PSA: StarHub is offering a free preview of its new HITS Movies channel for more than a year!
Following its recent streak of new channel offerings for its various tiers of TV subscribers after the recent cessation of content from Discover Networks, StarHub is once again launching new channel offerings for its subscribers.
Coming soon from 14th September is People TV HD (channel 440), which as the name suggests is all about celebrities, pop culture, and other human-interest genres.
From 1st October, you’ll be treated to a channel full of classic hit movies with Rewind Networks’ HITS Movies HD (channel 512).
Both channels will also be made available on StarHub Go for on-the-go consumption needs at the same launch dates.
