FIC rolls out HD options on StarHub TV

MUMBAI: Singapore pay TV platform StarHub‘s subscribers of the Lifestyle and Chinese Entertainment Basic Groups can now enjoy FX and tvN at no extra charge.

Fox International Channels (FIC) and StarHub have announced that the two entertainment and lifestyle channels will now be re-tiered to their respective basic groups. To further enhance the audience‘s viewing experience, FIC will also launch two more channels in HD format—Fox Family Movies HD and tvN HD from 28 November.

FX is looking at bolder and edgier content that pushes the boundaries of television. In the month of November, viewers can look forward to the exclusive premiere of dark comedy ‘It‘s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘, when the American television sitcom returns for its fifth season.

Drama series ‘Mad Men‘ will also debut its third season on FX.

Korean entertainment channel tvN will air the 2011 Mnet Asian Music Award on 29 November 2011 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Singapore will be the second overseas country outside of South Korea to present the major music awards show.

StarHub subscribers can also catch the showcase of artistes from South Korea and the pyrotechnics on the tvN HD channel. tvN HD, which is a simulcast channel to tvN in high definition format, is available for free preview to Chinese Entertainment Basic Group customers with the HubStation HD or HD Interactive set-top box from 28 November till 30 June 2012.

Fox Family Movies will follow suit with the introduction of its HD format in Fox Family Movies HD, under the Star Movies Pack. Available across Asia in dual-language English and Mandarin, Fox Family Movies is home to family films, such as â€?Aladdin‘, â€?Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert‘ and â€?Alice in Wonderland‘ from Hollywood studios.

Fox International Channels senior VP, GM Southeast Asia Avinash Himatsinghani said, "FX and tvN‘s being re-tiered to their respective basic groups is a testament to the high quality entertainment content offered by FOX International Channels and expanding availability to an even larger group of viewers in Singapore. As Asia‘s leading pay TV network, FIC aims to entertain audiences across all demographics and on all platforms. In addition, with the launching of new high definition channels such as tvN HD and FOX Family Movies HD, FIC remains the leading provider of HD services to audiences across the region and in Singapore".
