As a football fan, it’s great that we have plenty of options to watch 2018 FIFA World Cup matches – both paid and free. As you know, if you’re an Astro subscriber you’re all set, but even if you aren’t there are paid options like Astro’s World Cup Channel Pass and Maxis’ exclusive offer of MYR1 per match for its subscribers; and selected free matches over Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM). You can also live stream it over the RTM Mobile app for free.
It’s great if you’re able to catch up on the latest matches on-the-go via your smartphone. But what if you’re at home, have no access to terrestrial TV or Astro but want to watch it on a big screen?
Once you’ve clicked the play button, you’ll find a cast icon at the bottom right of the video. Click on the icon and select your cast device. That’s it!
Usage is free and no registration is required.
Casting works on Android or a PC with a Chrome browser. The bad news is it doesn’t work for Safari or Chrome browsers for iOS. And by the way, casting also works if you access MyKlik via Chrome from your Windows PC.
