When the continent's top footballers gather in South Africa in January for the much-anticipated Africa Cup of Nations, DStv and GOtv subscribers will see the action in true SuperSport style, writes Moses Mugalu.
With live games and HD coverage, plus magazine shows, detailed pre and post-game studio analysis from leading football experts and well-packaged highlights, SuperSport is set to provide an optimal viewing experience to viewers in 47 African countries.
Pleased that DStv and GOtv subscribers will have the opportunity to watch the Afcon live on SuperSport, MultiChoice Africa CEO Nico Meyer says: "African football continues to develop, producing some of the finest talent in the world. Afcon is a showcase for this skill and strength and so we are very happy that we can offer DStv and GOtv subscribers the opportunity to watch action from the tournament. Afcon is especially significant for MultiChoice because, as a business, we've partnered with SuperSport to invest widely in creating a platform for several African domestic leagues. We are committed to showcasing the stars of this continent."
DStv Premium subscribers with access to an HD PVR decoder can watch all 32 games live and in high definition - there will be 28 games on the dedicated Afcon channel SuperSport HD 2 and 4 games on SuperSport HD 1 (which will be specifically used as an overflow channel for games that kick off at the same time).
Meanwhile, DStv Premium subscribers (without an HD PVR decoder) can watch all 32 games live - 28 games on the dedicated Afcon channel SuperSport 4 and 4 games on SuperSport Blitz. DStv Premium subscribers also have access to SuperSport Select which, whilst not a dedicated Afcon channel, will also screen 28 Afcon games.
