Default Ss Challenge Rugby on all packages?

Hopefully this is correct and some good news for lower packages: the June printed guide states that the new Supersport Challenge Rugby series "will be broadcast on all DStv packages, ensuring that rugby's gospel is spread far and wide".

Not all packages have sport channels as far as I am aware though?

Looks like it's been happening for about a month already.

From https://www.supersport.com/rugby/sup...ugby_landscape

SuperSport confirmed that all live matches will be broadcast on SuperSport Select (channel 210), which is available to subscribers of all of the broadcaster’s packages, including Premium, Extra, Compact, Family and Access. Where scheduling allows, these matches will also be available on SuperSport One – to cater for high definition viewing.
All packages would include EasyView.

Very interesting! I'm surprised there was no big announcement as provincial rugby was never before available to non-premium.

Thanks!

It's not exactly top flight rugby...it's barely more than a club competition...Varsity Cup is probably at a higher level.

True, but it is still a lot more rugby than what non-premium subscribers ever got to see before.
