A MAN has issued a public apology to StarHub today for "having facilitated illegal access" to its cable channels using "unauthorised decoders".

In a half-page advertisement in The Straits Times, Mr Huang Zhijian, 42, apologises "unreservedly" to the telco, which has refused to say more about the issue.

Industry experts say that the apology could refer to one of two likely scenarios.

First, Mr Huang might have been part of a syndicate selling decoders that unlawfully decrypt StarHub content from a cable access point in residential homes.
