SuperSport goes simulcast

Posted by radio On July - 30 - 2014

SuperSport will become simulcast from Tuesday, 12 August 2014. This means that Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) channels will display on the same channel number.

SuperSport-logo-1-e1348796998243[1]Channel 201 will henceforth display SuperSport1 if you have a Standard Definition (SD) decoder and SuperSport1HD if you have an HD decoder. This means that the SuperSport HD channels from 211-217 will fall away as they move onto the same channel number as their SD counterpart.


This is great news for SuperSport fans, as they won’t have to spend time flicking between SD and HD channels.


SuperSport channels have been playing in dualcast since the beginning of 2014, in preparation for this change – the content on the SD and HD channels has been exactly the same.


Customers with PVR decoders need not worry as their scheduled recordings will not be compromised by the switch over to simulcast – these recordings will automatically be moved to the new channels. We do recommend that customers double check their list of scheduled recordings just to be safe.
