Digital TV (DTV) Starter Kit



The DTV Starter Kit helps all Singaporean HDB households that do not subscribe to pay TV, continue to enjoy local free-to-air TV programmes after the analogue TV signals were switched off on 1 January 2019.

What does the DTV Starter Kit do?

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 qualifying DTV equipment at participating electronics stores.

Each eligible household is entitled to one DTV Starter Kit.

Who can apply?

You qualify for the DTV Starter Kit if you

  • Stay in a HDB flat;

  • Have at least one Singaporean household member;

  • Do not have Singtel or StarHub pay TV service; and

  • Have not redeemed a free package under IMDA’s previous Digital TV Assistance Scheme.

How to apply?

If you qualify for the DTV Starter Kit, you can submit an online application here by 31 July 2019. However, if you have already received an approval letter from IMDA, you can redeem your kit here
