Around 1 minute before the channel ceases, it aired several programmes advertisements, followed by one of the Astro Hitz channel ident. On 12.00am sharp, the channel suddenly appeared a message with blue background with the text "Please be informed Astro HITZ has ceased transmission" (see picture above). The process of the ending was pretty odd, but this is how it happened.
Astro Hitz is Malaysian music video channel provided by Astro, where it broadcasts English music videos most of the time. The channel was launched back in 20 October 2003 and serves as a visual entertainment complement of hitz.fm.
