Too Expensive? Here’s how to watch the World Cup in Singapore for Free

Would you believe it? In 2006, it cost you 10.50 S$ to watch the telecast World Cup matches in Singapore while sitting on your own sofa in your comfi home, this time, 2010, you have to shell out S$94.16. For a football loving creature like me, this definitely comes in the exorbitant and not to be borne category.

1. Get Outside – Dude, even McDonalds is showing the Games!

So let us look at the best ways in which we can watch FIFA 2010 World Cup without paying any money to these telecom companies who consider us docile walkovers.

Of course you can watch them at your nearest community centres, Mac Donald’s, pub or club, anyway which has a big screen.

2. Buy an Indoor Antenna and get the Malaysian Channels

But if you want to screech Goalll or ~!@#$%^&*() , at home, along with your family and friends while chomping potato chips, try this option — buy an antenna which can be used indoors. There are places in Singapore especially Singapore and South Singapore which can receive Malaysian as well as Indonesian channels like RTM one and RCT one.

Not only are you going to get better signal reception, but you are also going to enjoy watching TV right in your den at home. Nevertheless, if you find the commentary going on in Malay, catch an interpreter to do the running commentary and gift him with beer. An antenna is rather cheap especially when you buy it from Funan Centre Sim Lim Square or from Mustafa Centre at around 20 S$.

A great list, it makes me sick knowing that companies are exploiting people for things like the world cup which is supposed to be a representation of the world coming together to support their teams. It is the most watched sporting event in the world and television companies trying to make money off that should not be allowed. Lucky that sometimes the bar is much more interesting than home anyway!

dear sir,
I should be grateful if I could have oneof your Iphone to use my website?. I am deaf and am in need IPhone.
Thank you and to hear from you.


The problem with watching at most public places (I watched at Chijmes) is it gets very crowded and food/beer usually over-priced.
