SS does deal with e.tv for Bok game



SuperSport and e.tv have reached a once-off agreement to broadcast Saturday's rugby match between South Africa and England on the free-to-air broadcaster at 10pm.

Happy Ntshingila, CEO of SuperSport, said he was pleased that attempts to make the match available to free-to-air TV viewers has come to fruition, despite the short notice.

Monde Twala, Group Head of e.tv Channels Division, said: “e.tv is excited to have the Springboks on our channel. Although this is a once off deal, we will always welcome the opportunity to ensure that the majority of South Africans are able to view their national heroes. We would have liked to have the opportunity to broadcast the test matches a bit earlier, but given our schedule and time constraints, this was impossible.”

The match will be broadcast live on SuperSport 1 and HD1 from 5pm, on SS4 at 7pm and on e.tv from 10pm.
