Get some of that Malaysian signal
But having to get out of the house at 2am wearing pyjamas just to watch free games may prove too much for some Singaporeans.
Especially those who know that Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM), Malaysia’s national broadcaster, will be airing 41 of the 64 World Cup matches for free.
And Singaporeans in the past have really attempted to share in Malaysia’s blessings by buying rabbit-ear antennas to receive our neighbour’s signals.
The strength of the signal varies according to location.
Nonetheless, some Singaporeans are already making plans to try it out.
Said Mr Aaron Yong, an avid football fan who lives in Bukit Panjang,
If my home is near enough to receive an RTM signal, I will try. It is free, after all.
All geared up
Most of us will probably be turning up all fresh and awake for the matches at the CCs (then yawn the next day).
56 venues leh.
So RTM need not worry so much about freeloading Singaporeans.
