Help and FAQs


1. What is NJOI Now?

NJOI Now is an over-the-top service that gives you complete and free access to a selection of TV channels (such as Astro Awani, Astro Prima, Astro AEC etc) and video-on-demand (VOD). This means that you can watch the channel or VOD title of your choice on either your mobile phone, your laptop, desktop or tablet.

At this juncture, you will be able to have complete access to 18 free channels and about 15 boxsets of free VOD content at any one time without ever having to pay any access or subscription fee. Unlike many other OTT offerings that are essentially a subscription service for longer term access (for instance free-for-first-month, free-for-the-first-few-episodes etc), NJOI Now is essentially a free-OTT service offering you free access to home-grown news, education, entertainment and sports. Included in the forever-free access is selected VOD content, where you will have complete box sets for your viewing pleasure. In addition, for selected titles being shown on the channels, you will have the ability to catch-up on missed episodes, for free.  

NJOI Now gives you the ability to watch your favourite Astro content and more on your computer, tablet, and smartphone – anytime and anywhere in the country.  With NJOI Now you get:

  • Broadcast TV Channels – Don't miss what's on TV just because you’re not at home. Catch shows on your favourite channels via your devices anytime, anywhere.
