KUALA LUMPUR: Astro subscribers who are sports fans in the country are in for a feast during the Olympics. They will be able to surf through from one sport with a touch of a button on their remote controls, thanks the new Gateway to the Olympics. 

To use this interactive service, viewers need just switch to Astro Supersport and press the red button. Six windows will be made available to them and they can choose whichever sport they wish to view. 

The first two channels will be made available to viewers today. 

In the lead-up to the Olympics, the two channels will be airing a series of Olympics-related documentaries. 

Meanwhile, three lucky Malaysians will get to visit the Olympics, courtesy of Milo. The three winners of the OCM-Milo Celebrating Champions contest will get an all-expenses paid trip to Athens for nine-days and also RM10,000 in pocket money.  

The top three winners were Tan Chee Booon from Kulim, Normaizan Yessuan of Shah Alam and Norsiah Ahmad of Kangar.  

They will each be allowed to bring a partner to Athens as well. 

All six will also get to attend the opening ceremony and witness the Games daily.
