Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA) has appointed M1 Limited (M1) to help Singapore's low-income households enjoy access to digital free-to-air TV programming, the Singapore telco announced today.

"M1 is pleased to play a part in helping Singapore's low income households continue to enjoy free-to-air programming," said Willis Sim, Director, Product Development and Enterprise Services, M1. "We also look forward to further contributing to the Digital Switchover by extending the benefits of DVB-T2 technology to everyone," he said.

As part of MDA's Digital TV Assistance Scheme, M1 will supply DVB-T2 (Digital Video Broadcasting -- Second Generation Terrestrial) set-top boxes and indoor antennas to eligible households, the telco said in a statement.

Through M1's DVB-T2 set-top box, households will be able to access MediaCorp's digital free-to-air TV broadcasts on their TV. This will enable them to enjoy enhanced video quality through superior image and sound quality, as well as access MediaCorp's electronic programme guide.

MediaCorp is progressively rolling out its digital TV network over the next 2 to 3 years.

"M1 is pleased to play a part in helping Singapore's low income households continue to enjoy free-to-air programming," said Willis Sim, Director, Product Development and Enterprise Services, M1.
