The 2020 Tokyo Paralympics begins now, Tuesday 24 August with SuperSport that will broadcast above 380 hours of the Paralympics on SuperSport Wide variety 2 (DStv 207) and SuperSport Variety 3 (DStv 208).

SuperSport’s Paralympics coverage will element 22 sporting activities that will get day by day protection from mornings to late evening activities.


There will be a daily highlights package deal, broadcast each night, with
information and updates also that includes on SuperSport Blitz (DStv 200).

In addition, the SuperSport Grandstand (DStv 201) channel will curate the finest material at
any one time, when directing viewers to activities that could be broadcasting
in other places at the same time.

SuperSport claims that Paralympics protection will also be extensively out there on the DStv Now app,
even though Showmax Professional will stream all are living events each in South Africa and across
the continent.

Archive content material, journal displays, highlights and supplementary programming will
also be offered on Showmax and Showmax Professional.

SuperSport suggests that contrary to the Olympics, in which each individual event is produced for worldwide
television networks, not just about every event at the Paralympics is generated and
offered for broadcast.

However, SuperSport and Showmax will employ a “finest endeavours” tactic to
deliver as much of the action as doable to viewers back house with a slant
in direction of functions with an African flavour.

Historically, key Paralympic sports like athletics, swimming, basketball,
tennis and weightlifting get the bulk of protection, but SuperSport and
Showmax will try to be even far more inclusive.

The SuperSport Range 2 and SuperSport Assortment 3 channels will be available to DStv Top quality, DStv Compact Furthermore and DStv Compact subscribers, although the
highlights deal on DStv Wide variety 4 will also be prolonged to DStv Entry subscribers.
