mioTV launches new channels

MUMBAI: SingTel has announced that Sundance Channel and WE tv will be available for the first time in Asia on its mio TV platform in Singapore on Channel 51 and 24 respectively.

The channels will be available to mio TV customers from 7 December in both standard and high-definition with Mandarin subtitles with both 24/7 linear and SVOD offerings available.
Says mio TV VP Tim Carmichael, “Sundance Channel is a valuable addition to mio TV’s suite of channels and will most certainly cause a buzz among lovers of independent films and the Sundance brand’s unique programming. We are very pleased and excited about being the first platform to carry this well-respected channel in Asia.”

Sundance delivers programming drawn from categories such as independent or art-house film and other entertainment and culture, fashion, intriguing people, pop culture and/or leisure, and the world of art. Programming on the channel is a mix of independent films and series focusing on celebrities, ecology, music, fashion and travel.
Avers Redford, “Sundance Channel is a destination to discover new voices, new points of view, and new personalities; it also strives to be uniquely entertaining. Through the power of popular culture, Sundance Channel programming can provoke thought and foster understanding of worlds apart from our own. All of this makes the launch of Sundance Channel in Singapore particularly exciting and important to me.”

WE tv is Singapore’s first lifestyle channel exclusively dedicated to women. Currently available in nearly 74 million homes in the US, WE tv is the source for progressive, confident women looking to satisfy their curiosity with original stories.
