my m1 fibre connected to the internet port in yellow. so I just plug in starhub fibre to any ethernet port and it should work?
No you have to plug it in LAN port 1 (next to yellow) and restart the ONT. Then it works.

Hmm, you have both Starhub and M1 Fibre? In that case you will need one router for Starhub and another router for M1.

M1 ONT -- M1 Netgear Router
Starhub ONT -- Starhub Linksys router

There are higher end router which can combine two fibre internet into one. They need to have two WAN ports.

If your router has Dual WAN feature like my ASUS AC88U router then u can run two fibre on one router. Just enable
Dual WAN on the router and select one of the LAN port on the router as the second WAN port in the router setting. Then plug the cable in accordingly. If your router is single WAN then you need one router for each isp. The problem may be your router do not have dual WAN. For M1 alone any router can be used but running 2 isp on one router is another thing which required a dual WAN router.

For this, both modem goes into ethernet then the console outputs to router? How does this work?

I presume the advantage is you can access to the better Internet? Also have flexibility in terms there is no down time?

Don't need. Fiber usually allow for 2 ports. U have m1 and Starhub can come to install their fiber.
Currently my Data Point at the TV is using M1. In this case, most likely I would need to cancel Starhub Cable TV after 30 Jun.
Just wonder now how to connect current TV to watch local channels? Would there be any android box which could watch local channels? Maybe see could get DTV Starter Kit from IMDA?

For Toggle, it is easy, get a DVB-T2 Tuner box and Antenna and then you have better quality than Toggle. If your TV has built-in DVB-T2 Tuner, then you only need an Antenna.

Or you can try casting from your mobile phone since you have Nvidia Shield TV.

For Taiwanese TV, you can try to see if Fain TV from Google Play Store is good enough or not. It is free but with quite some ads.

Other possibilities

SingTel Cast Asian Plus pack if you are SingTel customers.

thanks! hmm now to do some math.
my StarHub TV contract is already over
only reason keeping it is the 30% off Mobile plans - the last contract ends in Nov

EDIT: TVB Anywhere HD quality isn't as good as StarHub's it seems
