Eighteen countries across the continent, including South Africa, will compete at the 21st Commonwealth Games in Australia starting on 4 April.With 275 medals up for grabs across 18 sport codes there will be endless action, the bulk of it to be broadcast live on SuperSport.The World of Champions has secured exclusive pay television rights across Sub-Saharan Africa, ensuring viewers can watch the like of Olympic champion Caster Semenya, Luvo Manyonga and the Blitzbokke Sevens team.Botswana’s Nijel Amos will be favoured in the 800 m, especially as world record holder David Rudisha will be absent. It could be a big haul for Botswana, especially as Babaloki Thebe and Isaac Makwala will battle it out for 400 m gold.Nigeria’s big star will be Blessing Okagbare, looking to defend her sprint double from Glasgow, while Kenya’s main hopes will be invested in Helen Obiri (5 000 m) and Conseslus Kipruto (3 000 m steeplechase).SuperSport will receive seven broadcast feeds, the most relevant of which will be broadcast on four dedicated DStv channels (which will also be available on the go via DStv Now).These will be SS11, SS12, SS13 and SS14, available on the Compact package and above. Two-hour daily highlights will be broadcast on SS10, available on the Access package.The intention is to broadcast every medal event live. In addition to live action broadcasts, there will be two daily highlight packages: one for day time (10:00), one for evening sessions (18:00) and repeated in prime time (20:00).As Queensland is eight hours ahead of South Africa, events typically run from 01:00 to 05:00 (South African Standard Time). The opening ceremony will be on Wednesday (04/04) at 11:55.
