KUCHING: Astro will be reorganising its channel numbers on April 1 to provide its customers with a better viewing experience on all platforms including Astro GO and NJOI.

The more 100 HD channels will be moved to higher positions for easier and quicker access, it said in a media statement issued yesterday.

An easy way to find the corresponding HD/SD channels would be to look at the number of the HD channel and just add 20 (+40 for Chinese channels).

For example; Astro RIA HD will now be on Channel 104 while Astro RIA will now be on Channel 124 (104+20 from Astro RIA HD). 

HBO HD will now be on Channel 411 while HBO will now be on Channel 431 (411+20 from HBO HD). 

Customers can also find the full channel numbers here: WhatsApp – WhatsApp ‘Hi’ to +603 9543 3838 and following the menu choose the option for “New Channel Numbers”.
