Singapore's StarHub kills seven more analog channels in digital migration

Darren Murph

Not quite two years after StarHub brought HDTV to Singapore, the firm has just announced that it pulled the plug on seven more analog channels as it looks to migrate its customers to digital. The affected channels, which include Cinemax and NHK World Premium, have now moved solely to the company's digital tier, forcing subscribers to fork over $4 per month to rent a digital set-top-box if they wish to continue viewing said stations. Currently, those content with analog can only tune into 39 channels, but that number is expected to shrink further in the near future. The way we see it, the move makes more room for HD expansion -- needless to say, that's a-okay with us.
