ASTRO Malaysia Holdings Bhd is celebrating the country’s 65th Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day with the best Malaysian stories and entertainment of over 150 favourite titles on Gemilang Channel 100.
The channel is complimentary for all Astro customers from Aug 21 to Sept 18, 2022, with shows
including variety, drama, documentaries, movies, telemovies, short films and kids genres.
Astro group CEO Henry Tan said as proud Malaysians, Astro hopes to inspire our nation to come together and stand strong, as visualised by the hands representing the multiple races which are intertwined with our national colours — Blue for Unity, Red for Bravery, White for Purity and Yellow for Loyalty.
“These are the shared values that banded Malaysians together since the birth of our nation and will continue to be our north star.
“Our Gemilang Bersama video features Nurin Amalin, a 19-year-old para-athlete, who lost her sight when she was 10. Through Nurin we see the true meaning of these colours and the values they each represent.”
