BBC Worldwide has launched the BBC Player, its first TV Everywhere service, in partnership with Singaporean pay-TV offering StarHub.
The service offers StarHub users content from international channels BBC Earth, BBC First, BBC Lifestyle, Cbeebies and BBC World News, as well as premium drama channel BBC Brit.
Paul Dempsey, president, global markets, BBC Worldwide, said, “We’ve introduced BBC Brit, BBC Earth and BBC First to countries all around the world but this is first time we’ve given fans of premium British entertainment, documentary and drama, along with children’s and news their own dedicated space to stream, download and enjoy their favourite shows wherever and whenever they want.”
The BBC Player will be available via all devices, and will provide an offline viewing mode.
Howie Lau, CMO, StarHub, added, “We are delighted that StarHub TV customers will be the first in Asia to enjoy BBC Player.
“BBC Player not only complements our pay-TV offering, it also delivers BBC’s signature content seamlessly across our customers’ devices, deepening the overall entertainment experience.”
