How to Watch the Olympics from the Philippines and Online [Quick Reference]

by Ka Edong on July 27, 2012

When I watched the Sydney Olympics in 2000, I was enthralled by the spectacle. I was watching with full attention in Baguio on cable TV. At a certain point, I felt a deep understanding how the entire world is really just one – we are all connected. I felt the excitement in the faces of the athletes. I felt how much it was really a coming together of humans in peace and unity.

I am looking forward to watching the Olympics, especially the opening ceremony. I know that it will be another celebration of the one-ness of the entire world. Also, it is another opportunity for me to cheer on the Philippine Team representing our country in London.

I’d like to do my share in helping Filipinos experience the epic event of the 2012 Olympics in London. Here’s a quick reference on how to watch the Olympics from the Philippines.
