Eurosport and Setanta Sports are launching in Singapore for the first time, rolling out on the Sports Action Pass on Mediacorp’s OTT platform Toggle.
The deal with Discovery Networks Asia Pacific brings the two platforms to Toggle users for S$7.90 per month. “We continue to build our sports offerings following the success of the World Cup,” said Anil Nihalani, the head of digital products and technology at Mediacorp. “This tie-up with Eurosport and Setanta Sports brings premium sports to our viewers at an attractive price. Subscription on Toggle is also easier with instant activation online—no set-top box installation and the service is available on a wide variety of devices including mobile and Smart TVs.”
Anna Pak Burdin, general manager for Southeast Asia at Discovery Networks Asia Pacific, noted, “With the launch of Eurosport and Setanta Sports on Toggle, we continue to bring the best of our sports content to viewers in Singapore, now across all screens. Through Mediacorp’s Toggle platform, we are able to bring all the action to our passionate sports fans on the go, providing flexibility to customers in how they access their favorite sporting events and teams.”
Eurosport’s portfolio covers cycling, tennis, judo, wrestling, winter sports, football and motorsports. Setanta Sports focuses on rugby coverage, such as the upcoming 2018 Rugby Championship featuring South Africa and New Zealand.
Toggle delivers a range of ad-supported catch-up content from Mediacorp plus several subscription packages. In addition to the Sports Action Pass, there’s the Club TV Pass with MUTV and Chelsea TV and the ad-free Toggle Prime, which delivers exclusive premieres.
