Absa Currie Cup live streaming



There have been a number of queries around SuperSport.com's exclusive live streaming of an Absa Currie Cup match each weekend, so we'll do our best to try and clarify exactly what the thinking and drive behind this online feature is.

It is not taking the place of a TV broadcast
  • The live stream is in addition to SuperSport's normal rugby schedule, and has not replaced a slot that was previously on TV. SuperSport has only ever screened three Currie Cup games live on a weekend, so SuperSport.com's live streaming is added value to DStv subscribers
Why is the fourth Currie Cup game not on TV if cameras are there?
  • Unfortunately, we do not have enough Outside Broadcast facilities to the cover all Currie Cup matches on a particular weekend. The matches that are streamed live on SuperSport.com are not of the same quality as those that are broadcast on SuperSport's TV channels.
  • We send a much smaller facility to one of the games each week. This facility has just three cameras, and no ability to show graphics or replays, and we feel that we cannot in good conscience show such a production on one of our channels as it cannot meet the high broadcasting standards that we are so proud of.
Why is my team not being screened on TV this weekend?
  • With only three games live each weekend, it is impossible to please everyone. However, we strive to ensure that over the whole season there is fair representation across the Currie Cup spectrum on your screens.
So how do I watch games online?
  • You need to have a valid smart-card number (from the card in your DStv decoder), and you can click here to complete our simple sign-up process. You need to be a DStv subscriber on the African continent.
  • You will also need a flash player, which you can download from here
  • A 1MB line is suggested for viewing (3G is normally this size). Anything lower than that may result in buffering throughout the game, and a real stop-start experience.
What sort of cost am I looking at?
  • This all depends on your contract with your ISP. Obviously if you have an uncapped line, it will be free. You will use anywhere between 500 and 700MB watching a full game of rugby, so please contact your service provider for more details around the cost.
Who can I contact if I have problems?
