HKBN To Bundle TVB’s OTT Service With Broadband Plans
In an exciting move to herald the OTT (Over-The-Top) entertainment revolution, HKBN and Television Broadcasts Limited (“TVB”) announced today the launch of myTV SUPER + fibre broadband super value bundles. By paying as low as only HK$148 a month, customers can take full advantage of HKBN’s hi-speed and reliable fibre network for an unprecedented enjoyment of thrilling, ultra-diverse entertainment content – and experience why HKBN is the leading platform for “Your home for fibre entertainment”.
Bringing incredible bang-for-buck value, all bundles will feature 100Mbps, 500Mbps or 1000Mbps home fibre broadband service together with HKBN Wi-Fi mobile broadband, plus myTV SUPER TV box and mobile app. Through these bundles, customers can watch all their favourite programmes both at home on the big screen and on-the-go via their mobile devices.
By choosing a designated bundle* with a 24-month service contract term, customers will enjoy both myTV SUPER’s Basic Pack (includes 20 channels plus 3,000 hours of TVB Production SVOD) along with the Premium Basic Pack (includes 10 premium channels featuring variety and leisure, style and infotainment, and current affairs programs); plus 8,000 hours of TVB Premium SVOD.

HKBN CEO and Co-Owner William Yeung said, “HKBN and TVB are committed to offering super value beyond all expectations to the masses. Customers no longer have to pay high fees for premium video content options. Within the next 18 months, we promise to acquire 400,000 residential broadband customers to use myTV SUPER. As HKBN targets to accelerate growth of our residential broadband business, we expect the number of subscriptions to expand from the current 790,000 to over 1 million in the next two years.”
To boost morale, HKBN is holding two Talent Meetings respectively for all Talents starting today in Hong Kong, and subsequently, in Guangzhou the following day. Both events will be attended by a combined number of all 2,400 HKBN Talents. And to mobilise the company’s goal of capturing 100,000 new customers over the next year, HKBN has allocated an additional $1 million towards special rewards (on top of the standard structure for salary and bonuses) for frontline Talents, as well as one additional day of paid leave for all HKBN Talents if target is achieved.
TVB Executive Director and General Manager, Mr. S. K. Cheong said, “myTV SUPER brings the level of joy and convenience in home entertainment to a whole new level. Your eyes will be delighted with the super high picture quality. The instant 3 hour rewind and seamless catch-up means you can choose to watch any programmes at any time right on your TV set. Finally, we are confident that the range and quality of the programmes in our 30 live channels and 11,000 hours of VOD will make every customer happy and satisfied.”
