Currently got no contract with Starhum Cable TV, saw the promotion on the free gift, thinking of getting it and give as a house warming present.

1. Found out need to be a new owner.
2. Existing suscrible not entitle even if upgrade of plan.

Was ask to terminate the Cable TV and reconnect back after 2 month than can consider as new suscrible.

WTF..:eek: if i could go without the cable tv for 2 month, i would never take up again since there program are alway repeating and the local chanel is repeating shortly after..

Kind of stupid for them to do that..

Have discuss with wife and decide to remove totally..

One less customer for them and one less bills for me.

Just wondering what kind of Promo team they have... :thumbsd::thumbsd::thumbsd:

If you have been following/noticing the promos, it also depends on the promos. Some promos do allow existing customers w/o contract to recontract but must top up some money. Also, this terminate for 2months thingy is not entirely true. The clause is "Promotion is not applicable to customers who terminate their service after 17 November 2006". So, eg. if you had terminated on 15th Nov for some reason, and suddenly this promo came abt, you can enjoy this promo.

Had the same situation as yours. Have been subscribing to Starhub cabletv and maxonline for the past 3 yrs and paying $100++ every mth. And all they care is just "new" customers. It seems to me as they do not really care about their existing customers and the hike in their sportsgroup really pissed me off. :( Guess any further hikes in their existing rates, I will have to terminate it and go to the kopitiams to watch with the ah peks.

That doesn't seem to be entirely true. Which promotion were you looking at?

I checked out one promtion - the FREE SONY Home Theatre System worth $499 with StarHub Digital Cable as an example

If you check this page, http://cabletv.starhub.com/promo/dvr1206_login.jsp there is a provision for existing Cable TV subscribers to recontract - although you would not get it free but at a promotional price

By signing up to this offer, I can purchase the Digital Video Recorder set-top box worth $698.25 at a special price of $299.25 and subscribe to SMART TV service for $5.25 monthly, and also undertake the installation fee of $31.50.
