SuperSport treats viewers

2017-03-01 10:20

All 135 regular season games plus seven fixtures in the match finals series of this year’s Vodacom Super Rugby will be broadcast live and in high definition on SuperSport.

A number of Thursday and Sunday fixtures will also feature.

SuperSport will use up to 16 cameras for home matches and will offer three commentary languages (English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa) for games that involve South African sides.

A new magazine show debuted last Wednesday (22/02) and is designed to be high-energy with interactive elements.

Xola Ntshinga and Elma Smit will be the regular hosts, with the show going out every Wednesday at 20:00.

The early-morning build-up shows have made way, with studio discussions for afternoon and evening matches. Television’s influence will also come to bear on field decisions with new television match official (TMO) protocols.

This means should the referee or one of his officials wish to initiate a review of a decision (via TMO replay), the referee will first state to the TMO his “on-field decision” based on his real-time view. The TMO will then review the given incident accordingly.
