Nat Geo Wild to launch on Singapore pay TV platform StarHub

MUMBAI: StarHub, which claims to be Singapore’s largest pay-TV operator, will launch five more channels on 2 October 2006. They are National Geographic Wild, Sky News, Channel [V] International, Fox Crime and Boomerang.

They will be added to the Family Plus digital group at no extra cost.

National Geographic Wild will air documentaries entirely focussed on the animal kingdom and the worlds they inhabit. From the most remote environments, the forbidding depths of our oceans, to the protected parks in our backyards.

National Geographic Wild uses cinematography and spellbinding storytelling to take viewers on unforgettable journeys into the wild world and to experience the best, most intimate encounters with wildlife ever seen on television.

Channel [V] International features music videos and singers, reality and infotainment shows. Viewers can catch VJs such as Sarah, Maya, Dominic and Joey on this channel. It has shows such as Remote Control, Popparazzi, Arcade and The Ticket.

Fox Crime is dedicated to crime, investigation and mystery. It is the ultimate channel where viewers will find all shadows of crime and investigation stories.

Sky News is a news channel from the UK. Boomerang features animated entertainment, drawing from content of Hanna-Barbera, Warner Brothers and MGM. Boomerang will not only provide another choice for kids content under the Cartoon Network banner, but also nostalgic moments for parents who wish to catch the legends of cartoon history such as Flintstones, Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, Wacky Races, The Jetsons and Top Cat.

StarHub VP, cable TV services Patrick Lim says, “StarHub is constantly working towards providing better products and services, and creating more value to our customers, and we are very excited with all that we have in store for our cable TV customers, in particular those on the digital platform.

"We hope that this addition of five quality channels to Family Plus, coupled with other new offerings to be rolled out on 2 October, will encourage those who have yet to enjoy StarHub Digital Cable to sign up and join the fun, and also provide more incentive to our analogue customers to make the switch to the digital platform so that they too can enjoy these great benefits.”
