StarHub and Antstream Arcade enter exclusive partnership for Singapore customers

London-based retro game streaming service Antstream Arcade today announced an exclusive partnership with StarHub, a leading provider of communication, entertainment and digital solutions in Singapore, to enable customers to experience supercharged gaming with zero lag on StarHub’s first-to-market 5G service. This tie-up between StarHub and Antstream Arcade is the first such partnership in the Asia Pacific region. 

Through this exciting collaboration, StarHub’s Mobile+ customers can stream the world’s largest library of retro video games on almost any device of their choosing – from TVs to laptops, desktops, tablets and mobile phones – completely free for the first month. In addition, all StarHub Mobile postpaid customers can enjoy the same buffet of over 1000 retro video games at an exclusive monthly rate of $8.99. 

By game streaming, customers can play any title they want instantly, with no downloads and emulators required, all for a nominal monthly fee. They can switch between popular classics, such as Space Invaders, Asteroids and Double Dragon, at any time as they wish. Through Antstream Arcade, customers can also access exciting gaming tournaments, challenges, leaderboards and other social features, with exclusive gaming events planned for StarHub customers. 

Donovan Kik, Vice President of Mobile Marketing, StarHub, said: “In partnership with Antstream Arcade, we are bringing back the glory days of arcade machine classics all in one place, for customers finding comfort in nostalgia amid constant change. Our customers can instantly fire up any retro game they like and relive the joy of childhood at any time, just like simpler times without the fuss of complicated setups. By being the first in Singapore to launch 5G and game-streaming services, we are delighted to offer our customers the best entertainment and value and a super smooth service experience on our all-inclusive Mobile+ plans.” 

Steve Cottam, CEO of Antstream, said: “We’re very excited to announce our partnership with StarHub in Singapore as part of our global drive to make classic games available to gamers everywhere. Singapore is one of Asia’s most exciting markets for gaming, and StarHub’s new 5G service presents the perfect opportunity to expand the possibilities around streaming video games, and provide something uniquely valuable to its customers. 

“We believe Antstream’s cloud gaming application offers telcos a perfect path to benefit their investments in cloud infrastructure and consumer entertainment. With thousands of games to choose from spanning 40 years of gaming history we’re confident everyone can find something they will enjoy.”
