SuperSport has announced sweeping plans to ensure a steady stream of content with all 240 matches broadcast live plus an array of support programming. DStv Botswana viewers are in for even more of a treat as the PSL moves from DStv Compact down to DStv Family.
“We are constantly looking for more ways in which we can make great content more accessible to our viewers here in Botswana,” says the MultiChoice Botswana Managing Director, Stephanie Pillay. “It’s undeniable that the DStv Premiership is a league that resonates strongly with Batswana viewers and so it was important for us to bring the league down to one of our lower packages, making it more affordable to watch.”
When the DStv Premiership begins on 4th Friday on SuperSport PSL, DStv Family subscribers will be able to be part of the big games as well as all the complimentary content that comes along with the league for only P260 per month.
Magazine shows In going all out to make the season a memorable one, SuperSport has also re-jigged its magazine show line-up as follows: • Extra Time (Mondays, 8.30pm).
• The NFD Show (Tuesdays, 6pm).
• Fan Base (Sundays, after the day’s final match).
• Woza Weekend (Thursdays, 6pm).
• Tactics and Trends, featuring Phumudzo Manenzhe and guests (Thursdays, 9pm).
The live match-day experience will continue to be anchored by Carol Tshabalala, Thomas Mlambo, and Thato Moeng, who all bring heavyweight credibility to proceedings. Additionally, sideline presenters will include Phumlani Msibi, Lerato Phago, Lwazi Ziqubu, Fiso Mazibuko and Lindiwe Nxumalo. Digital and social With the DStv Premiership traditionally hot property on the social channels, efforts will be redoubled to have the very best short-form content, highlights and special moments included, together with a dedicated home on supersport.com and the Blitz news channel.
Technical SuperSport, which prides itself on broadcasting every goal to come, will be helped in their endeavours by the brand-new IP 1 Outside Broadcast unit that was recently shipped from Europe. Cutting-edge technology will therefore go up a notch, with SuperSport’s graphics blending with world-class augmented reality and virtual reality to ensure the optimal viewing experience.
