#1 Direct access to Toggle’s vast catalogue of video-on-demand (VOD) services
Marathon your favourite shows to your heart’s content, with more than 12,000 hours of Mediacorp TV shows and Toggle Original content readily available at your fingertips—set-top box and hassle-free—just by the push of one red button. You no longer have to switch between apps or screens to access your favourite Mediacorp content (shows, behind-the-scenes clips, interview footages, and more), ever.

Toggle and cuddle, anyone?

#2 Electronic TV guide at the push of the buttons
Want to find out what time your favourite show is on or what’s the next programme on air? Easy peasy. Get all the information you need, from programme information, synopsis and schedules of recent and upcoming programmes, on the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), just by pressing the red button on the TV remote control. You no longer have to refer to TV listings on newspapers or magazines for the latest broadcast schedules.

#3 Curated thematic streaming channels
Coming soon: watch old shows on re-runs via specific thematic streaming channels that will cater to different categories and/or events – from the best of shows by award-winning actors and actresses, to nation-building dramas to celebrate the Singapore spirit. We may be getting a little prophetic here, but fans who wished they could watch their idols on TV 24/7 without intermission or interference, this is something to look out for.

#4 Seamless integration between broadcast TV and Catch-up TV content
Missed out on an episode of your favourite TV drama last night? Not to worry, watch it via Catch-up TV on your HbbTV-enabled Smart TV. With broadcast TV and Catch-up TV content made available on a single interface, discover and play all past episodes of shows content directly from the EPG – fuss free. Watch old, current and future episodes all at one go.

#5 News, entertainment and interactive content at your fingertips
With the press of the red button, catch up on the latest news content while watching Mediacorp’s free-to-air TV channels and accessing Toggle’s vast library of programmes – all in one screen. In future, users can look forward to services like stock quotes, personalised watchlists, as well as interactive features such as voting and social engagement.
