StarHub unveils OTT service
August 13, 2015
Singapore pay-TV operator StarHub has launched a new online streaming service – StarHub Go – which it says extends pay-TV reach with added flexibility. The service offers a selection of the most popular StarHub TV content delivered on demand, over-the-top, and on any device, enabling customers to access their favourite programmes at their convenience.
Customers can choose to sign up to a basic StarHub Go subscription at $9.90 (€6.37), or upgrade to Go Premium and Go Sports at $19.90 and $24.90 respectively. At launch, StarHub Go customers can look forward to titles from content partners such as Discovery Networks, HBO, A+E Networks, Scripps Networks Interactive, Sony Pictures Television and TVB. All StarHub Post-paid customers including Mobile and Broadband customers, can enjoy the convenience of charging their StarHub Go Pack subscriptions to their existing monthly bills, while non-StarHub customers can pay for an unlimited access with a 30-day pass on StarHub Go via their credit cards.
“In our highly-connected nation, we recognise that consumers are increasingly accessing a wide variety of digital content across multiple devices,” commented Lin Shu Fen, Head of Entertainment & SmartLife, StarHub. “Therefore, the introduction of StarHub Go—with its carefully-curated line-up along with a superior viewing experience—is specially designed to address customers’ needs for an over-the-top streaming service. To top it off, StarHub Mobile customers can even enjoy streaming on the go without having to worry about data charges. With the addition of StarHub Go, StarHub will now offer unparalleled flexibility to new customer segments with our entertainment offerings,” she declared.
Together with the three new Packs – Go Basic, Go Premium, Go Sports, viewers will be able to binge-watch on their favourite TV series, and catch their favourite sports and education programmes at their convenience.
