SingTel launch includes Equator HD, a documentary channel about people, places
and cultures of the world with a special focus on protecting the environment.
Sling HD is a teen oriented co-venture of Voom HD and Singapore media company
Mega Media with content encompassing computer games, virtual reality and extreme
sports. WorldSport HD is a video-on-demand (VOD) service featuring sports documentaries
and select arena sporting events from around the world. Voom HD offers a perspective
on adventure travel, fashion, luxury lifestyle, art and music. |
far as PCCW is concerned while viewers are initially receiving the programming
in standard definition (SD), the channel will be available in HD very soon, commencing
with PCCW's launch broadcast of English Premiere League football. Both SingTel
and PCCW launches fulfill the agreements facilitated earlier this year by Gang
TV preisdent Gregory Ang who represents Voom HD Networks in Southeast Asia.
Ang says, "Voom
developed its international channels with not only the clear objective to reach
a global audience, but also the solid understanding of a marketplace in transition.
As Voom continues to identify and fill the world's HD content void, I have enjoyed
being part of its initial progress into Asia and look forward to seeing its continued
first distribution in Asia began last September when a daily, two-hour branded
block debuted on Skylifes Sky HD, South Koreas first and only full-time
HD programming service.
