Starmobile Releases Independent Digital TV Signal Test Results

In line with the recent launch of the Knight Vision, Starmobile has released their independent digital TV signal tests in Metro Manila.

The series of Digital TV tests was done fairly recently (from April 10 – 19) and was conducted in Starmobile kiosks and concept stores located in 14 of the most popular malls in Metro Manila using the Starmobile Knight Vision.

In these tests, both GMA 1Seg and GMA News TV came out on top in terms of coverage presence. Both of these channels were present on 10 of the 14 locations where Starmobile conducted the test.



Meanwhile, ABS-CBN Sports and Action lead the pact as far as digital TV signal quality is concerned, getting an average of 3.9 out of 4 signal bars. AksyonTV and ABS-CBN was tied in second place, both getting 3.8 signal bars out of the possible 4.

According to Starmobile Product Development Head Michael Chen, the company will “continue to conduct DTV tests nationwide so that we could better assess the proliferation of this technology.”

      1seg yan…. hahah naka palabas na rin ang ch2 at sports TV while last year naka encrypt pa sya… (tested with T-01c)

    • easy e says:

      They tested both 1seg and full seg channels on all available channels. Ang comment ko lang sa ginawa ng star mobile ay bakit sa malls lang nag test at di sa mga residential areas. Parang walang sistema (hindi siguro marunong sa basics ng research).
