Paying a high price

Michael YP Ang asked:
It was mentioned in Parliament that SG are price takers when dealing with FIFA regarding World Cup broadcasts. Be that as it may, the govt should take note that the UK & Belgium have managed to force FIFA to sell rights to ONLY free-to-air channels. Presumably, the rights are sold at a lower price to free-to-air channels.

I agree with you. It is clear that our Government ministers are incompetent and the system in Singapore sucks. We end up being suckers and pay the highest price in the world to watch the broadcast. 
Wow, isn't it nice? After becoming the most expensive city, we now get the recognition of paying the highest price per capita for the World Cup rights.
