SuperSport secures 2014 FIFA World Cup rights
SuperSport has announced that it has secured the rights to screen all the matches of the forthcoming FIFA World Cup to be held in Brazil, from 12 June to July 13, 2014.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles and four other African countries; Ghana, Cameroon, Algeria and Côte d’Ivoire will represent the continent at the global soccer show.
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 pictures and sound quality available, adding that 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.
“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,” he said.
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.
Also speaking, 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 to ensure that 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”.
