Singtel TV adds HBO

January 31, 2019

From February 1st, HBO Asia’s six channels will be available on Singtel TV and its companion mobile app, Singtel TV GO. To celebrate the launch, all HBO channels will be available on free preview for all Singtel TV customers for the entire month of February.

HBO GO, HBO Asia’s streaming service, will be available from March 15th through CAST, Singtel’s video app for mobile and smart TV sets.

“We’re thrilled to welcome HBO to our entertainment line-up and we’re pleased to offer our customers a month-long free preview just in time for the Lunar New Year holidays. This partnership marks a significant milestone in our efforts to offer the best and most comprehensive range of content in Singapore, which is accessible across mobile, broadband and TV. We know that many of our customers are looking forward to the final season of Game of Thrones which premieres in April and I am equally excited to learn the fate of the Iron Throne,” said Yuen Kuan Moon, CEO, Consumer Singapore, Singtel.

With the introduction of HBO, Singtel TV continues to expand its content offerings following the addition of eight channels in 2018. These include Discovery Networks’ trio of lifestyle channels and the launch of its second in-house Asian entertainment channel, e-Le.

Along with the final chapter of Game of Thrones, customers can look forward to more of HBO’s most popular shows including Westworld and True Detective.

“We are delighted to launch all six of our HBO branded channels and our On-Demand service on Singtel TV, from Hollywood blockbusters and critically-acclaimed HBO Original series on HBO, to action-packed movies and series on CINEMAX and Asian stories on RED BY HBO,” said Jonathan Spink, CEO of HBO Asia. “With this new partnership with Singtel, more subscribers in Singapore will now have access to the best Hollywood movies and award-winning HBO Original content from Asia and the US.”
