HBO Asia developing two more pay-TV channels

Singapore-based HBO Asia will introduce at least two more channels for Asia’s pay-TV market in the near future after launching RED HD, dedicated to Asian blockbusters.

Jonathan Spink, CEO of the leading global content distributor said that the Asian market including Thailand was emerging with a strong population, while demand had become more sophisticated. 

He did not elaborate on the two new channels, saying they were under development, but believes that they would serve demand from Asian viewers like RED, which recently debuted on True Visions, Thailand’s largest pay-TV operator. 

RED offers an array of premium Asian movie entertainment from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and other Asian countries, Nation Multimedia reports.

“With the launch of RED HD in Thailand, True Visions now has all of HBO Asia’s bouquet of high-definition channels, namely HBO HD, HBO SIGNATURE HD, HBO HITS HD, HBO FAMILY HD and CINEMAX,” he said.
