Blue Ant Media launches Makeful HD on StarHub TV

Blue Ant Media’s Canadian lifestyle speciality channel, Makeful HD, debuts in Asia on Friday (31 August) in a carriage deal with Singapore platform StarHub.

The Makeful line up includes celebrity-led home improvement programmes, and Makeful Originals featuring design, décor, style, crafts and DIY ideas.

The new channel will also showcase the skills and creativity of local Singaporean makers.

These include furniture upcycling and repurposing enthusiasts Hock Siong & Co; paper and mixed media craft maker Aida Haron; art and lifestyle brand Love Limzy Co.; bespoke, upcycled, and handmade furniture maker Triple Eyelid Studio; and food artist Little Miss Bento.

Makeful is one of a bouquet of new channels StarHub is onboarding to fill the gap left by the exit of seven Discovery channels earlier this year as well as the exit of Discovery-owned Scripps channels from the end of August.
