What a pleasant surprise it was today when I was surfing through the channels on mio TV to find the Rugby World Cup 2011 opening ceremony broadcast in high definition (HD) on channel 111 (3D) mio Stadium.
I had a look at Singtel’s mio TV site and they indeed confirm that they are providing HD coverage.
The Rugby World Cup– LIVE and Exclusive, 9 Sep
Brace yourselves. The toughest competition on the face of the earth is pounding its way onto mio TV. Catch all the bone-crunching action of the Rugby World Cup LIVE and exclusive in HD.
I was so happy when I confirmed that I was going to be able to see the Rugby World Cup 2011 matches on ESPN Star Sports that I forgot to check if there would be an HD channel! Anyway, now I know and thought I would share that with everyone.
That first match is over and New Zealand won quite comfortably, but Tonga could have done a lot better than the 41-10 score line suggests. A few critical errors and Tonga was punished in the first half, but they really lifted their game and made New Zealand look a bit ordinary in the second half.
If you want to make sure you don’t miss a match in HD you can use my list of Rugby World Cup 2011 match times for the Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong time zone.
