SPE signs carriage deal with StarHub TV for Singapore

MUMBAI: SPE Networks – Asia (SPENA) has entered into a distribution deal with StarHub TV, to expanded their distribution in Singapore for One, SPENA’s first Asian general entertainment channel and its high-definition (HD) feed One HD.

With the deal in place, One and One HD will be available to StarHub TV customers from 9 April on channels 823 and 876 respectively in the Chinese Entertainment Basic Group. 
The channels present Korean dramas, with some premiering within weeks of their debut broadcasts in South Korea.

“One is the first and exclusive destination of shows produced by SBS through its supply deal with the Seoul-based content supplier and broadcaster. Apart from drama series, One and One HD promise to titillate audiences with the hippest K-pop variety, reality and music programmes,” the company said.

To cater to audiences in Singapore, programmes on the channels will be subtitled in Chinese. In addition, viewers can watch a two-hour primetime programme dubbed in Mandarin. 
One will be available to all StarHub TV customers via a free preview from 9 April to 6 May. One HD can be sampled by StarHub TV customers with the HD Interactive set-top box or HubStation HD from 9 April to 30 September.

“We are confident One and One HD will be a hit in Singapore where Korean entertainment is massively popular. By offering the channel in Chinese and in HD format, our content will appeal to a large base of viewers here. With One HD already the No. 1 rated HD channel in Malaysia, we look forward to working with StarHub to replicate that success for One in Singapore,” said SPENA Sr VP and GM Ricky Ow.
