I just received an email from Astro NJOI welcomes you back!. It looks like Astro is reaching out to their ex-subscribers and offering to re-activate Astro account for a contract-free NJOI with no monthly bills.
A few days back, I received a text message on my phone from Astro telling me that they are opening all 49 TV and radio channels, and more info is coming to my email or their agent will call me soon. So today, when I check my email, I saw this:

As stated in the email above, I need to have all 4 items in working condition to be able to enjoy this offer. Luckily, I still keep them in the recycle bin.
So, what does this mean is, if I don’t have all these 4 items, all these will cost me RM405 (at the time of writing this post). This price includes 6% of the service tax and RM100 of the installation fee.

If you read my post about how and why I terminate my Astro account, you should know that I was very disappointed with Astro.
Either their technical service or customer service on Facebook page has the ability to annoy customers in multiple ways.
However, with NJOI Prepaid, it looks slightly makes sense now. I can watch all the channels listed above for free. And if I want to watch premium content, I can buy the NJOI Prepaid from selected outlets or online banking at any time.
