The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is underway and Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd is offering new ways for you to enjoy the biggest sporting event in the world.

It has multiple avenues for fans to get their kick. Those who want updates, fixtures, highlights, videos and games, can head to, the company’s main home for the World Cup.

Those who prefer to use an app, can check out Astro Go 2014 FIFA World Cup, Astro on the Go or Ola Bola Football Predictor.

The Go 2014 app  will allow fans to watch all 64 matches live and users will be able to use its Multi Camera function to view replays from six different angles. There are also Timeline and Event Markers for fans to watch match highlights.

The app, which is free for Android and iOS, contains match information, statistics and over 4,000 on-demand video clips.

However, to fully enjoy all of its services, users need to purchase a Football Pass for RM100. Those who have been subscribing to the Astro Sports package before April 2014 will get the Pass for free.

Those who just want a simple viewing experience, can opt for the On the Go app which streams all 64 matches live. Astro subscribers will get to watch all the matches while non-subscribers will be limited to 30 matches, and can opt to view a game at an additional cost of RM6 each.  The app is available for free for Android and iOS platforms.

The third app, Ola Bola Football Predictor for Android and iOS, allows users to make predictions such as free kicks, corners and penalty kicks during an ongoing match. Users who get it right will score points and the one with the most points at the end of the event will walk away with a Foosball table.

Finally, those who want to create their own dream team can try out Stadium Astro Fantasy #OlaBola Edition. Astro says there are great prizes in store for successful fantasy football managers.
