MUMBAI: Star's 24-hour general entertainment channel for Mainland China, Xing Xong has been launched in Singapore on StarHub CableTV channel 105.

Featuring 900 hours of original programming each year, Xing Xong distinguishes itself with bold and innovative programmes showcasing a wide range of Mandarin entertainment including variety shows, game shows, drama series, movies and music.

Star chief operating officer Steve Askew said, "We are excited to further enrich our offering of top programming choices for Singapore audiences with the launch of Xing Xong on StarHub CableTV's digital platform. The Singapore audience can now look forward to a new league in television entertainment in Xing Xong's innovative and popular Mandarin shows."

"StarHub and Star are long-standing partners. With the latest addition of Xing Xong to our line-up, StarHub CableTV now carries as many as ten Star channels on our digital platform. StarHub will continue to work with established and quality content providers like Star, to provide the best TV viewing experience for our customers," said StarHub senior vice president (cable TV services) Sandie Lee.
