HKBN has launched a new range of bundled broadband and pay TV offers for both enterprise and consumer customers, in collaboration with TVB.

Subscribers to HKBN Enterprise Solutions will be able to sign up for a 100Mbps business broadband service for prices starting at HK$588 on a 24-month contract. The service will be bundled with access to a basic myTV SUPER pay TV pack as well as a sports upgrade pack.

Meanwhile consumer customers can subscribe to a 100Mbps service for prices starting at HK$198 or a 1000Mbps service for prices starting at HK$238, which will be bundled with the myTV Gold service, as well as a home telephone service and Wi-Fi concierge service.

HKBN will waive initial installation fees for both the enterprise and consumer packages.

"HKBN has been striving to disrupt the status quo in the market. After studying the toll levels of current pay TV content in the market, we strongly believe that a great deal of room still exists for customers to enjoy world-class movies, entertainment and sports events at more competitive prices,” HKBN EVP William Yeung said.

“Today, we aim to further strengthen the dual play of superb broadband service and OTT content through the advantage myTV SUPER collaboration. HKBN will deliver a wave of offers for both the residential and enterprise market as a way to reward our customers."
