The biggest digital satellite TV service in Sub-Saharan Africa, Dstv, has announced that it will be extending its coverage of the Spanish football league popularly known as the La Liga to its Dstv Family Bouquet, in a move that’s sure to excite local Spanish football fans.
In a press release, the chief executive officer of MultiChoice Zimbabwe, Lovemore Mangwende, said the extension of La Liga coverage to DStv Family would start on Friday August 18 and continue through the coming European football season.
The extension will add more value to the Family Bouquet as up until now matches in La Liga had been broadcast to DStv Premium, Compact Plus and Compact bouquets.
“DStv’s SuperSport channels bring the world’s best sport, including soccer, into homes across Africa, and we feel sure DStv Family subscribers will be delighted to say ‘hola’ to the Spanish La Liga,” added Mangwende.
“From this Friday 18 August, they will get all the thrills of the football action from the likes of Messi, Ronaldo, and other greats who play for Spain’s La Liga clubs. This exciting news follows a series of customer-focused events and initiatives over the past year, ranging from new content to lower prices for subscriptions.”
The move looks to further boost Dstv Family and Access customers’ satisfaction as they are already enjoying a rollout of exciting new channels this month, aimed at opening up their world of entertainment even further and providing even more quality content.
DStv Family will now include not only the new La Liga coverage but also BBC Lifestyle (channel 174), CBeebies(channel 306), Food Network(channel 175) and SuperSport 7 Africa (channel 227). DStv Access customers will now enjoy more entertainment with the Africa Magic Epic channel 152.
“In the past year MultiChoice has frozen and reduced subscription prices, added more content and brought the English Premier League to DStv Compact packages. And now we are further enhancing the value by strengthening the DStv Family and Access packages,” concluded Mangwende.
