Good news for Astro GO app user as the company is enabling users to download their favourite shows to watch offline anywhere. However, users need to take note that only more than 85% of all content on the app can be downloaded and enjoyed offline by Astro GO users.
Astro has confirmed the download function is available for iOS, Android and Huawei devices. But the software update for the new download function will be rolled out in batches to users. All downloaded movies will be retained on the device for two days while each TV series episode will be retained for seven days. Expired content will be automatically deleted from the app, freeing up device storage for more new downloads.
To download a show to watch offline, just search for the content and then click on the “Download” button. Users will also be able to choose the download quality (Higher, Standard and Lower) for all content. There will be no limits on the number of downloaded content, and customers can choose to download the same shows as many times as they wish.
