GOtv to broadcast Rio Olympics Games


GOtv will from August 5, 2016 broadcast the Olympic Games which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on three SuperSport Channels.

A statement from MultiChoice Ghana stated that the Olympic Games will be available on three pop-up channels. The channels are SuperSport 5 on channel 37, SuperSport 7 on channel 38 and SuperSport 12 on channel 39 for the duration of the sporting event.

MultiChoice said subscribers will experience the momentous event from every angle, as SuperSport will be there to capture all the action of the Games.

“With 306 medal sets available, SuperSport will broadcast live every gold-medal event, ensuring unprecedented coverage of the sport spectacle. There will be more than 2,500 hours of the Olympics broadcast over 15 days,” the statement said.

It added that coverage will include Olympics news, boxing, basketball, football, gymnastics and weightlifting. SuperSport 12 will be a dedicated 24-hour Olympic news channel, which will be produced by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

In addition, MultiChoice said the Blitz channel will broadcast regular updates and direct viewers to the big events of the day. SuperSport 5 will be dedicated to hockey, handball, volleyball (beach and indoors), gymnastics and trampoline games, while SuperSport 7 will air boxing, weightlifting and judo events.

Multiple live feeds will be made available to SuperSport, which will then “cherry pick” the best content, much of it with a pan-African leaning, for the Olympic channels.
