Customer astro sume tentu dah sedia maklum bahawa channel Astro Kirana (channel 122) dah takde lagi. Aku pun sentap bagai la.. mana taknya, sudahla rancangan2 channel local yang lain banyak yg hampeh, pstu sesedap rasa la discontinue channel feveret aku kan? So bila dah sedar perasaan teraniaya tu semakin menebal (ewah) dgn rasa x puas hati aku pun cari penjelasan dari astro ttg penutupan channel kirana ni. Dan explanation diorg betul2 membuatkan aku rasa mcm nak wat chicken dance!!! (dipetik dpd Astro).
Q. When will/did Astro begin the removal of Astro Kirana Channel (122) from its platform?
The removal will be/was from 18 May 2009 onwards.
Q. Why did Astro decide to remove the Astro Kirana Channel from its platform?
Kirana was offered as a preview channel at no additional cost for a limited period of time to our customers. Channels are tested on a preview basis to enable us to establish appeal and segmental relevance upon which these channels will be slotted into the relevant package eventually. Research shows that Kirana has been receiving poor rating and low viewership. As such we have decided to remove Kirana wef 18 May from the Astro platform. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The viewership of Astro Kirana Channel has been declining of late. Its channel share is also low at 2% compared to RIA at 12%.
Q. Will Astro be reducing the cost of its family package now that they have removed the Astro Kirana Channel?
No. Kirana was introduced on Astro platform as preview channel at no additional cost for limited time. As such the issue of price reduction does not arise.
Q. Will Astro be bringing the Kirana Channel back on its platform?
We do not have plans to bring the channel back at this point. However, we will keep our customers informed, should we plan to do so.
Q. Will Astro be introducing more news channels under its free view/preview?
Preview channels on Astro’s platform is only offered as free view basis for a limited time only. However, we are constantly looking at opportunities to offer our customers with more choices of relevant and premium content on our platform. At this point we do not have plans to introduce more preview channels in the near future. However, when we do introduce new channels, we will keep our customers informed.
Amboi.....!!!!!! Sedap sgtkan astro ni? Bila tengok channel tak banyak org tengok, suka2 dia la nak tutup mcm tu kan? Hei! 2% pun kira la brp banyak proportion dpd jumlah penonton yg ada, bukan main sebarang hentam jek! Mana korang tau dalam jumlah tu langsung takde penonton setia? Alasan korg bgtau channel tu sbg medium utk preview mmg tak masuk akal, korg tak sedar ke citer2 yg korg main kat channel tu dulu citer yg brp kurun sudah punya? Nak buat preview bukak channel lain la weh, astro box office tu takde plak korg nak sebok2 preview kan? Kalau kirana yg 'free' tu pun dah dpt 2% viewer je, korg bleh bayangkan tak box office tu brp kerat je yg tengok? Ada korg tutup?
Tu tak abis lagi.. semlm tah mcm mana tetiba aku terbukak channel yg baru diorg bukak. Channel 130, nama Mustika (nama bukan main). Bila aku check, rupanya mustika ni adalah pakej baru yg akan diperkenalkan astro lepas ni. (dipetik dpd Thestar)
"Mustika Pack is a new pay TV package comprising three new channels – Astro Citra (channel 131), Astro Warna (channel 132) and B4U (channel 133) – and priced at RM12.95 per month."
“Astro Warna offers comedy while Astro Citra is the Malaysian version of the HBO channel providing Asian blockbuster movies, Malay premieres, and Malay epic series.
“And with B4U, subscribers will be able to access the latest box-office Bollywood movies and music,” she said, adding that all movies on B4U would have Bahasa Malaysia subtitles to appeal to a bigger audience.
Kaannnn.. nak bukak pakej baru rupanya!!! So, lepas dah jelas dan nyata berdolak dalih.. astro nak kata apa lagi pasni? One day korg jgn terkejut bila tetiba astro ria, prima, oasis, ceria dan semua2 channel yg diorg buat tu tetiba ditutup atas alasan "it was offered as preview channel". Pastu nanti diorg asingkan la satu channel tu utk satu pakej! Boley?! Biasala, astro kan takde saingan sbb tu diorg naik minyak sgt agaknya. Mungkin SKMM boleh buat smtg? Takkan nak report kat tribunal tuntutan pengguna plak kot? *pengsannnnnn!!!!
