STARHUB TV customers can look forward to a dedicated Malayalam movie channel from Oct 23.
Asianet Movies (StarHub TV Channel 140) is a 24-hour channel which carries over 1,000 titles ranging from evergreen classics to the latest box-office hits.
Together with Asianet (StarHub TV Channel 139), a general entertainment channel in Malayalam, it will form the new Nidhi Pack.
"When StarHub launched Asianet some years back, local Malayalee households were able to enjoy quality content in their language on a dedicated channel. Today, we are pleased to enhance their viewing entertainment with the introduction of Asianet Movies," said Ms Lee Soo Hui, head of StarHub's Media Business Unit.
Viewers can subscribe to the Nidhi Pack at $16.05 (including GST) per month.
To coincide with Deepavali, StarHub is offering both new and existing subscribers a 50 per cent discount for three months when they sign up for the Nidhi Pack between Oct 29 and Dec 28.
There will also be a free preview of Asianet Movies from 9am on Oct 23 to noon on Nov 16.
