Thanks to Nuffnang who invited me for attend such a great event.

Just in case you didn’t already know, Astro recently launched Astro B.yond, a new entertainment experience starting with the first High Definition broadcast in Malaysia. Home entertainment will never be the same with Astro B.yond. Don’t trust me, see it yourself as Astro invites me to Astro B.yond Bloggers Night.

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

Refreshments will be provided for and they have 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 to give out along with free subscription to Astro B.yond channels!

HD channels present a sensory viewing experience with sharper pictures, more vibrant colours, cinematic surround sound, and a wider screen – giving audiences crystal clear details and colours like never before. It delivers details that are five times greater than that of regular Standard-Definition (SD) programming (the standard shows we are watching on Malaysian TV are SD), and it comes with the 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound.

ASTRO has launched the HD service under its brand name ASTRO B.yond. HD broadcasting had been around ages ago. Australia started its HD broadcasting since 2001. If not for ASTRO, HD broadcasting would not have seen light in Malaysia.

I’m not a fan of football and the last yumcha session that I had with my friend + watching world cup is around last 5years. Not really remember world up or euro =.=”
So this time, FIFA World Cup 2010 will also be in HD.
(hint for yumcha session after 5years! XD)

On HD content, ASTRO will start with four HD channels: ASTRO Supersport HD, HBO HD, National Geographic Channel HD & HISTORY HD on 18 December 2009, followed by ESPN HD in January 2010.

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.
