Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia Adds ONE (Malay) to StarHub TV in Singapore

Singapore, 20 July 2011 – Sony Pictures Television’s networks, Asia, is expanding distribution of ONE in Singapore with a third feed of its first Asian entertainment channel launching on StarHub TV.

Debuting on 22 July 2011, the Malay language localised ONE (Malay) (StarHub TV Ch 124), joins Mandarin-Chinese localised standard and high definition (HD) channels, ONE (StarHub TV Ch 823) and ONE HD (StarHub TV Ch 876) respectively, on the cable TV platform.

Prior to the launch of ONE (Malay) in Singapore, the Malay language-localised ONE HD has already proven to be very successful in Malaysia where it is the No.1-rated HD channel since 1 January 2011.

With a focus on top South Korean entertainment, ONE is the exclusive destination of programs produced by Seoul-based content supplier and broadcaster SBS through an output deal. ONE offers viewers in Singapore some of the latest Korean drama series, with selected titles premiering 3 – 5 weeks after their debut broadcasts in South Korea. In addition, the hippest K-pop variety and music programmes complement the channel’s drama line-up.

Working with StarHub TV, we are glad to share the joys of the latest and finest Korean content in Malay localisation. The launch of ONE (Malay) is perfectly timed to add to the fun and festivities leading up to the Hari Raya Aidil Fitri celebrations,” said Ricky Ow, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Networks, Asia, Sony Pictures Television.
