Singapore's StarHub has launched Go Streaming Box, a brand new all-in-one entertainment destination combining the best of StarHub’s content catalogue and the Google Play store.  

The StarHub Go Streaming Box is available at $14.90 per month together with StarHub 1Gbps Fibre Broadband at $39.90 per month, with a 24-month contract. 

Powered by the Android TV Oreo operating system and compatible with any wireless broadband connection, the box comes preloaded with a Go Family subscription, which includes over 50 channels. Featuring content optimised for the big screen, the box is integrated into the StarHub Go ecosystem, allowing customers to seamlessly switch viewing between their TV set and smart devices.

The first in the world to run on the Operator Tier version of Android TV Oreo, the StarHub Go Streaming Box makes content discovery a breeze. Operator tier permits operators to provide customers with a customised user interface. One of the advantages is that titles from StarHub Go packs are aggregated onto a ’discover’ tab and categorised according to genre, allowing customers to explore and discover content without the hassle of navigating through separate tabs.

The StarHub Go Streaming Box supports Ultra HD content (4K) and comes with Google Assistant voice search, which enables users to easily seek out content with a simple voice command to the voice remote. Google Chromecast is also built into the box to allow customers to stream video content to the TV set from their smart devices. The box also comes preloaded with YouTube, Google Play Movies, Google Play Games and supports the Google Play store, so customers can download more of their favourite apps and games.

Customers looking to upsize their content on top of their Go Family subscription can subscribe to other StarHub Go packs like Go Select, Go Sports, Go Disney, Catchplay Unlimited, HBO GO on StarHub Go or third-party applications like FOX+.

With just a few clicks, customers can easily access all their favourite content from StarHub Go and other streaming apps on a single platform. Customers who binge-watch StarHub Go content on the go using their smartphones will also love the seamless experience of returning home and resuming from where they last stopped on the big screen.
