SuperSport Has No Immediate Plan To Offer "Streaming-Only" Service

Just as many major global media platforms are moving towards streaming-only access services, where consumers can access content online on an "over-the-top" (OTT) basis, SuperSport was also asked whether it would be going in that same direction anytime soon.

According to MyBroadband, a South Africa industry tracking news agency, it does indeed appear that SuperSport may not be looking to provide a "standalone online streaming service" yet.

The report from MyBroadband suggested that while SuperSport aims to keep up with innovative technological advances, the lack of access to high-speed broadband across Africa will be the big challenge to a viable OTT service across Africa that will provide the same level of quality that is currently being provided from its DTH and DTT platforms.
