The Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) 2015 kicked off in Equatorial Guinea on Saturday, with the host nation drawing 1–1 against Congo in the opening match.
Even though the weekend is over and you can’t always be in front of your television (or if you don’t have broadcast TV), you can still follow Afcon 2015 online.
Here are some of the sites and services that can help you track Bafana’s exploits during the tournament:
- Orange’s StarAfrica Football portal: Featuring live coverage of Afcon 2015 games, match summaries, and video highlights.
- LiveSoccer TV: TV schedules and streaming information, and live match coverage of football matches from all over the world. Available online, or as iOS and Android apps.
- Twitter: @AFCON_Football, @AFCON_2015, @BafanaBafana, and @CAF_Online.
- The official Confédération Africaine de Football website, for when you want it straight from the horse’s mouth.
DStv Premium subscribers will also be able to live stream matches from SuperSport to the various platforms MultiChoice supports.
For those who are unable or unwilling to pay the R740 per month for DStv Premium with PVR access but still want to watch the games on the go, the only other option (other than online streaming services of dubious legality) is DStv Mobile.
DStv Mobile offers access to low resolution versions of SuperSport 1, 2, 3, and 4 (and 13 other channels) for R49 per month.
However, it does require that you be within MultiChoice’s DVB-H coverage area and own a device that can receive DVB-H broadcasts, such as the Walka or Drifta.
