Please let me know if you could share my frustration after reading below........
1) Astro (the ONLY pay TV in Malaysia) was going to increase their fees effective next month.... sigh
2)Astro has the sole license for satellite Pay TV service until year 2017....sigh no 2..
3) India and Indonesia has six satellite TV Channels respectively and one particular Pay TV station only charges about less than RM10 a month for 155 channels.......How much you pay for your Astro? sigh no 3
4)The repetition of the programmes of Astro is sickening....sigh no 4
5)The commercial breaks also very frustrating too, you pay money and you get the same amount of commercial just like the free for all TV stations... sigh no 5
6) If "big big" rain, then you see this, "Nothing" .......sigh no 6
7) If you earn RM2000 a month, and if you pay like RM120 a month for Astro's services, that is taking away 6 % every month from you....sigh no 7
OK, you might say...Eugene nobody asks you to subscribe to Astro what? I agree, totally agree but in this age of globalization, why are we still being "victimized" by the so called monopoly ?
If the gomen really wants us to feel like we are heading to become part of developed country, then i think it must be "fair level" playing field,kan?
By the way, I am seriously considering terminating my Astro service, buy myself a LED TV with HTMI ports, downloads nice nice movies, wire it to my 42 inch LED TV from the hard disk...read the news online, watch my favorite Tennis on line too.......
Note : Can you do without ASTRO?
Have a great weekend and God Bless.
P/S : The money is getting smaller now
