Just a fortnight ago, premium TV network HBO Asia released a standalone subscription-based app service called HBO Go that allows viewers to catch their favourite series on their mobile devices.
Since then, we have seen that local Singaporean network StarHub lost the exclusive right to host the six HBO channels when Singtel announced its shiny new subscription plan for HBO.
Now, mobile users will get to enjoy the likes of hit series Game of Thrones and Westworld, or blockbuster films such as Justice League or Ready Player One on the Mediacorp digital entertainment platform, Toggle, from February 14 onwards.
Good news for Singaporeans who have the Toggle app already installed (and possibly collecting virtual dust) on their mobile devices and Smart TVs. This new addition might just make Toggle one of their most heavily-used apps in the coming weeks and months.
Toggle’s subscription model is priced at a competitive rate of S$13.98/month, or as low as S$10 annually, which offers a lucrative, slightly more affordable alternative to what Singtel and StarHub are currently offering. The only downside? No free month-long previews.
