More HD channels for DStv

DStv will soon get two new high definition (HD) SuperSport channels, MultiChoice announced in a press statement today (16 July 2013).

MultiChoice said that SuperSport 5HD and 6HD will go live from Tuesday, 23 July 2013, for DStv Premium subscribers.

With an increasing number of sporting events now available in HD, the addition of new channels will enable SuperSport to increase its capacity of live HD broadcasts, MultiChoice said.

“With an impressive line-up of leagues including the PSL, SuperSport will be showcasing the best international leagues on this growing and highly demanded HD platform,” said SuperSport CEO Happy Ntshingila.

SuperSport 5HD, channel 215, will focus on motorsports, boxing, swimming and athletics and will also act as an overflow channel.

SuperSport 6HD, channel 216, will cater for international football leagues such as the German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga and the Italian Serie A. According to MultiChoice, the channel will complement existing football channels which are SS3HD and SS4HD which showcase the Barclays Premier League and action from the PSL respectively.

Also going live on 23 July 2013 is SuperSport 8, channel 208, which will cater for locally produced and sourced content such as the varsity athletics series and school sports, MultiChoice said.
