Now that sounds like a business doomed to failure. You want to open a sports pub here and you don't know that there are only two program providers here? Go find a security job somewhere and save your money.

sms i nearly wrote something last night but thought it might go down badly especially as it's so difficult to find out who supplies sports channels here.

I don't understand how people can manage to find this website yet are unable to find the simplest things like "TV channels singapore". ](*,) ](*,)
Don't p*ss me off! I am running out of places to hide the bodies.

I don't know why a simple question is so hard for some people to answer :roll:

Anyway - STARHUB is going to be your option and you can get ESPN and Starsports, plus a golf channel and football channel, its about 6 sports channels all together I think..

Word of warning - private saterlite dishes are not allowed in Singapore and so you have to make do with these channels. So if the sport is not on, you can't watch it (apart from online streams!)

mopsie102 - you might want to give consideration to some form of IPTV (i.e. TV over the Internet)....check the legailities of it. My understanding is that as long as you are paying a subscription then you may be OK, but check with the usual government departments to be sure.

HTH, Mr. P

[Edit: clarification regarding legality..tks for the pickup RNT]

Will adjust my post...(FYI - yes I *think* so as long as it's a paid subscription) - thanks for the qualification.

Some are legal some are not.
Trouble with doing it over the internet is it is unrealible even with the most expensive connections. For personal use it is fine, but for a business i am not sure.
However if you can manage it with a good quality and show some PPV boxing I would definatly frequent your new sports bar......
