Singapore, 21 April, 2010 -- Singapore Telecommunications Ltd (Singtel) today announced that it will be celebrating its 200,000 customer milestone by offering a range of exciting treats to new and existing mio TV customers. 

“We are thrilled that 200,000 Singaporeans have chosen mio TV for their home entertainment, said Mr Tim Carmichael, Vice President of mio TV. “Since its launch in 2007, mio TV has created waves in the pay TV market in Singapore, which was dominated by a single player for over a decade.  We have brought many innovations to the market and today’s announcement is a reinforcement of our commitment to leading and shaping the industry.”

Tomorrow marks the Singapore TV premiere of James Cameron’s blockbuster movie Avatar on mio TV, and from April 22 till May 16, Avatar as well as all other on-demand movies will be available at the special price of only S$2.99 per movie (inclusive of GST). These include the latest Hollywood blockbusters such as Inglourious Basterds, 2012, Jennifer’s Body, Did You Hear About the Morgans? and Surrogates.

During this period, mio TV will also be conducting a daily lucky draw where customers stand a chance to win a Samsung 40” 3D LED TV, Samsung 3D Blu Ray player, two pairs of Samsung 3D glasses and a Monsters vs Aliens 3D Blu Ray DVD – a pack with a total value of over S$5,000.  Both new and existing mio TV customers automatically qualify for the draw.

“We are delighted to be the first in Singapore to bring Avatar into our customers’ living rooms,” said Mr Carmichael.  “The lucky winners of the Samsung 3D TVs will get to enjoy our movies in spectacular 3D right from the comfort of their sofas!”

He added, “mio TV has always been at the forefront of bringing the best and latest content to Singapore. Since 2008, fans have been able to watch the hottest TV series such as Glee, Gossip Girl and Vampire Diaries as early as 24 hours after their US telecast, and Hollywood movies on the same day as their DVD release, often as soon as three to four months after they first hit cinema screens.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their support and look forward to bringing even more exciting new content to their TV screens.”
