Cape Town – MultiChoice is upgrading high definition (HD) versions of the standard definition channels SuperSport 5 and SuperSport 6, and is adding SuperSport 8 as a new TV channel next week.

SuperSport 5 and SuperSport 6 will both be added as HD channels from Tuesday, 23 July when the satellite pay-TV operator will also grow the SuperSport channel offering by launching a new SuperSport 8 TV channel in South Africa in standard definition.

SuperSport 5 HD or SS5HD (DStv 215) will focus on motorsports, boxing, swimming and athletics and will act as an overflow channel.

SuperSport 6 HD or SS6HD (DStv 216) will carry international soccer leagues such as the German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga and the Italian Serie A.

EPL & PSL

SuperSport says the channel will also complement the existing soccer channels SuperSport 3 HD (SS3HD - DStv 213) , and SuperSport 4 HD (SS4HD - 214) which carries the English Premier League and the South African Premier Soccer League.

SuperSport 8 (DStv 208) will carry overflow live events from SuperSport 1 and SuperSport 2 and will broadcast content such as university athletics series and school sports.

The new channel will be exclusive to DStv Premium subscribers.

"The addition of new HD channels speak to our commitment to provide our viewers with the best available content," says Happy Ntshingila, SuperSport CEO in a statement.

"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."

The HD versions of these channels are only available to Premium DStv subscribers with PVR decoders. Premium subscribers with SD decoders will still have access to the channels.
