meWATCH (previously known as Toggle) is a digital entertainment service owned by Mediacorp, one of the leading media companies in Singapore. Launched in 2013 as an over-the-top service as well as an entertainment and lifestyle website, the service brings on-demand videos, TV channels, live sporting action and entertainment news to viewers.

What makes meWATCH different from other streaming services like Netflix or Viu is that it offers live streaming of Mediacorp’s free-to-air channels, such as Channel 5, Channel 8 and Channel U, as well as video streaming or on-demand content from Mediacorp’s archived library.

As of early 2019, you can access pay cable giant HBO’s extensive library through all six HBO channels and on-demand videos with its streaming service HBO GO. Additionally, if you’re into Japanese animation, you may indulge in top anime series across all genres with Animax.

You can enjoy the service both online and on the go as meWATCH is available on mobile devices, computers, smart TVs, Apple TV, Chromecast and your Toggle Red Button-enabled TV. From news to dramas, movies to variety shows and sports to kids entertainment, meWATCH has you covered. Read on to find out exactly what to expect.
