As usual, customers have also complained about the issue on social media including a user watching via the Astro TV app. Most of them have the error message displaying “Streaming session failed – Connection was interrupted. Press [back] and play the programme again. If problem persist, please check your network.”
If you try watching on Astro Go, the app will display a message “Astro GO Server is busy – Our servers are experiencing high traffic right now (Code 500), Please wait while we try to reconnect you.”
