SABC2 completely silent about it, but has a daily 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games highlights package from 23:00.

SABC2 is silent and isn't commenting on actually having daily highlights of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.

(One would think SABC2 or its external PR company would make a fuzz about it on the channel and on the SABC's behalf to lure viewers to lift viewership and to get value for the money the SABC had to pay for the rights.)

Pay-TV viewers are watching the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games on SuperSport channels on MultiChoice's DStv, but free-to-air South African viewers can now watch daily highlights of the Games on SABC2.

It comes after the SABC signed a broadcasting rights agreement for the 2014 Winter Olympics (of which there was also no announcement from the SABC).

Viewers can tune in to SABC2 daily at around 23:00 (or 22:30 on two nights of the week) for special daily highlight packages of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
