together with popular drama series Tamiletchumy on Astro Vaanavil and movies Vetti Passenge, Vedigundu Passenge and Appalam.

Astro 25 on Channel 100 for all

Starting from 16 August to 3 October, all Astro customers can tune into Astro 25 on channel 100 and enjoy new premiering titles: -

Tanah Tumpahnya Darah Kita, a documentary that originally started off with the story of one man who detailed his sacrifice in the army through letters to his wife and young family and which grew to include the stories of other veterans whose valour in defending our country transcended race, creed, language and culture. In retracing the steps and trials of these brave men we recruited a group of young Malaysian artists including Red Hong Yi who were all keen to be involved in the interpretation of the sacrifice of our brave soldiers.

We Are No Different by Chiu Keng Guan is the first ever documentary about interracial adoption amongst Malaysian families whose stories are often overlooked by society but treated as the norm. We meet Hero, Sarah, Lavinya and Kamala to uncover their stories about acceptance and the bonds of love that go beyond blood ties.

Journey To Stardom which chronicles the lives of much loved local celebrities in realising their dreams.

Customers can also enjoy an incredible slate of over 150 titles comprising the best Malaysian and Asian movies, all-time favourite entertainment and reality shows, and with more surprises to come. Be sure to catch some notable Malaysian films, including Ola Bola, The Journey, Paskal, Polis Evo, and Hantu Kak Limah, which have achieved unimaginable box office success beyond anyone's dreams.

Alvin Teoh, Chief Creative Officer of Naga DDB Tribal, said This docu-story was years in the making, I was inspired by stories from my father, an artillery officer, who served side by side with soldiers of all creeds and colours during the Daururat and Konfrantasi
