Duo promises enhanced VOD, a la carte packages
StarHub will offer enhanced video-on-demand (VOD) and a la carte packaging for its cable TV services.StarHub plans to utilize Nagravision S.A’s advanced Conditional Access capabilities to expand its array of services for its customers in Singapore. With a la carte packaging, consumers can choose to subscribe to individual channels or create personalised packages of channels, instead of a pre-determined group of channels. “StarHub’s plans are to expand its choices to customers, including a variety of video-on demand services as well as a la carte cable TV packaging,” said Mike Reynolds, StarHub’s Head of Integrated Products and Marketing. StarHub has other features planned for the near future, including Video-On-Demand and Chat, adding to its newly-launched Smart TV service. The pay-TV operator is also working on a FlexiWatch service, similar to its broadband FlexiSurf package. StarHub’s online users pay a smaller pre-paid fee for broadband access over a 3-25-day period. FlexiWatch will offer similar options for cable TV. “We enjoy a long term and strong partnership with Nagravision and are certainly looking forward to this deeper level of engagement in the exciting times ahead. We would like to take opportunity of BroadcastAsia to seek more technological partners like Nagravision, to work with us on the introduction of new platforms so that we can continue to offer even more innovations to our range of products and services,” added Reynolds.
