Yes, that is the question.
The Belacan household managed to be Astro-less all this while, so why now the question? Well, blame it on my many hotel stays for work and the latest was our Awana Kijal trip. The biggest baby in the house, that's me (ahem), just lurrrvvveeesss National Geographic, Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. For the Astro buffs, that's the Learning Mini-Package.
If I do take up Astro, I think I will also subscribe for the News Mini-Package comprising of CNN, CNBC Asia, Astro News and BBC World. I like CNBC Asia and BBC World.
I would have been satisfied with the channels above but since the package price list for monthly subscription of RM49.95 requires me to take up 3 mini packages, I am at the crossroads attempting to select the last mini package. I am torn between the Fun Mini-Package, which is mainly cartoons, and the Sports Mini-Package.
At present, I am likely to select the Sports package rather than the Fun package because I am afraid that my girls, especially Suzanne, would be glued to the cartoons too much. The Belacan household does not intend to employ Astro as the in-house babysitter, you know what I mean? Although it would have been very easy for us parents to do so, especially when we are busy with the various house chores, hehehe. ;)
Up to 31st July, Astro is offering new subscibers RM199 for the decoder plus free installation (of up to RM100). Tempting.... very tempting....
So, should the Belacan household subscribe with Astro? All comments are welcomed.
