SuperSport has unveiled a new channel line-up to offer favourite sport a dedicated home of its own after dropping the numbering system it has used for more than two decades.
From September 1, SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv will be able to watch special dedicated channels for leagues and sports, among them the Premier League, La Liga, WWE, UFC, tennis, motorsport, golf and several other.
New to DStv Premium customers across the continent will be the launch of SuperSport Grandstand. There will now be up to 19 SuperSport channels with ESPN and ESPN 2, on channels 218 and 219.
GOtv will offer 5 Supersport channels, plus the recently relaunched ESPN on channel 37 (137 – Ghana/337 – Uganda).
“This is a landmark decision in SuperSport’s history and one I’m convinced will add a fresh and invigorating dimension to our broadcasts,” said Gideon Khobane, Chief Executive of SuperSport.
“The changes will mean that additional SuperSport channels of local and international sporting content will be added to the DStv and GOtv platforms.”
