Who We Are

Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad is a leading integrated consumer media entertainment group in Malaysia and Southeast Asia with operations in 4 key areas of business, namely Pay-TV, Radio, Digital Publications and Digital Media.

With a customer base of over 3.7 million residential customers or approximately 55% penetration of Malaysian TV households, Astro offers over 171 TV channels, including 39 HD channels, delivered via Direct-To- Home satellite TV, IPTV and OTT platforms. Astro provides HD, 3D, PVR, VOD and IPTV services through Astro B.yond and Astro On-The-Go. Fulfilling its promise to bridge the digital divide for all of Malaysia, Astro introduced NJOI as an entry-level DTH satellite TV service and is the country’s first non-subscription based satellite TV, offering 22 TV and 20 radio channels.

Astro Radio is Malaysia’s No.1 radio operator with a weekly listener base of 12.2 million, delivering the No.1 stations in all 4 languages.

The People’s Choice, Astro was awarded the Putra Brand Awards Gold for the Media & Entertainment Category for 4 consecutive years. The award is in recognition of Astro’s efforts to exemplify innovation, quality and strong corporate social responsibilities.

We are honoured to be recognized as one of the leading employers in the broadcasting/ media sector for 3 consecutive years.

This year we have embarked on a structured management trainee programme, the Astro Management Associate Programme (MAP), which is part of our larger and robust succession planning. Over 60% of our employees are Gen Y-ers, contributing to a vibrant and talented workforce. We envision our Management Associates to be part of the key leadership team in the future. As such, the 2-year programme has been carefully crafted and developed with wellrounded and accelerated job rotation, which provide our management associates with a full depth and breadth of the business. We are also Malaysia’s first management trainee programme that collaborates with Teach For Malaysia as part of the rotation.

Astro is an equal opportunity employer. Staff are rewarded according to the quality of their contribution and zeal to make a difference at Astro.
