Super viewing on SuperSport for everyone.

News 19 October 2020

From Premium to Access, everyone is getting full SuperSport access in late October with the DStv app.

Calling all DStv customers subscribed to Compact Plus, Compact, Family, Access and EasyView packages – from Saturday, 24 to Sunday, 25 October, MultiChoice Group is opening all SuperSport channels for you to stream all weekend via the DStv app (previously known as DStv Now)

That’s right – all weekend long, more DStv customers will have access to SuperSport content that is exclusive to DStv Premium.

During the nationwide lockdown, DStv opened its Premium-exclusive content to a wider pool of its customers through Open Window viewing periods. Now, this open window comes as soccer fans ready for the kick-off of the DStv Premiership on Saturday, 24 October 2020.

DStv was announced in September as the title sponsor for the Premier Soccer League in a five-year deal beginning in season 2020/21. DStv will be opening the full spectrum of SuperSport channels to more of its valued customers from 24 to 25 October to celebrate the start of the new season.

Although many eyes will be on soccer, the additional access means that more customers will also experience an incredible line-up of other sports including Vodacom SuperRugby Unlocked, New Zealand’s Mitre 10 Cup, PGA and LPGA golf, Formula 1 and the Giro d’Italia.

“‘Babize Bonke’ is not just a tagline, but rather our clear intention to rally many more South Africans around local soccer on display in the country’s top league. Through our ‘Open Window’, we are calling and inviting sports-loving South Africans to enjoy the games with us across our diverse platforms, accessing the best in local and international sports content through our SuperSport channels,” says CEO of General Entertainment & Connected Video at MultiChoice Group, Yolisa Phahle.
