SuperSport has introduced a new channel line-up to give sport lovers more 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.
Viewers on all packages can also look forward to a rebranded SuperSport Select, now on SS10; and DStv Extra customers will get more sports channels on SS7 and SS8.
Football fans can follow La Liga on SS7 exclusively, SS12 and on the new channel which will become a permanent events channel.
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, says 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, Extra and Compact customers will be able to enjoy all their sports action on this channel.
SS8 is currently in SD and will change to HD, while SS Blitz, SS1-9, SS11 and GINX eSports TV are already in HD.
This new channel line-up will take effect on 4 July 2017.
SuperSport is still the home of the best sporting action on the African continent, Khobane reassured fans.
DStv customers can go to the DStv or SuperSport websites to see how the sports are allocated across the different SuperSport channels.
