M. Others

  • What are the offerings on Singtel TV?
    Singtel TV has something for everyone, catering to viewers of all ages from all walks of life. Singtel TV offers the following :
    a. On Demand Channels
    b. HD programmes
    c. Quality channels
  • What are High Definition (HD) channels?
    High Definition Television channels are an advancement in TV technology; broadcasting on digital video format, and capable of displaying 16:9 aspect ratio images with resolution that is far superior and sharper than the current Analogue Television or Standard Definition Television. HD programmes will also be broadcast with full 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound where available.
  • What are the key features of HD?
    HD allows you to enjoy a widescreen movie experience on your TV. It does away with the traditional box format and allows a wide movie-screen experience as pictures are presented in 16:9 aspect ratio.

    Most TV sets today are manufactured using the 4:3 aspect ratio - 4 units wide by 3 units high. HD on the other hand delivers images in 16:9 aspect ratio. So you enjoy panoramic widescreen viewing that most closely emulates the human field of vision. To be exact, you enjoy 33% more screen view than your standard TV.

    The sharpness of your television image, or its screen resolution, is measured by the number of horizontal lines displayed on the TV screen. The more the lines and the higher resolution, the sharper the images are on your TV screen.

    HD-ready TV sets offer at least twice the resolution and four times greater detail, sharpness and clarity than standard TVs.

    You will have a totally different TV viewing experience, with theatre-quality pictures and cinematic sound effects in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound (where available).

    Properly decoded, each audio track can be isolated to individual speakers around your TV viewing area to recreate the multi-dimensional audio experience you get in the cinema, right in your living room.

    Singtel TV brings the widest and largest line up of HD programming in Singapore.
  • How do I enjoy HD channels?
    To enjoy HD channels, you will need:
    a. A HD-ready TV set
    b. Dolby® Digital Home Entertainment System (optional)
    c. Your Singtel TV HD Set-Top Box is already HD-enabled
  • Can I enjoy HD channels even if I do not have a HD-ready or HD TV?
    With Singtel TV, you can still enjoy the HD programmes in a 4:3 aspect ratio (with black trimmings).
  • Where can I find the detailed information and a synopsis of the video title?
    Detailed information on each title can be found on the Information Page of the particular video title. The Information Pageoffers you detailed information on the title such as price, synopsis, programme classification, genre, duration, episode number and title, directors and cast and available audio tracks.
  • Do the programmes have subtitles and dual sound? How would I know if this programme has subtitles or dual sound before making a purchase?
    Subtitles and dual sound would be available for some of the programmes. Subtitles in English would be available only for Asian films that are shown in a language other than English. Information on the availability of dual sound can be found on the Info Page of the programme, which you can access via the on-screen catalogue page.
