SuperSport, broadcaster of premium sports programmes on DStv has announced that they have secured the rights to screen all the matches of the forthcoming FIFA World

Cup tournament to be held in Brazil, from 12 June 2014. Nigeria’s Super Eagles and four other African countries; Ghana, Cameroon, Algeria and Côte d’Ivoire will lead the continent with hopes of lifting the prestigious trophy.

Speaking at the press conference to launch the campaign titled “We are Brazil”, General Manager, SuperSport, Felix Awogu said DStv and GOtv subscribers will get to watch all the matches with the best picture and sound quality available. There is also the added perk of watching live matches on the SuperSport HD channels on DStv. In addition to the world class broadcast quality that is our trademark and which our subscribers will enjoy, they will also have access to insightful football analysis and thrilling magazine programmes which will showcase the stories outside the field of play” he said. “We have four special shows specifically produced to further showcase the World Cup, Brazil and the fans. Most importantly, we will also give expert insight and analysis from our unmatched line up of presenters and studio guests.

As is the norm, MultiChoice Nigeria announced that they will with effect from today, slash their decoder prices from N27,000 to N15,500 to enable Super Eagles fans and football lovers in general to watch the World Cup. The offer comes with two months subscription on the Access bouquet and excludes dish installation.

Furthermore, General Manager, Marketing, MultiChoice Nigeria, Mr. Martin Mabutho pointed out that due to the late broadcast of some of the games, the DStv mobile devices and the Explora decoder will come in handy, in ensuring viewers see all the action and do not miss out during the World Cup. “Walka 7 allows you to watch in traffic, and in the office, while the Explora with its two terabytes memory, gives viewers the opportunity to record all the games, right onto the decoder, and keep them for good.

He adds that “DStv subscribers can maximise their experience of football during the World Cup with the Catch Up feature on the Explora decoder, by accessing the stacked content and watching previously aired soccer matches”.
