13 Live Streams to Watch in Singapore

13 Broadcasts Religion Fitness Art

When you think of live streams you’re probably visualising people playing video games online. But what if I told you that’s not all that live broadcasts have to offer. Here are 13 live streams that aren’t about video games.

In view of the contagious COVID-19 virus, Singapore has suspended all events and mass gatherings. Furthermore, all entertainment venues will be closed to reduce the risk of transmission.

After the initial stun from the announcement, organisations have found an alternative way to host their gatherings and encourage their followers to stay home.  Whether it’s professional live streams on social media or beginner broadcasts, live streams have seemed to be able to replace face-to-face interaction.

While gamers continue to dominate the concept of live streaming, other content creators have also dabbled into this fairly new way of video presentation.

If video games aren’t for you, here are 13 live streams that you may find interesting!

Religious Lectures

With the suspension of religious services, several places of worship have started to conduct online masses to allow worshippers to continue practicing their religion at home. What’s great about these live broadcasts is that even after they end, they can be uploaded for people to rewatch them anytime.

Fitness Regimen

As gyms do their part in helping to minimise community contact, fit junkies are encouraged to stay home. But doing so won’t turn you into a couch potato. Not if you’re watching fitness broadcasts and doing them at home! It’s like having a virtual personal trainer to keep your body moving just like you would in a gym. Fret not if you don’t own any gym equipment, these fitness classes have been specially designed to be carried out using your body weight! With classes for high intensity interval training (HIIT) circuits, yoga and meditation, you’ll definitely find the one for you!

Furthermore, you’ll be able to gain inspiration for themes and concepts that you can explore more of.

Now you may be asking, what’s so great about live streams?

Regardless of where you are on the globe, you’re able to watch live streams as long as you have a mobile device and access to the internet.  

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to find and get notified of live streams, especially on social media platforms. 

On Instagram, users who are live will have the account profiles highlighted on the home page and lined up first among the story posts. Meanwhile for Youtube, there is a dedicated section just for live streams. For these platforms and on Facebook, you can also choose to be notified when a page or account you’re following goes live.

A great feature of live streams is the live comment box. When you comment your thoughts and questions, the host of the broadcast is able to view your comment and reply in real time! Not only will you have your question answered, but you’ll also have had a personal interaction with your preferred content creator. 

Live streams can be about anything

From “Get ready with me”s (GRWM), “Ask-Me-Anything”s (AMA) and even eating shows. While some streamers have scheduled and regular shows, others may go live depending on their mood. Live streams are also very similar to video calls. When you’re watching someone just going about their day and talking about how life has been, it’s like video calling a friend. 

These live streams are just a handful of what’s available online. With applications such as Youtube, Facebook and Instagram having live stream features, many more influencers and content creators are going live to share a part of their lives with their audience.
