Multichoice announced today that they will be adding a 2nd HD channel to its HD PVR subscribers.
From the 26th of December, DSTV are planning to go live with Supersport HD dedicated to sports coverage. This coincides with the start of the cricket test match between SA and England.
Initially, Supersport HD will broadcast sports intermittently, but will move over to a full 24-hour service on the 12 of February, which coincides with the start of Super 14 Rugby.
Supersport HD will be broadcast on channel 171 and schedules published on supersport.com as well as other media channels.
“We are pleased that we are able to make this viewing experience part of our DStv offering. High Definition is the new international television standard and MultiChoice would like to ensure that our customers are always kept abreast of new developments. The new Supersport HD channel will make viewing sport on DStv an even more exciting and rewarding experience,” said Nico Meyer, CEO of MultiChoice South Africa regarding the imminent launch.
This is just another reason why I believe Supersport to be the no.1 sports broadcaster in the world.
