Digital TV (DTV) Starter Kit

last updated 16 April 2018

The DTV Starter Kit will help all Singaporean HDB households that do not subscribe to pay TV, continue to enjoy local free-to-air TV programmes after analogue TV signals are switched off on 31 December 2018.

Each DTV Starter Kit will allow eligible households to either redeem an indoor antenna and digital set-top box for free (including free delivery and installation), or enjoy $100 off selected DTV equipment at participating electronics stores.

Eligible households will receive a letter explaining how the DTV Starter Kit can be used. Letters will be sent out in batches from April to June 2018.

Who is eligible for the DTV Starter Kit?

  • Singaporean households staying in HDB flats;
  • with no Singtel or StarHub pay TV service; and
  • who have not redeemed or collected the package under IMDA’s previous Digital TV Assistance Scheme.

Each eligible household is entitled to one DTV Starter Kit.

You do not need to apply for the DTV Starter Kit.

April - Clementi, Tampines
