Football: StarHub extends early bird offer for its Premier+ service until June 30
SINGAPORE – English soccer fans now have until June 30 to sign up for StarHub’s Premier+ service at early bird rates.
The extension, the telecommunications company said in a press release on Monday (June 20), will give customers “sufficient time to conclude their pay TV service agreements with the existing provider, avoiding early termination charges.”
He added that the move was “in response to the enthusiastic response following our launch of Premier+” announced on June 8. Their initial early bird promotion had been for the first 25,000 subscriptions only (which included new and existing subscribers). But this was met with “overwhelming” demand and the telecom company extended the deadline to June 19.
In February, StarHub became the official broadcaster of the English Premier League (EPL) in Singapore for the next six seasons, taking over the rights from Singtel.
Premier+ is an over-the-top (OTT) service. Such services are primarily available for mobile devices, although they can also be accessed on compatible set-top boxes, smart TVs, or streamed via Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay.
StarHub mobile postpaid, home broadband and TV+ customers can subscribe to Premier+ for $19.99 per month (regularly $24.99 per month). Premier+ is also available as a standalone service at $34.99 per month (regularly $39.99 per month).
There is no minimum contract required for both options, which can be accessed through Premier+.
However, those who want a general sports package should note that StarHub’s Premier+ service does not include other offers. For content like the German Soccer Bundesliga, Champions League, MotoGP, basketball, tennis and golf, it costs $24.99 with a 24-month contract on its Sports+ package.
Customers can subscribe to Premier+ on this websi te and at any StarHub store.
