It’s the biggest soccer tournament of the year and SuperSport will deliver it all with live coverage, previews, reviews, analysis, magazine shows, highlights and features from the heart of France.
Apart from High-Definition match broadcasts, which will include one-hour build-ups with augmented reality, SuperSport will have three news crews in France to ensure that every angle is covered. Match commentary will be available in Portuguese.
Coverage starts with renowned French DJ David Guetta hosting a pre-tournament concert in Paris – live on SS3 from 8.50pm on Thursday – and concludes with the final on July 10.
SuperSport’s Euro package will be supplemented by four Euro-themed programmes: Insight with John Dykes, Master Plan; A la Carte and French Connection.
The John Dykes Show will be broadcast weekly from France (Sundays 10-10.30am) where the popular analyst will secure top talent for interviews.
French Connection (Saturdays, 10-10.30am) will be hosted by Julia Stuart and will take in the sights and sounds in and around the tournament.
A la Carte (Saturdays and Sundays, 9-10am) will be a hip and happening lifestyle programme fronted by an array of local pop culture figures. They’ll be giving their unique spin to the goals, action and results from the European soccer showpiece.
Master Plan (Sundays, 1-2pm) is unashamedly aimed at the purists with top coaches and former players deconstructing the action from an analytical point of view.
Every possible viewing platform will be accommodated, including live streaming ( and the SuperSport and DStv Now apps), social and the Catch-Up service.
