Let's compare the StarHub TV+ Box vs Fibre TV Set-Top Box

Let's compare the StarHub TV+ Box vs Fibre TV Set-Top Box

There’s better entertainment with the new StarHub TV+ experience! Enjoy live TV channels and on-demand content by renting a StarHub TV+ Box once you sign-up to any StarHub TV+ Passes.

 

Here are the new features of the StarHub TV+ Box:

Time-Shift TV: You can navigate through the TV Guide to watch programmes that have aired in the last 24 hours. You will also be able to “Start Over” from the beginning if you tuned in to a programme in the middle of its broadcast. This is available for selected channels only.

Personalised Recommendations: You will get content suggestions without having to search. This means, we will match suitable and relevant content based on your viewing preferences

Continue Watching: You can resume watching on any supported devices at home since it will bookmark your viewing progress and remember where you last left off.

You forgot to state that it requires the Nokia Beacon 1 and that no other router works in that case. This is a disaster by the way

The current supported router models are:

  • Smart WiFi (Nokia Beacon 1)
  • Linksys EA7500v2
  • Linksys EA8100

Moreover, we are working to expand the list of compatible routers progressively over time.
