Vannathirai on Starhub Cable TV

I wrote about the launch of Vasantham, a full-fledged channel from Mediacorp for the Indian community in Singapore. Now, Starhub has some good news for the Tamil speaking Indians in Singapore. StarHub has added a new channel, Vannathirai(VTV) to its pay-TV line up.

Vannathirai (VTV), Tamil TV Channel
What can you expect?
Vannathirai (VTV) is a 24-hour Tamil movie channel that offers classic movies and latest blockbusters. Vannathirai is expected to screen seven movies daily under five main categories namely
  1. Morning Classic,
  2. Mega Matinee,
  3. Evening Hits,
  4. Blockbuster Reels and
  5. Hit Night.
Viewers can also expect exclusive local programmes produced especially for the Singapore market.

Who can get access?
StarHub TV customers using the HubStation, digital or High Definition set-top box can watch Vannathirai channel via StarHub TV Channel 30. StarHub TV customers can add Vannathirai to their subscription packages for just $6.00 per month ($6.42 with 7% GST) upon the subscription of at least three Basic Groups from StarHub TV’s subscription plan.

    This is with ref to Vannathirai's V live. Recently they did a show on viewer preference for old songs vs new songs. Although an overwhelming majority of viewers called in support of old songs . The "intelligent" male host said that Vannathirai will continue to air new songs as the last 2 callers had a preference for new songs!?? Talk about completely ignoring viewer preference! Biased host - completely ignorant...

      i strongly agree.that has made me put offwatching the hello v live. they have to learn much more what is hosting. looks like its children programme or callers with no brains. they are even selective over their favourite callers.basically the presenters or whoever host will make the callers a fool of themselves. nishalini her favourite word how sweet. then goes her gorilla laughter. besides that new rekha. simply confusing when she talks alot n very snappy. hopefully they dont show a full picture on the screen. i dont want to see another movie actress with her fatty tissue celloloids thighs. no offends please. lets read n laugh bout it. god knows, changes will take place soon. tku v much

    please stop showing repeated movies in a short period, in tamil there are millions of movies, if you show 5 different movies in a day, it'll take years to show all the movies. do the act now onwards

    i like it. enough i love the play of actors in singapore.

  11. For heaven & hell sake! Stop showing the same movies again & again! Also stop repeating the same move that other channels have telecasted just days before!!!If you do not have funds to telecast movies, pls ask for DONATION!

  12. Within one month the same movie is repeated many times. Are you giving me a memory lesson. Is this a test your memory on movie channel. You should start a contest. At least there are some prizes to win.
