The formation of the Content Team represents a determined effort by StarHub to ensure that our customers’ infotainment needs are satisfied and quality content is only a click away both at home and out of the home environment," said Mr Mike Reynolds, Head of Commercial, StarHub. "By bringing our content resources across the company into one central team, we will be able to further leverage on our expertise and experience, not to mention the strong, long-standing relationships with our internationally renowned content partners, to deliver content-rich services that cannot be matched by our competitors."

"Loke Kheng has a depth of experience in the media and broadcast industry, ranging from programming to marketing in both free-to-air and pay TV markets.
