DStv customers are in for a massive treat as SuperSport launches a pop-up channel ahead of The Money Fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor.
DStv channel 213 will be available to all DStv customers from Premium to Access and will go live on Saturday, 19 August and broadcast daily from 17:00 to 01:00 until the eve of the fight on Sunday, 27 August.
DStv channel 213 will have an amazing schedule with re-runs of several of Mayweather’s great fights, his visit to Africa in 2014 and the popular All Access shows, which offer a fly-on-the-wall viewing experience.
Loud clothes, piles of cash, fast cars and trash-talking. It’s all there in a fascinating package of boxing and bluster that will fill the pop-up channel dedicated to next weekend’s The Money Fight. Despite its unusual nature, the fight has attracted international attention with fans and media alike drawn to the radiant personalities of both contestants.
This is another value-added service which is testimony to the company’s commitment to putting its customers first.
This follows closely on the back of the latest move to provide DStv Family customers with all the La Liga games as well as a selected number of great international and local channels. The company’s mission is to continuously add value and enrich customers’ DStv experience.
SuperSport will cross to Las Vegas at 01:00 on Sunday, 27 August for the action-packed undercard with the main bout expected to start after 05:00.
Big fight fans can watch on their decoders on DStv Premium or on their smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs on DStv Now online or on the app, or on the SuperSport app.
Highlights of the fight will be available on DStv Catch Up in the hours after the event – this will be on your decoder, or via DStv Now.
DStv Catch Up Plus, available on connected Exploras, and Catch Up on DStv Now, will carry the full fight later in the day.
Non-DStv customers will be able to watch the fight on the internet TV service Showmax later in the day. Showmax can be viewed on smartphones and tablets, smart TVs, Apple TV and Android TV, and via web browser.
