Love TV? Playon!LIVE lets you tune in to MediaCorp Free-to-air (FTA) channels in HD, under the DVB-T2 broadcasting format. Welcome to Digital TV.

All set for Digital TV.

Digital TV is an advanced broadcasting technology that enables superior-quality pictures and sound.

Digital TV broadcast rollout map

How does this affect Singapore?

The switchover to digital broadcasting began in December 2013. Existing analogue TV signals will continue to broadcast alongside digital TV signals, for at least another two years from December 2013 until the switchover to digital broadcasting signals is completed between 2015 and 2020.

After the current analogue channels are switched off, you will not be able to receive MediaCorp Digital TV channels if 1. you do not have a DVB-T2 ready TV or receiver (e.g. Playon!LIVE), or 2. you are not a pay-TV subscriber.
