The Premier League has signed a long-term deal with Singaporean multinational telecommunications conglomerate StarHub. The six-year broadcast partnership will see the platform make the Premier League matches more ‘accessible and affordable’ to the Singaporean fans.
Matches will not only be shown on StarHub TV+ but also on its mobile and broadband offerings. StarHub has promised to show all the matches in HD with a ‘richer interactive user interface’ which will include Party Watch, split screen viewing, performance statistics features amongst others. On-demand match replays will also be available for the fans viewing the games on StarHub platforms.

StarHub will be an outstanding home for the Premier League over the next six seasons and we look forward to working together to showcase the League to new and existing fans throughout Singapore.”
Johan Buse, Chief, Consumer Business Group, StarHub, added:
“Football is beloved by Singaporean fans, and we are immeasurably thrilled to up the game for all Premier League fans in Singapore!
“The addition of the Premier League is a significant step in our bold DARE+ Infinity play journey, riding on the continued successful momentum of Disney+, GameHub+ with NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW and others, to bring the best entertainment options to customers seamlessly.
“We are hard at work to stitch together unparalleled and more affordable Premier League access via StarHub TV+, our mobile and broadband platforms – fans will never have to miss a beat in the action. The beauty of StarHub TV+ is that fans can sign in to the app, regardless of which broadband or mobile service provider they are with, removing barriers to access their favourite matches on any device, any screen, anytime.”
