SINGAPORE -- Following the launch of the Samsung HD Interactive set-top box in April, StarHub TV customers are now able to enjoy recording capabilities with the boxes.

They can do so by connecting a type-approved external hard-disk drive to their Samsung HD Interactive set-top box, and subscribing to the Smart TV Value Added Service (VAS). The Smart TV VAS, which can be subscribed via Instant Buy on TV, is available at a monthly subscription of $4.28 (with GST).

The type-approved external hard-disk drives by Western Digital include: - My Passport AV 320GB (sold exclusively at StarHub Shops) - My Passport Ultra 500GB / 1TB (available island-wide at all major IT retailers)

With this new recording function enabled on the Samsung HD Interactive set-top box via My Passport AV/ Ultra, customers can enjoy recording of up to two programmes concurrently. One subscription to the Smart TV VAS, will also allow customers to view their recordings on all Samsung HDi set-top boxes within the same household.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
