SuperSport boosts its HD offering on DStv


SuperSport is responding to growing demand for more high definition
programming by adding a seventh HD channel to its lineup. SSHD7, the HD
version of SS7, will start airing at 10am on Tuesday, 22 April 2014. SSHD7 will be
available on channel 217 to all DStv Premium customers.

“We’re living in an exciting world where cutting-edge technology rules the day,’
said Brandon Foot, acting CEO of SuperSport. “There is no better way to watch
sport than in high definition. This 7th SuperSport HD channel means that all
Barclays Premiership and Champions League football will be available in HD,
along with other popular sports such as boxing and golf.’

The channel will offer a variety of sport including European football leagues;
tennis, Sevens rugby, boxing and road running; plus golf, cycling, ice hockey,
athletics, basketball, swimming and motorsport. A limited amount of cricket may
also feature.

Mark Rayner, COO of MultiChoice South Africa, commented: “We want our DStv
customers to have the best possible viewing experience – and sport in glorious
HD delivers that. This is just one of the ways that we will be adding more value
for our customers in the coming year.’
