On 15 September 2014, we will launch a new mobile application that is specially designed and created for Singapore's senior citizens. The app will provide an anytime, anywhere viewing proposition via Android Tablets.
StarHub Silver App will offer up to 120 hours of top-rated Hokkien drama series and locally-produced Hokkien programmes from Ruyi Channel on Demand (Channel 852). Existing subscribers of the channel will be able to access all titles on the app at no additional cost.
StarHub Silver App is jointly created by StarHub’s Golden Gurus, an information technology empowerment and education programme by seniors for seniors, and Lions Befrienders Service Association, a Voluntary Welfare Organisation which provides care to senior citizens. Designed with senior citizens in mind, StarHub Silver App features a simple user interface, pictorial presentations, a soothing colour scheme, and large fonts to aid reading and enable easy navigation.
At launch, 16 titles will be available on StarHub Silver App. These include hugely-popular drama series Feng Shui Family, a drama that revolves around two families turning against each other due to Feng Shui restrictions set by their ancestors, Night Market Life, narrates the life of a strong woman who has to earn a livelihood by selling food at the night market, after being betrayed by her husband, and Variety Get Together, a light-hearted variety show by renowned hosts Hu Gua, Dong Zhi Cheng and Hao Jiao Xiang Qi. On average, 10 new episodes per title will be introduced every month. Users will be able to sample the programmes with one episode per title made available for free viewing.
To commemorate the launch, two Taiwanese artistes, Wang Tong and Royce Wong will be at Ang Mo Kio Hub on 23 August 2014 at 6.30pm to meet with their fans. Wang Tong and Royce Wong are currently starring in Feng Shui Family and Night Market Life on Ruyi Channel.
