Earlier in the month I told you RIGHT HERE that SuperSport is planning on having a second high definition (HD) TV channel on DStv during the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup, and the sports broadcaster has now confirmed the news to me. Get ready for SuperSport HD 2!
''Yes, SuperSport will have a spillover channel,'' SuperSport tells me. ''It will be another channel entirely. This will accommodate all the simultaneous World Cup matches, plus any other high definition (HD) sport broadcasts.''
SuperSport is already running the high definition channel SuperSport HD (DStv 171) since December for DStv Premium subscribers. SuperSport HD 2 is what the additional SuperSport HD channel will be called and DStv Premium subscribers will be able to find SuperSport HD 2 on channel 174 on DStv during the World Cup.
