Default NFL Superbowl 2018

Whats happened to the Superbowl??
Is it no longer available from DSTV?
If not - who is showing it in South Africa.
I see it is available in Malawi, Zambia, Ruanda etc - why not in South Africa?

The rights are owned by another broadcaster (same one as NBA). If you put enough pressure on them, they usually would "share" rights with Soweto TV.

American sports have generally not been very popular on Supersport though.

They were pretty popular on ESPN when we still had it At the time of ESPN killing the feed to SA, Supersport told us that they would continue to carry American flagship events such as the Superbowl. In my opinion, even if you aren't are a regular follower of the NFL the Superbowl is a "must watch" event, much like even if you aren't a big tennis or golf fan, the Wimbledon's mens final or the final round of the Masters is equally so.

I was in San Francisco for Superbowl XIX in 1985 and some guy explained the basic rules of the game to me, from that point I was hooked Would be laughable if I had to tune to Soweto TV for my once-a-year fix.

Dont hold your breathe, NFL will never come back to DSTV
We were promised that we would have it on other channels and the same promise was made also to Animal Planet viewers (very laughable).
ESPN is now carried by Kwese in Africa

It was already shown on Soweto TV (and exclusively so) last year if I'm not mistaken - with almost no advertising or notification anywhere - someone just happened to pick it up somewhere a day or two beforehand.

Was it shown on Soweto? I checked the TV Guide but couldn't see it on any channel?
