Streaming sports in Singapore: Watch the action on the go with these services

Football, racing, golf, boxing – you name your sport of choice, chances are you can stream it your way in Singapore. This is how.

Streaming sport in Singapore

Like in most parts of the globe, the streaming of content and particularly live sport has come a long way in Singapore.

A market that was once overloaded with pop-up-fuelled, unreliable and often illegal streaming options now has a number of official, legitimate choices for viewing sport on your preferred device.

Compare sports streaming platforms

In Singapore, depending on the provider, sports streaming can be available on mobiles and tablets, plus certain Smart TVs and gaming consoles. It’s always worth checking with providers to ascertain device compatibility for your chosen sport.

International sports streaming companies like DAZN and beIN SPORTS have access to a variety of professional sports in Singapore. They offer a wide range of options and prices, with many also coming with free trial periods.

In Singapore DAZN has access to some of the biggest name boxers in the world including Anthony Joshua, Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez. There’s also services like meWATCH which has options to subscribe to beIN SPORTS content.

Sports streaming offers Singaporeans a new way to get their sports instead of relying on Pay TV services and channels such as Fox Sports, Singtel TV and StarHub.

You can also access sports leagues or individual teams through dedicated apps or channels directly from the source, such as F1 TV, WWE Network, Watch NRL and Watch AFL.

It’s also not just the live action itself sports fans seek. Features like split screens, highlights, multiple camera angles and dedicated shows are also selling points.

Free trials are common. iOS and Android devices, Smart TVs and apps are all options to access content. In an increasingly crowded market, more sports and improved features are becoming available all the time.

What you need to stream sport in Singapore

Mobile phone carriers in Singapore have been quick to jump onto the sports streaming bandwagon. Mobile providers like Singtel and StarHub have established their own sports streaming sites and secured access to content.

Apple TV, Chromecast, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Amazon Fire TV, plus Mac and PC, are other ways to access some of the content. Providers typically have monthly and annual subscriptions.

How much data does streaming live sport use in Singapore?

Again here it depends on your provider and bandwidth. For example, Chromecast’s video output is 1080p, while it also has 4K available on Chromecast Ultra. Apple TV also has 1080p and 4K options.

If you have an Internet connection speed of around 30Mbps for download and 2.5Mbps for uploading you should be free to access content to most devices without any buffering or other issues. Streaming sport in 4K uses around 7GB/hour while HD uses a little less at around 3GB/hour.
