StarHub TV Singapore


StarHub Cable Vision Limited is the sole cable television operator in Singaporemarker. A subsidiary of StarHub Limited, when StarHub acquired Singapore Cable Vision (SCV) in 2002, and now assumes ownership over the S$600 million broadband infrastructure built across the country by September 1999.

The company offers cable television services via the cable network which has been in operation since June 1995, but now under the name StarHub TV. It also provides this service via a wireless network, the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTTV) system.

The history of cable TV in Singapore started in June 1995 when the then Singapore Cable Vision (SCV) was licensed to establish a nationwide broadband cable network to provide pay-TV services. SCV also had the unprecedented responsibility of delivering terrestrial free-to-air (FTA) channels to Singapore households via its cable points, free-of-charge to viewers.

In September 1999, SCV completed the construction of its S$600 million network, and in recognition of its nationwide cabling effort, SCV was granted exclusivity in the provision of pay-TV services until June 2002. As the nation developed, Singaporeans began to embrace pay-TV as an additional source of lifestyle entertainment, in addition to other entertainment sources such as cinemas, Internet and DVD/VCD purchase/rentals.

In July 2002, StarHub completed its merger with Singapore Cable Vision, which was renamed StarHub Cable Vision.

On 19 September 2008, StarHub Digital Cable was rebranded as StarHub TV.

From 4 July 2009 onwards, StarHub TV would be entering to Full Digital Mode which means all Analogue transmission would cease operation.

From mid 2010, StarHub TV will no longer broadcast the Barclays English Premier League for the 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons as it did not procure the rights to do so. It's carriage of ESPN (Channel 23), STAR SPORTS (Channel 24) and STAR Cricket (Channel 110) will also cease at the same time.
