Astro B.yond - The Future of Home Entertainment

(This is a 48-hour sticky post, scroll down for updates!)

It's amazing how television has evolved over the years, from fat bulky TV to flat screen....


From black and white to color TV, from analogue transmission to digital, and from free-to-air broadcasting to multi-channel broadcasting. The evolution didn't stop there.

Astro has just recently launched Astro B.yond, Malaysia's first High-Definition broadcast. It's the future of home entertainment; the next big thing. It's probably as big as the evolution from black-and-white TV to color!

Astro B.yond will change TV viewing experiences 5 times greater than the regular Standard-Definition (SD) in all aspects. It delivers sharper pictures, more vibrant colors, cinematic surround sound and wider screen, giving audiences crystal clear details and colors like never before.

It's so detailed and crystal clear that cosmetic application on actors and actresses are easily visible in HD. And bcoz of that, cosmetic companies like Make Up For Ever and MAC had to create a line of makeup specifically for it.
