Singtel TV to broadcast action on two dedicated channels and mobile app

Singaporeans will be able to catch the nation's athletes in action at the SEA Games at home or on-the-go, as part of Singtel's extensive coverage of the June 5-16 multi-sports extravaganza.

Singtel TV subscribers can watch the likes of swimmer Joseph Schooling and bowler Jazreel Tan go for gold on two dedicated, 24/7 channels. Non-subscribers can get in on the action through the Singtel TV GO mobile app, which is free to everyone in Singapore and can be downloaded via Google Play and the Apple App Store.

There will also be live screenings of the Games at selected community centres across the island. Singtel is the Official Pay TV Broadcaster and Multimedia Partner for the 2015 SEA Games.

Online activities and social media posts, such as those on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, will also be analysed and aggregated into trending topics for the Singtel Cheer Aggregator, which is powered by Amobee Brand Intelligence. The Cheer Aggregator will be hosted on Singtel's website, and the public can submit posts to show their support for Team Singapore.

"Singtel Cheer Aggregator will reflect the collective support from within the community and present it in a visual way," said Singtel CEO Consumer Singapore Yuen Kuan Moon.

Sport Singapore is also expected to release an app in May for the Games, which will allow users to choose their preferred camera angles to watch the competition.

Singtel is also holding a video contest for secondary school, junior college, polytechnic and ITE students, on the person or people in their lives that have inspired them to achieve extraordinary things.

The top three submissions will win a cash prize, SEA Games tickets and merchandise for themselves and their schools. Entries should be sent in by May 20.
