As we gear up for the Olympics (finally!), we’re probably looking to have another Joseph-Schooling-Gold-moment just like the one 5 years ago—everyone on their feet screaming their lungs out as they’re glued to the screen.
And to do exactly that, we should probably find out how we can watch the Games on the big or small screen.
Luckily, our beloved media monopoly, Mediacorp, will be providing everyone with many ways to catch the action live across the 17-day event!

All 14 of these channels will be free on meWatch.sg and on the meWatch app. Notably, one of these channels will be focused on Singaporean athletes and their events at the Games.
As reported by CNA, Channel 5 will also be airing more than 200 hours of coverage. Breaking news and updates will also be available across the company’s news bulletins, radio stations and digital portals—CNA, TODAY, 8Days, Berita Mediacorp and Seithi Mediacorp.

Earlier in May, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong gave a message of support to our athletes through Facebook, noting that the pandemic has deeply affected the sporting community.
He also wrote about the Team Singapore campaign, meant to show support to our local Olympic and Paralympic athletes who have been training hard despite the disruptions. The inspiring video featured many of our local sportspersons, which you can watch, here!
