as usual, Mediacorp lives up to its name....giving us mostly shit programmes & being the spoilt sport.

That is why I would rather watch Golf Channel than stupid Mediacorp... They are really Singaporean TV station... Everything by the book... Timing must be by the book... They will never make it big... Disgrace to the nation...

Hope next year they will telecast on GC rather than MEDIA-COCK!

Focus focus guys - nothing to do with foreign talent and let's not drag that rubbish here. Just some stupid executive who decided to end transmission at the end of programming as per the contractual obligation. The people with the rights will be laughing now cos Mediacorp will get the blame. But yes, Mediacorp executive should take the punch - for not having the dexterity to let the contest finish.

Denis your summary nails it - so disappointing.

Don't miss the point. The point was it was a really poor call on the part of the director on shift at Mediacorps to do a hard switch at 6pm. They had already run into their pre-determined 1 hour overtime limit, and the sunday c-team in the control room just followed directions (or lack of NEW directions based on the state of play at the time).

I went from "Mediacorps rocks and is paying attention!" when they extended the programming past 5pm to "nothing has changed and they still need work as my national broadcaster" when they killed the live feed and went to a Ch 5 promo slate before switching to whatever they switched to.

It is not an FT thing. It is a MediaCorp thing. To be honest I think today was the first time I watched Ch 5 since F1. I'll tune in again for the 2013 National Day, F1, and the Singapore Open.

was blown away by media corp's decision here, to cut on a putt.. I was scrambling online .. it was a nightmare.. Why didn't they just switch it to Channel Newsasia..

Also.. how come none of the cable channels were showing it, they used to show some of the asia golf tournaments on super sport etc.

sports in singapore is really messed up.. we're jumping box to box to watch sports.. can't be right.. Mad

I guess this just sums up how the policy makers and people up there view sports in Singapore..

BSO is a National Event, supposedly Asia biggest golfing event.. I was pretty surprised they didn't telecast the first 2 days.. If GC could do it for the full four days of British and US Opens, why not BSO??

All these talks of 2010 and now 2020 etc, to me are just crap....

Nevertheless, kudos to all you guys who volunteered out there today and walked the many holes under the blazing sun !!!

Well done!

cheers

Found this on Channel 5's Facebook last night.

••OUR APOLOGIES••
Channel 5 was scheduled to carry both the Barclays Singapore Open and the FINA/ARENA Swimming World Cup today. As the Barclays Singapore Open over ran by 2 hours and we were pre-committed to broadcast FINA/ARENA Swimming World Cup "live" at 6pm, we were unfortunately not able to broadcast the final moments of Barclays Singapore Open. We apologise for upsetting our golf viewers.

The Barclays Singapore Open results and prize presentation will be shown on News 5Tonight. The playoff between Italian Matteo Manassero and South African Louis Oosthuizen will also be shown at 12mn tonight on Ch 5.

BSO has probably never ever been able to finish early, if anything it may have to go on to Mon or play sudden death. How can they even expect the event to finish at 4pm Question

Hi mate

Thank you for taking the effort to share this.

The playoff must be of such a great importance for them repeat the screening and to slot it in at 12midnight..

Great call by the station and the managers... Will try to stay up late tonight if I have nothing better to do...

cheers

To the question whether they are on the cable channels - it's on, ESPN HD all the way till Manassero's eagle putt won the tournament.
