SuperSport has introduced a new channel line up to give sport lovers a better viewing experience and make it easy for fans to find their favourite sport. DStv customers can look forward to 14 SuperSport and one eSports channel, with less duplication of sports across channels and more predictable scheduling.
DStv customers on all packages can look forward to a rebranded SuperSport Select, now on SS10, and DStv Extra customers will get more sports channels – SS7 and SS8.
Fans of football can follow La Liga on SS7 exclusively, and SS11 (new channel) and SS12 will become permanent events channels to be the home for overflow sport.
“We believe that these changes will give our 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 sport, and no impact on live events, the overall sport viewing will be enhanced,” said Gideon Khobane, CEO for SuperSport.
eSports is growing in popularity, so GINX eSports TV that is currently available on DStv Now, will find a home on DStv channel 240. DStv Premium, DStv Extra and DStv Compact customers will be able to enjoy the action on this unique channel.
And of course, most of the channels will be in glorious HD – SS Blitz, SS1-9 and SS11 will be in HD, as will GINX eSports TV. SS8 is currently in SD and will change to HD.
Gideon reassured fans “SuperSport is still the home of the best sporting action on the African continent.”
The new channel line up will take effect on Tuesday 4 July. Sports fans will start their viewing on Channel 200 on SuperSport Blitz through to SuperSport 12.
DStv customers can go to SuperSport.com to see how the sports are allocated across the different SuperSport channels.
And remember to tune in – at home on your decoder, or through DStv Now online or via the DStv Now app on your tablet or smartphone. DStv Now is available to our DStv Compact, DStv Extra and DStv Premium customers at no extra charge. You don't have to miss a second of the action.
