SuperSport, the South African group of television channels owned by MultiChoice, is linking up with GINX eSports TV the international multi-language TV channel dedicated to video games. The launch is planned for the month of April.
This will provide the broadcasting of international tournaments. The deal will also provide coverage for local gaming events like the rAge Expo and many more. GINX channel has been suggested by SuperSport to develop to attract gamers who are not possibly DStv subscribers.
According to Gideon Khobane, the CEO of SuperSport, the channel is making its first step in the new ecosystem and unveiled that GINX will be integrated into the existing online services of DStv. The broadcasts will be streamed live over DStv Now and all the highlights will be accessible on DStv Catch Up service.
