Sports: More coming your way

Sports fans can look forward to two more sports channels on Singtel TV from today: ELEVEN and ELEVEN SPORTS.

ELEVEN is a solely football channel that will broadcast live HD coverage of the top European league and cup competitions.

The channel will feature "live" action from the Italian Serie A, English FA Cup and English League Cup, as well as the latest international football news, magazine and highlights shows.

ELEVEN SPORTS will offer a diverse line-up of sports content, including tennis, rugby, basketball, volleyball, cycling and handball.

"We are pleased to be the first in Singapore to offer these power-packed new channels to our customers," said Goh Seow Eng, managing director, home, consumer Singapore.

"We strive to offer a comprehensive buffet of sports content for fans in Singapore, and will continue to seek out the content that viewers want."

ELEVEN and ELEVEN SPORTS will be available for free preview until Aug 23, which means football fans will be able to catch "live" this weekend's Emirates Cup featuring Arsenal, Olympique Lyonnais, Villarreal and Wolfsburg.

Fans of FA Cup-holders Arsenal and Premier League champions Chelsea can catch the traditional curtain-raiser to the English football season - the FA Community Shield on Aug 2, exclusively on ELEVEN as well.

Both channels are available at no additional cost to customers who subscribe to the mio Sports channels.

Simulcast games on ELEVEN and ELEVEN SPORTS will be shown on mio Sports whenever there are multiple matches being played at the same time. All three channels will be available on the Singtel TV GO app.

With the new channels, there will be changes to the Singtel TV channel numbering.

From today, ELEVEN is on Singtel TV channel 109, ELEVEN SPORTS on channel 110 and mio Stadium on Demand will be shifted to channel 132.

From Monday, mio Sports on Demand on channel 133 will be renamed Sports on demand.
