If you are a DStv subscriber, you can easily access SuperSport as a channel with your subscription. That will give you the latest news about sports, fixtures, TV schedules, results, and video highlights.

SuperSport also has a web and mobile platform to watch video highlights of major sporting events. Because of its web presence, you can access the site or the mobile app from any location.

But can you livestream SuperSport without DStv?

The SuperSport app is free on Google Play and App Store. You can download it from any location and watch or get short-form content, including highlights, scores, match reviews, previews, fixtures, news, and results.

You can use the app with or without creating an account. However, SuperSport recommends creating an account to get the best experience.

Creating an account lets you personalize the content you want to access on the SuperSport app. For example, signing in allows you to follow your favourite team and tournament and get notifications on your device.

You can create an account using your email address or social media, including Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Apple. Noteworthy, it is free to create an account and use the app.

After creating an account, you can watch SuperSport without DStv. But you have to be in Sub-Saharan Africa to use the app.

Broadcasting rights and the location of satellites prevent SuperSport from showing you videos outside Sub-Saharan Africa.

Can you live stream SuperSport without DStv?

You cannot livestream SuperSport without DStv. Although the SuperSport app has a link to stream live, tapping on it will redirect you to DStv.

In that case, you will first have to download the DStv app for Android or iOS. After that, you must purchase a DStv subscription to livestream major sporting events.

In addition, DStv has a separate SuperSport channel that will allow you to enjoy SuperSport 3 live streaming.

Alternatively, you can livestream SuperSport without DStv by purchasing a Showmax subscription. Showmax is a service from Multichoice, the DStv parent company.


Although initially created for streaming movies and TV shows, you can purchase the Showmax Pro subscription package. The package bundles entertainment and sport and provides an array of live sports from SuperSport.

Therefore, if you do not have DStv, buy Showmax to live stream the English Premier League, La Liga, UEFA, Serie A, and other football tournaments.

But you must understand that the sports streaming option is available under the Showmax Pro package, which is available in Sub-Saharan Africa only.

Showmax gives you a 14-day free trial. However, you must sign up with your credit or debit card to watch for free.

Can you watch SuperSport on YouTube?

SuperSport has a dedicated channel on YouTube. The channel gives you highlights, analyses, previews, and reviews of major sports worldwide.

However, the SuperSport channel on YouTube also brings you live games. For example, you can stream the Ethiopian Premier League, netball, and cricket.

Although you can watch SuperSport on YouTube, the content may not be available in your location.

For example, you cannot watch the highlights of the UEFA Champions League on the SuperSport YouTube channel if you are outside Sub-Saharan Africa.
