StarHub TV


StarHub TV

StarHub Cable Vision Limited is the sole cable television operator in Singapore. 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.
