Mediacorp: Three highlight shows daily
Mediacorp announced last night that they will offer up to 12 hours of delayed coverage daily of the 2016 Rio Olympics.
From Aug 7 to 21, the free-to-air broadcaster will show daily highlights and delayed telecasts on the okto channel, as well as Toggle.
There will be three highlights shows daily, of which one is a half-hour programme focusing on Team Singapore athletes in Rio. All daily highlights are also available for viewing later on Toggle.
Mediacorp is the only broadcaster in Singapore to offer any form of television coverage of the Games.
"The market for sports coverage rights has been very competitive over the last several years," said MediaCorp deputy CEO Chang Long Jong in a media statement.
