Singapore : Brace yourselves for ice and fire – HBO’s global hit series Game of Thrones is coming to Singtel. From tomorrow, HBO Asia’s six channels will be available on Singtel TV and its companion mobile app, Singtel TV GO. To celebrate the launch, all six HBO* channels will be available on free preview for all Singtel TV customers from 1 to 28 February 2019.
HBO GO, HBO Asia’s streaming service, will be available from 15 March through CAST, Singtel’s video app for mobile and smart TV sets.
“We’re thrilled to welcome HBO to our entertainment line-up and we’re pleased to offer our customers a month-long free preview just in time for the Lunar New Year holidays. This partnership marks a significant milestone in our efforts to offer the best and most comprehensive range of content in Singapore, which is accessible across mobile, broadband and TV. We know that many of our customers are looking forward to the final season of Game of Thrones which premieres in April and I am equally excited to learn the fate of the Iron Throne!” said Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, CEO, Consumer Singapore, Singtel.
With the introduction of HBO, Singtel TV continues to expand its content offerings following the addition of eight channels in 2018. These include Discovery Networks’ trio of lifestyle channels and the launch of its second in-house Asian entertainment channel, e-Le.
Along with the final chapter of Game of Thrones, customers can look forward to enjoying HBO’s most popular shows including Westworld and True Detective.
“We are delighted to launch all six of our HBO branded channels and our On-Demand service on Singtel TV, from Hollywood blockbusters and critically-acclaimed HBO Original series on HBO, to action-packed movies and series on CINEMAX and Asian stories on RED BY HBO,” said Mr Jonathan Spink, CEO of HBO Asia. “With this new partnership with Singtel, more subscribers in Singapore will now have access to the best Hollywood movies and award-winning HBO Original content from Asia and the U.S.”
Following the free preview, HBO Pak – which includes the six HBO Asia channels and HBO On Demand (yellow button on the Singtel TV remote control) on Singtel TV, and HBO GO – will be available as an add-on pack at $13.98 monthly. Singtel TV customers can sign up for the HBO Pak from 1 March on Singtel.com/TV or call 1609.
