Singapore pay-TV operator launches the StarHub Go Streaming Box
StarHub has unveiled the StarHub Go Streaming Box, a brand-new “all-in-one entertainment destination” combining the best of StarHub’s content catalogue and the Google Play store.
Powered by the Android TV Oreo operating system and compatible with any wireless broadband connection, the box comes pre-loaded with a Go Family subscription, which includes over 50 channels. Featuring content optimised for the big screen, the box is integrated into the StarHub Go ecosystem, allowing customers to switch viewing between their TV set and smart devices — StarHub Go is an over-the-top (OTT) service offered by StarHub.
Justin Ang, head of product, StarHub, said: “Our customers want the freedom to choose which programmes to watch, where to watch and when to watch it, and the StarHub Go Streaming Box delivers on every front.
“With just a few clicks, customers can easily access all their favourite content from StarHub Go and other streaming apps on a single platform. Customers who binge-watch StarHub Go content on-the-go using their smartphones will also love the seamless experience of returning home and resuming from where they last stopped on the big screen. This new elevated way of enjoying content puts the best of entertainment in the palm of the customer’s hand.”
The StarHub Go Streaming Box supports 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) content and comes with Google Assistant voice search, which enables users to easily seek out content with a simple voice command to the voice remote. Google Chromecast is also built into the box to allow customers to stream video content to the TV set from their smart devices. The box also comes pre-loaded with YouTube, Google Play Movies and Google Play Games, and supports the Google Play store, so customers can download more of their favourite apps and games.
