As you may know, BPL matches will be cross-carried on StarHub. This seems to be a sweet victory for StarHub (not for SingTel though). Now, StarHub sweetens the deal to fans by providing S$300 rebate off their StarHub bill (terms and conditions apply). BPL can also be seen on StarHub’s TV Anywhere.
Before you jump with joy, you need to know more about the Cross-Carriage airing of BPL. First, you will need to go to SingTel to sign up for it (one time). StarHub will then bill directly to you. Here is a video to describe it.
There are basically 2 Surf and Watch plans that you will need to contract/recontract. They are the Deluxe HD Pack and 100Mbps fibre/cable home broadband at $62.37 (w/GST) per month; and Deluxe HD Pack and 25Mbps cable home broadband at $47.37 (w/GST) per month.
Complicated? I suggest you head down to StarHub website for more details. There are many little “T&C” around, especially for existing customers on different plans.
And for those who wanted to know more good stuff, you can read the Press Release below.
