Astro Njoi is a Malaysian pay-TV service provider owned and operated by MEASAT Broadcast Network Systems. It is Malaysia’s first Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite TV service using the global standard DVB-S2 platform and offers HDTV services.
Astro Njoi provides its users with a viewing card and a receiver, which is used to decode the channels that are beamed via Measat 3 satellite located at 91.5°E.
Although Astro Njio offers quality service to its users, you will enjoy it more by connecting it to your Wi-Fi. This way, you will be able to use other online services for a more immersive experience.
Here is a quick guide on how you can connect your Astro Njoi to Wi-Fi:
