Starhub to introduce more HD channels Channel 560, 569 and 580

A check on Starhub TV channels shows us that there are at least 3 English channels under the English Entertainment group. The 3 channels, which the genre is unknown an be found on Channel 560, 569 and 580. As the numbers are in the upper series of 500, we presume these 3 channels are HD channels.

So, what would be the kind of channels that will be introduced on these new channels ? post your comments below
