“The set-up of our IPTV concept store is designed for visitors to understand the IPTV experience and realise their aspirations for a truly digital home entertainment experience,” said Liew Swee Lin, the chief commercial officer of Astro Malaysia.

At the concept store, visitors can discover the advantages of the IPTV service as well as to test and experience the 30Mbps high-speed fibre broadband connectivity.
