SuperSport, DStv’s sporting lineup, has launched a new app that has been designed to provide users with a more exciting experience and to make content discovery easier. Relating it to the DStv Now app, all the standards like live scoring, fixtures, results, tables, news and short-form video highlights still available, but the navigation is being refined.
The major difference is that SuperSport’s live channel streaming is hosted at the DStv Now app, ensuring the breadth of DStv’s channel offerings are contained at a single destination. This will also ensure that the best viewing experience as DStv Now is optimally set up to provide the best support and stability for live streaming.
Once in need of live streaming content, users of the SuperSport app will be automatically redirected to the DStv Now app as the log-in requirements remain the same as for their their DStv log-in details, which require their smart-card number. On DStv Now, a user simply has to click on the drop-down menu to live TV and then locate their preferred channel.
The SuperSport app is available to all users, regardless of whether you are a DStv or non-DStv subscribers, although live streaming is available only to Premium, Compact and Compact Plus subscribers using their connect ID’s. Since the live-streaming technology sits in the DStv Now app, users must download it to live stream. Content is free on the apps, but data charges apply.
The SuperSport app is available in all countries. However, only sub-Saharan African countries, where SuperSport’s satellite services are available, will have access to the video highlights. The DStv Now app, on the other hand, is only available in DStv-enabled countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The SuperSport channels available on the DStv Now app include SuperSport Blitz (channel 200) through to channel 212.
Both the DStv Now and SuperSport apps are available for iOS and Android devices.
