According to their website, kwese.com , it's only free to register and you pay as you watch...

Other than online, they're on satellite but they don't say which one (that I could find) and it would need its own decoder if the signals are here.

It seems you register and then some channels are free to watch? Trying it out now- waiting for my confirmation SMS.

Great, thanks for clearing that up.

As a fellow programmer, you should know how important accuracy and detail are

The registration confirmation SMS is not coming through. No immediate crisis but this just makes me wonder, how much could they have paid for it to be able to show it for FREE? Is there truly NO WAY WHATSOEVER that SuperSport could have made a plan to get/show this?

Kwese has partenered with Disney to bring ESPN back to Africa. If you go to espn.com you are actually redirected to kwese.espn.com

I saw them advertising ESPN yes. That's even more disappointing considering existing relations between MC and Disney.

Whatever you mean, MC do have the Disney kids channel(s) so I would think it's a somewhat open book anyway... but perhaps not open to anyone other than Kwese due to exclusivity with them in this instance?

Gripe as i may, i really do love DStv and i most likely wont be jumping ship but to be treated with a little respect once in a while is all we ask for... We are not asking for the whole regular season but the Superbowl is the Superbowl!!!

As you all know we did broadcast the Superbowl a few seasons back. But, the ARs were so low SuperSport couldn't justify the spend.
