Astro has announced that Disney will discontinue certain linear channels in our region after September 30, 2021. According to sources, this is part of its strategy to promote its streaming services instead. This is following Disney’s acquisition of all 21st Century Fox’s film and TV assets in 2019.
Due to this, channels such as Fox, Fox Life, FX, Fox Movies, Fox Action Movies, Fox Family Movies, Fox Sports, Fox Sports 2, Fox Sports 3 and Nat Geo People will no longer be available on Astro after this month.
The Fox Sports channels are where the broadcasting of MotoGP live races take place. However, Astro has confirmed that customers will still be able to watch this via new channels.
As part of its replacement, Astro has added three new channels, namely Astro SuperSport 5, Astro Arena 2, and SPOTV from October 1, 2021, with no extra cost. Fans will be able to watch live broadcasts of MotoGP on SPOTV.
