Singtel Adds HBO Asia Channels


HBO Asia’s six channels have been added to Singtel’s entertainment lineup, while its streaming service, HBO GO, will soon be available on CAST, the telco’s video app.

HBO Asia’s six channels are available on Singtel TV and its companion mobile app, Singtel TV GO. Singtel TV customers can preview the premium channels for free in the month of February. Following the free preview, HBO Pak will be available as an add-on for S$13.98 ($10.40) monthly. HBO GO comes to CAST, Singtel’s video app for mobile and smart TV sets, this March, also for S$13.98 monthly.

“We’re thrilled to welcome HBO to our entertainment lineup and we’re pleased to offer our customers a month-long free preview just in time for the Lunar New Year holidays,” said Yuen Kuan Moon, CEO of Consumer Singapore at Singtel. “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!”

Jonathan Spink, CEO of HBO Asia, added, “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 U.S.”
