In a bid to make it easy for sports fans to find their favorite sport on DSTv, SuperSport is revamping its programming to offer viewers an easier navigation and much less duplication.
This new schedule will take effect on July 4th, with provision of a series of sporting events as they unroll through out the summer.
Gideon Khobane, the SuperSport CEO, says that they are making these changes to give DStv customers an even better viewing experience, making it easier to navigate the wide variety of sports in the back-to-back channels. With less duplication and repeats of sport, the overall sport viewing is being enhanced.
Upon the kickoff of the European football season in August, SuperSport3 will be the Home of the Premier League for DStv Premium, Compact+ and Compact customers while SuperSport7 will be their go-to channel for all La Liga football action. SuperSport11 and SuperSport12 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 two new sports channels: SuperSport8 which 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) and; SuperSport10, 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.
All sport currently available on SuperSport Select and SuperSport Select 2 will henceforth be available on SuperSport9 and SuperSport10 while SuperSport8, which will now be available across Africa, will replace SuperSport 9 East in East Africa.
