The Starhub HD Set-Top Box

One more day to go, and preparation started last week. What preparation did I hear you asked? Watching the Olympics on High Definition on TV.

Many household, including ours, got the High Definition Set-Top Box from our cable TV company so that we could watch High Definition broadcast of the Beijing Olympics on the Free-to-air channel HD5. Plus we get 6 dedicated Olympic channels on cable TV too. Hmmm TV addicts rejoice!

(Sounds weird? Oxymoron? Cable TV Set-top box for free-to-air TV? Yes! It's the cheapest way too. )

We are ready. HD Ready. 8 PM tomorrow!
Yes, Singapore and Malaysia have the same timezone as Beijing, China ;-)

For those in Singapore, the HD5 schedule's here.
