SuperSport Revamps Channel Offering


Africa’s leading sports channels provider, SuperSport, has revamped its channels to make it easier for fans to find their favourite sports on DStv and GOtv.

The new channels format will debut on July 4 and will offer viewers easier navigation and less duplications.

“We’re making these changes to give DStv and GOtv customers an even better viewing experience, making it easier to navigate our wide variety of sports in the back-to-back channels. As there will be less duplication and repeats of sports and no impact on live events, the overall sport viewing will be enhanced, as will our overall HD offering,” said Gideon Khobane, SuperSport CEO.

When the 2018 European football season kicks off in August, SuperSport 3 will be channel for the English Premier League for DStv Premium, Compact Plus and Compact customers, while SuperSport 7 will be the channel for Spanish La Liga matches. SuperSport 11 and SuperSport 12 will remain on the platform as permanent event channels for overflow live sports, giving subscribers a wider choice of live sports.

SuperSport will also introduce two new sports channels: SuperSport 8 which will treat DStv Premium, Compact Plus, Compact and Family customers to the Premier League and La Liga overflow matches as well as FIFA internationals and the IAAF Diamond League athletics in High Definition (HD) and; SuperSport 10, which in addition to one live English Premier League and La Liga match per week, will also include a UEFA Champions League and an Europa League match as well as athletics, Rugby 7’s and the newest sports genre growing in popularity – eSports, across all DStv packages.

All sports currently available on SuperSport Select and SuperSport Select 2 will henceforth be available on SuperSport 9 and SuperSport 10.
