    KyLinTV president Duan Jianbing shared, "Singapore has both high ethnic Chinese population and good broadband infrastructure provides KyLinTV a good platform. As a new payTV provider in town to reach out our target audience fast, through the use of IPTV technology and strong Chinese contents, I believe KyLinTV's many advantages, including its advanced technology, the professional team, the excellent customer service and mature marketing strategy, all combine to ensure that this same high quality of service will be delivered to its new Singapore subscribers just like how we delighted the North American and European, while providing a bridge linking the members of the Chinese diaspora to their hometowns.
