Singtel to launch Pay TV with HD Channels from VOOM HD Networks

Singapore, 16 January, 2007 – Singapore media company Mega Media is to supply an exciting and comprehensive suite of high quality High Definition (HD) channels for SingTel’s IPTV service when it is launched commercially later this year.

The slate of HD channels offers something for all audiences and it includes a number of channels in partnership with Rainbow Media’s VOOM HD Networks. VOOM HD is the world’s largest High Definition broadcaster, broadcasting 15 full HD channels in the United States. The channels on offer here will include VOOM HD, which features a line-up of High Definition programming selected from VOOM’s 15 HD Channels, including documentary, travel, music, arts, fashion and lifestyle genres among others.

In addition, Singapore consumers can expect the first Made-by-Singapore HD channel – Sling HD. This is a channel about computer gaming and extreme sports and is designed for those who take both reality and virtual reality to the extreme.

Mega Media and Voom’s HD content is currently available on SingTel’s IPTV technical trial, which began in November 2006.
