Starhub should introduce Asian HD channel

Currently, there are already 5 HD channels available on Starhub, they are National Geograpic, Discovery, History Channel HD, Sports HD and the Mediacorp HD5 which comes free.

With more Asian programmes shot in HD, I am surprised that Starhub has not taken this advantage to introduce an Chinese, Korean or Japanese channel showing these amazing production in the glory of HD.

I particularly like the drama from KBS "葡萄园里的男人" which is now screened on Ch 56 都会台. It was a highly rated show and was screened in HD.

In fact, I noticed a lot of Taiwanese dramas were shot in HD but screened in SD right now on cable.

Perhaps it is time to either create a simulcast channel of CH 56 in HD or put them on VOD. At least those who have HD box will get to enjoy better picture clarity and sound
