    Default where is the standard from Mediacorp ? (table-tennis woman's final)

    i was waiting for the table-tennis final highlights from ch8 news at 10pm just now

    instead there is no highlights at all , just a few photos and some words ,

    no detail report at all , after that the cast still mentioned that they will interview the people

    from sport halls? make no sense to me , i thought they should have send some reporters to

    interview straightaway after they clinched the silver medal ?

    Wat standard? Free to air can't ask too much. But to be fair, CH5 got highlights every night at 11pm and they had a long segment tonite on the table tennis win. Ok we lost but still won silver.

    Quite good already lah, Ch U and 5 showing live. 2 ch let u choose, I dunno why also.

    honestly speaking i should at least expect to have 'live' telecast interview coverage in beijing,

    our local tv station really sub standard , this is not the first time , for example footballs result for EPL or CL did not provide highlights video(is it very expensive or inconvinent to provide this?) too most of the time , only photos , really miser since we already paid so much money for the EPL and CL already. our tv station damn chiam compare to other countries one.

    #1 - It is not free. We have to pay an annual TV licence fee to watch the local tv channels. You can say cheap though.

    #2 - Other countries also have this cheap TV what... but their standard...

    You need the Set top box to watch HD5.

    But if you ask me, i would not recommend buying one to watch HD5 because not all shows are HD. It's merely a telecast of regular 5 only that some programs are aired in HD.
    Either way, quality of FTA shows suck anyway.

    I ended up wasting my time and money getting a STB($400!!!) just to pull the plug off it because i subscribe to cable a few months later and needed the Input pt on TV. And just recently Starhub started having HD5 on their cable so i just needed the Starhub HD STB to view it.
    What a waste!

    Hehe.. I guess one way to see it is that other countries have more people, thus, higher total revenue.
