Heads-up StarHub subscribers -- MediaCorp HD5
is getting set to launch on July 28th, just in time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics
to begin in August. Additionally, users can expect to see Sports HD (slot 304) starting on August 14th, which will provide access to high-def versions of 92 Barclays Premier League matches and weekly US PGA Tour events. On the upside, said station will be added gratis; however, HD Showcase will be removed when this one launches. Aside from the baffling switcheroo, we are pleased to hear that StarHub is aiming to offer five high-definition channels before 2009 dawns, though there's no word on what other two will (hopefully) join later this year.
