"Sport is one of the most talked about subjects in South Africa and giving our audiences a new experience on the platform is perfectly timed. We have had requests for a sports channel since the launch of OpenView and Kwesé Free Sports is the perfect choice for quality sport from around the world that our viewers will love." says OpenView’s Head of Channel Acquisitions, Ziyanda Mngomezulu. 

With the launch of Kwesé Free Sports on OpenView, South African sports lovers looking for a diverse mix of exciting sporting action will be in for a real treat.

Tennis lovers will be enthralled by the kick serves, aces and breaks in the WTA Miami Masters, while Baseball fans can watch Toronto Blue Jays second baseman and shortstop Gift Ngoepe make his mark in the South African history books in Major League Baseball.

Motoring heads can get their fix of fast paced racing action in the Formula E, while basketball fans enjoy every explosive dunk, high flying hoop and sneaky steals the NBA season has to offer. There is something for every sports fanatic on Kwesé Free Sports and OpenView audiences will be spoilt for choice.
