Singapore - M1 a telco has begun to offer pay television services with its broadband

[straits times] THE third-largest telco here, M1, has made its first foray into the pay-television arena now occupied by the other two telcos.

M1's offerings over four main channels, aimed at the younger set, include interactive learning programmes from educational publisher Marshall Cavendish.

Its subscribers will also be able to play games, watch recorded concerts of international artists such as Lady Gaga, U2 and Coldplay as many times as they want, surf the Internet and watch streaming videos on popular websites like YouTube.

M1 will also offer a range of popular movie titles on a pay-per-view basis.

And to a pay-television audience already griping about dealing with the clutter of set-top boxes from StarHub and SingTel, M1 has lobbed its own unit, the '1box', into the ring.

Costing between $5 to $12 a month to rent from today, it will be available only to M1 broadband customers.
