Customers pay only for what they choose to watch
Singapore, 27 June 2005 – Movie buffs will have a new and convenient option to watch recently released movies in the comfort of their homes whenever they want! Starting tomorrow, 28 June 2005, Digital Cable customers can select a movie, a preferred viewing slot and catch the show without stepping out of their living rooms! As with watching movies in the cinemas, they only pay for what they choose to watch. All these are possible with StarHub Digital Cable’s launch of Demand TV, Singapore’s only Near Video-On-Demand service on television.
Demand TV will offer award-winning or critically acclaimed independent movies, and Hollywood blockbusters. There will be an average of 10 titles to choose from at any one time, and these will be scheduled over 20 Demand TV channels (StarHub Channels 120 to 139). Each movie will be aired in different timeslots, with intervals ranging from 30 minutes to two hours. One new title will be added to replace an older one at the beginning of each week.
“Each customer has unique needs. With that in mind, StarHub has constantly been enhancing our cable TV offerings. Today, we are one of the very few cable operators in the world that offer customers a say in the channels that form their basic tiers. The introduction of Demand TV is further proof of our commitment to give customers flexibility, choice and control. With Demand TV, consumers can enjoy a chosen programme at their most convenient time, for a very affordable price. Demand TV further sets apart StarHub Digital Cable from other local service providers, offering yet another dimension to viewing pleasure unmatched by anyone else in Singapore,” said Ms Sandie Lee, StarHub’s Senior Vice President, Cable TV Services.
Customers of Demand TV will catch
the first-ever airing of the movies on local television, as StarHub
will schedule the films as soon as three to six months after their
theatrical releases in Singapore. For a start, viewers can catch

Dates, White Chicks and Secret Window. They can also
look forward to award-winning or critically acclaimed
titles from around the world including Les Choristes
