SuperSport in Africa lands major WWE TV rights deal

WWE and SuperSport, Africa’s premier sports broadcaster, today announced a new, multi-year agreement to broadcast WWE programming live for the first time in more than 50 countries throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Starting Monday, August 28, SuperSport will air Raw and SmackDown as well as WWE specials, including WrestleMania and SummerSlam.

“WWE is a global phenomenon, so securing the broadcast rights for SuperSport is a terrific coup,” said Gideon Khobane, chief executive of SuperSport. “The athletes involved are larger than life figures who command huge followings. At long last our viewers will get to share in this entertainment spectacle in high definition. I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with WWE.”

Ed Wells, WWE Executive Vice President, International, said, “SuperSport is a best-in-class partner who shares our vision and passion for engaging with and entertaining our fans. Televising WWE programming live in sub-Saharan Africa for the first time is an important milestone for us, and we look forward to working with SuperSport to cultivate new fans in the region.”

SuperSport channels S3, S4, S9 and SS10 will televise Raw on Tuesdays and SmackDown on Wednesdays, offering both live telecasts and same-day re-airs, and will broadcast all WWE specials live, including WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble. All programs will be available with English commentary and on demand. WWE programming will also be made available across some of DStv’s general entertainment channels.
