Earlier last Wednesday, it announced it wouldn’t be broadcasting on its platform because it failed to secure the broadcasting rights of the continent’s biggest football event on its SuperSport channels.

It said, “SuperSport Channel will not broadcast the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2023 scheduled for January 13th–February 11th, 2024, because the channel has not secured the rights to broadcast the tournament.

“However, AFCON 2023 games will be available through our partner broadcast stations on Free to Air (FTA) channels.
