Hub E City is a cable television StarHub TV channel 825 which belongs to StarHub. Its programming consists solely of drama series and hot entertainment programmes from Taiwan, Japan and Korea, dubbed into Mandarin for dramas (variety shows remain Korean) and also airs highly rated Taiwanese variety shows presented by popular hosts. There are commercial breaks during programmes on every 30 minutes. Starhub CableTV's channel 826 is E City +2 channel, showing programmes they air 2 hours before at a 2-hour later timeslot, which is still under the Chinese Entertainment Basic Group together with its Start Over and Catch Up TV buttons. Now Starhub also has added Starhub CableTV's channel 111, a simulcast of E City channel 825. Initially both of them are complimentary only on for one and a half years from 25 April 2011 to 31 December 2012, however, the complimentary viewing extended for two more years, which ends on 31 December 2014[1]

The channel is a Homemade Theme channel by StarHub TV, along with HUB VV Drama (including On Demand), HUB Sports (4 different numbered channels, as well as HUB Sports Arena), HUB Sensasi, HUB Dunia Sinema On Demand, HUB Ru Yi Hokkien On Demand and HUB Varnam VOD.

In February 2012, for a period of 7 weeks, E City was the broadcaster of the Mandarin version of Fairprice Family Cook Off (S2). The English version was broadcast by the Asian Food Channel (Ch 435).

In July 2012, for a period of 10 weeks, E City broadcast Sunsilk Academy Fantasia, the first reality singing competition in Singaporean after two and a half years. Subscribers could view the contestants' status every night, including the delayed broadcast of the weekly rounds. Subscribers could also watch the contestants' status live on the now defunct Academy Fantasia Channel (Ch 110).
