  Singapore, 14 December 2012 – StarHub has announced the addition of 10 more channels on www.starhubtv.com , from 18 December.  These additions bring the total number of channels on TV Anywhere to 3 6 , a threefold increase from 12 available at its launch in June this year. All 3 6 channels are offered to StarHub TV customers as part of the TV Anywhere service.

The 10 new channels - including five new High Definition (HD) channels - have something for everyone: kids and comedy fans, drama aficionados and sports fanatics. They are Cartoon Network (StarHub TV CH 316), Toonami (StarHub TV Ch 315), momoKids Asia (StarHub TV Ch 321), Discovery Science (StarHub TV Ch 423), and China Business Network (StarHub TV Ch 809), while the HD channels are Comedy Central Asia HD (StarHub TV Ch 563), Discovery HD World (StarHub TV Ch 461), and KBS World HD (StarHub TV Ch 875). To provide customers with a superior viewing experience, Travel Channel HD (StarHub TV Ch 473) and Ginx HD (StarHub TV Ch 475) will also be introduced to the TV anywhere line-up, replacing their Standard Definition (SD) versions that are currently available.

With 36 channels readily accessible on TV Anywhere, customers can look forward to catching a buffet of exciting channels like KMTV (StarHub TV Ch 846), a round-the-clock Korean channel with a focus on music and live performances, variety shows and idol dramas, and Comedy Central Asia HD, Singapore’s first and only 24-hour all-comedy channel. Viewers can also enjoy the latest TVB titles such as The Confidant and Witness Insecurity on demand.
