ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of television broadcasters in Singapore and South Korea to offer multiplatform content. Widely tipped to take that leap of faith into multiplatform content was Singapore's StarHub, long rumored to be producing an interactive show for its cable TV, Internet and mobile telephone platforms. Buena Vista International TV became the first U.S. studio to launch wireless content in South Korea, one of Asia's most technologically advanced multichannel markets.
