Singapore, 10 May 2016 – Starting 16 May 2016, football fans can sign up to catch all 51 matches of the 2016 UEFA European Football Championship (UEFA EURO 2016™) 'live' on Eleven EURO HD (StarHub TV Channel 220) and Eleven Sports EURO HD (StarHub TV Channel 221) on StarHub TV.

Broadcast in high definition, Eleven EURO HD will be the main channel with 24/7 programming including ‘live’ matches, match previews, post-match analyses and daily highlights. The channel will also feature a live studio show helmed by award-winning presenter Richard Lenton and a host of guest pundits. Eleven Sports EURO HD will be a simulcast channel for concurrent ‘live’ matches. The two channels can also be accessed on laptops, tablets and smartphones.
‘Live’ coverage on Eleven EURO HD begins on 11 June 2016, 3am with the Group A match between France and Romania in the Stade de France. Football fans can also access past matches through the Catch Up feature. They just need to press the yellow button on the StarHub TV remote control while on Channel 220 to access the matches. The Catch Up feature is only available to customers with two-way HD set-top boxes.
"The best players from every corner of Europe have come out to play at UEFA EURO 2016™ and we are determined to let our customers be part of the action. With ‘live’ coverage available in high definition and on smart devices, customers will be treated a viewing experience equal to the quality of football played on the pitch," said Mr Howie Lau, Chief Marketing Officer of StarHub. “Kick-off times set at 9pm, midnight and 3am, so we understand that even the most diehard football fan may not be able to stay up for every match. As football fans ourselves, we know that this struggle is real. That is why we have enabled the Catch Up feature so our customers can view the matches at their convenience.”
