Sony Pictures TV adds One to StarHub TV in Singapore

MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Television‘s networks, Asia, is expanding distribution of One (Malay) in Singapore with a third feed of its first Asian entertainment channel launching on StarHub TV.

Debuting on 22 July, the Malay language localised One joins Mandarin-Chinese localised standard and high definition (HD) channels, One and One HD, on the cable TV platform.

Prior to the launch of One (Malay) in Singapore, the Malay language-localised One HD has already proven to be very successful in Malaysia where it is the No.1-rated HD channel since 1 January 2011.

With a focus on top South Korean entertainment, One offers programmes produced by Seoul-based content supplier and broadcaster SBS through an output deal. ONE offers viewers in Singapore some of the latest Korean drama series, with selected titles premiering 3- 5 weeks after their debut broadcasts in South Korea. In addition, the hippest K-pop variety and music programmes complement the channel‘s drama line-up.

Working with StarHub TV, we are glad to share the joys of the latest and finest Korean content in Malay localisation. The launch of One (Malay) is perfectly timed to add to the fun and festivities leading up to the Hari Raya Aidil Fitri celebrations".

Airing its shows with Malay language subtitling and a Malay dubbed programming block during primetime, One (Malay) is being rolled out as part of StarHub TV‘s ‘One Sensation Pack‘. At launch, One (Malay) will be available for a two-week free preview for all StarHub TV customers.
