MediaCorp announced how they will cover the 28th SEA Games in Singapore. They will broadcast the 28th South East Asian Games on Toggle, their internet on-demand video service.
Viewers on the move and Singaporeans who are overseas can unfortunately not watch streams on Toggle. MediaCorp says this is due to copyright issues.
Television viewers can view the Games on okto, in high definition (HD) quality. Channel 5 will broadcast the Opening Ceremony with the encore telecasts available for both the Opening Ceremony and the daily Games highlight show, “Today At The Games”. Capital 95.8FM radio station will broadcast the Opening and Closing ceremonies ‘live’ with Chinese commentary, while Channel U will be showcasing key SEA Games events in dual sound with English and Chinese commentary throughout the competition.
MediaCorp’s Out-of-Home (OOH) media will screen the Opening and Closing ceremonies ‘live’ at seven outdoor screens. News media such as Channel NewsAsia, TODAY, MediaCorp Radio stations and online platforms will provide coverage including the latest scores, daily Games updates, athlete profile stories revolving ‘life around the games’ and over 60 vignettes that reveal fascinating aspects of the SEA Games.
Mr Bernard Lim, Head, MediaCorp SEA Games Steering Committee, said: “The 28th SEA Games is especially significant for Singaporeans, being an event held at home in Singapore. MediaCorp is pleased to deliver the Games to viewers watching at home or accessing the content digitally, whenever they want, on the devices they choose. We hope to engage and inspire all Singaporeans, wherever they are, to cheer for Team Singapore and to celebrate their successes.”
