The 2018 Winter Olympics, which will get underway on 9 February, will be broadcast live on DStv’s SuperSport.

SuperSport confirmed that the event will be broadcast across four channels, namely SS11 (channel 211) and SS12 (channel 212), as well as the soon-to-be-launched pop-up channels, SS13 (channel 213) and SS14 (channel 214).

SS11, SS12 and SS13 will be available in high definition (HD), while SS14, designated as the 24-hour Olympics news channel, will be available in standard definition (SD).

SS11 will broadcast build-up content and archive footage from previous games on 5 February.

The channel will also carry the opening ceremony on Friday, 9 February, from 13:00 CAT.

The Olympics news channel, SS14, will go live on Wednesday (07/02) at 05:00 CAT.

The launch of SS12 and SS13 is set for Thursday, 8 February, at 02:00.

All four channels will also be available on digital platforms such as the DStv Now Mobile App, DStv website and the SuperSport website.

Adhoc events not broadcast on the four dedicated channels will be aired across various SuperSport channels as space permits.

Daily highlights of all medal performances and ceremonies, as well as record-breaking performances, will be uploaded on the CatchUp service.
