A revamped channel offering with less duplication of sports across channels and more predictable scheduling
Africa’s leading sports channels provider, SuperSport wants to make it easy for sports fans to find their favourite sport on DStv. The SuperSport offering has been revamped to offer viewers easier navigation and less duplications.
When the 2018 European football season kicks off in August, SuperSport 3 will be the Home of the Premier League for DStv Premium, Compact+ and Compact customers while SuperSport 7 will be their go-to channel for all La Liga football action. SuperSport 11 and SuperSport 12 will remain on the platform as permanent event channels for overflow live sport giving subscribers a wider choice of live sport.
SuperSport will also introduce a new sports channels: SuperSport 10, which, in addition to one live Premier League and La Liga Match per week, will also include a UEFA Champions League and Europa League match as well as Athletics, Rugby 7’s and the newest sports genre growing in popularity – eSports, across all DStv packages. SuperSport 8, which currently airs overflow live events on DStv Premium, will treat DStv Premium, Compact +, Compact and Family customers to the Premier League & La Liga overflow matches plus FIFA internationals and the IAAF Diamond League athletics in glorious High Definition (HD).
All sport currently available on SuperSport Select and SuperSport Select 2 will henceforth be available on SuperSport 9 and SuperSport 10.
This is great news as DStv customers will continue to enjoy the same amount of exciting local and international sport but on a leaner and well-organised World of Champions.
SuperSport is still the home of the best sporting action on the African continent, and with an enhanced HD and a streamlined channel offering, we believe we have made the viewing experience a whole lot better
