Singtel CAST preview
For the sake of stamping out the COVID-19 virus, Singaporeans are united as one nation to stay at home and minimise outside contact. While it’s clear that this is for the greater good, staying in almost 24/7 for a whole month is no joke. There’s only so much social media you can scroll through, TikTok dance choreographies to learn, and Dalgona coffees to whip up.
For those who have a long wishlist of new shows to watch but have yet to subscribe to a streaming platform, Singtel CAST is offering a free preview all the way till 30th June 2020. Get instant access to a whopping 64,000 hours of shows across genres and languages, without having to commit to a contract or install a Set-Top Box. We hope you’re well stocked up on snacks, ‘cause it’s time for marathon sessions immortalised in the binge-watching Hall Of Fame.

With nationwide school closures, kiddos can get pretty restless while stuck at home. Don’t even get us started on the Herculean affair of keeping them occupied while stay-home mums and dads attempt to crank out some actual work.
Reward them with moderate amounts of screen time, made better by Singtel CAST’s extensive array of children’s programmes. This includes smash hits like We Bare Bears and Peppa Pig, which will have them chuckling with glee while learning little lessons along the way.

Many Singaporeans are using this stay-home period to enrich and upgrade themselves. Enrolling into online courses and delving into non-fiction books is all fine and dandy, but kicking back with a refreshing drink and the telly on is also a way to boost your noggin.
