GAHMEN TALK COCK, WORLD CUP ONLY FOR RICH PEOPLE TO WATCH?

Singaporeans (ok lah, and PRs too), who doesn’t love watching Word Cup football? Fine, who doesn’t love watching FREE World Cup football? Well as long as we’re here we’re not going to because the government has again given cable operators a free hand to fleece us.

Senior Minister of State for Information and Communication Lawrence Wong says the Singapore government has no say in the prices of subscription for World Cup matches. He added that the footballing powers that be will decide on the sum we have to pay.

Well take a look at this and decide if the Singapore government is trying to pull the wool over our eyes with that whole “no say” shenanigan.

Singapore $112 for all games
Indonesia FREE
India FREE
China FREE
Japan FREE
South Korea FREE
Philippines FREE
Thailand FREE
Cambodia FREE
Australia FREE
Vietnam FREE

Has it sunk in that in Asia we’re one of the very few countries that have to pay to watch the World Cup? Citizens of most other Asian countries get to watch it free on state media TV channels (there’s at least something state media is good for).

Malaysians pay around $40, and Hong Kongers pay about $30, compared to what Singaporeans pay – $112.

As for the part about how we’ve to Pay and Pay because of our purchasing power – well Lawrence, Japan is the third richest country in the world. Where is Singapore in the big picture of things?

Wayang also must wayang ho say lah Lawrence. Otherwise the one who pai say will be you.So don’t anyhow the government has no say, if it doesn’t want to do anything to help Singaporeans enjoy the biggest sporting event in the world for this year.
