DStv has continued down its path of trying to help bored, isolated users however they can by making yet another bundle of channels accessible to all subscribers. While previous offers such as this were relegated to DStv Now, everyone with a decoder will be able to take advantage of this “open window”.
DStv is doing the most to convince people that they’re worth keeping around, as they’ve announced some big (temporary) changes coming to their SuperSport channels. Following their announcement that certain channels will be made available to all South Africans through DStv Now, the broadcaster has announced that starting from today, SuperSport 1, a channel usually only available for those folks who pay for DStv Premium, will be available on DStv Compact and Compact Plus until 30 April 2020.
Moreover, SuperSport 7, normally only available for Premium, Compact and Compact Plus subscribers, will be available on DStv Family and DStv Access. Which is all great news, especially considering that nearly all sport has been cancelled because of the coronavirus so there’s not even anything to watch! Hooray for even more repeats!
“We will continue to monitor the situation and make the necessary changes to our broadcast schedule as developments occur,” said SuperSort in a statement published on their website. So buckle up for a weekend of ESPN sports documentaries about boxers (probably) and some highlights and/or repeats of old sports games. Sounds like a lot of fun for us tech nerds.
