Singapore, 30 November, 2012 – Singapore Telecommunications Ltd (Singtel) today announced the launch of three new channels on mio TV. Thrill (mio TV Channel 415), Thrill On Demand (mio TV Channel 416) and KIX HD On Demand (mio TV Channel 308) will be available to subscribers from 1 December.

Mr Goh Seow Eng, Singtel’s Managing Director of Television, said: “Movies and programmes about the paranormal and supernatural are highly popular among Singaporeans and the introduction of Thrill on mio TV allows us to expand our variety of programming and reach out to customers who enjoy the suspense that these programmes bring.” 

“The addition of more on-demand channels on mio TV such as Thrill On Demand and KIX HD On Demand allows our customers to watch their favourite programmes at their own time.” 

Thrill is Asia’s first and only 24-hour movie channel dedicated to the popular horror, suspense and thriller genres. From monster movies to J-horror, heart-stopping Hollywood chills to suspenseful TV series, there is something to satisfy every fan of the genre.
