Default Super Rugby , SA Rugby not rebroadcast

Good day,

I would like to know why Super rugby, Curry cup rugby and SA Rugby are not broadcast later on other supersport channels anymore.
I would like to downgrade to a lower package than Premium, but then I miss out completely on the rugby.

I used to be able to watch a re-broadcast on other supersport channels at later dates in the past, but now I see it's only broadcast on Supersport 1.

Thank you

My guess is that MC is desperately trying to cling on to it's rapidly declining premium subscriber base.

Rugby Highlights feature on the Access channel (SS10) but only later in the week, from Wednesday. However, only SA teams in VSR are featured.
All Currie Cup and Springbok matches played at home are shown on the same night. Bok games played away are usually aired by Wednesday.

All SuperSport Rugby Challenge games are shown on Access mostly Live but if not then delayed.

Thank you for reply Sandile.

I see you say all Currie cup games shown on same night - is this new development?
In the past it was only shown in the week, like the Boks overseas games.
Please confirm....

Thank you.

Johann

Sandile,

I Beg to differ from you.
Example, the clash between the lions and stormers this weekend is exclusively only shows on supersport 1. There are no other airings of this match on any other channel. The first airing is on wednesday, but again only on ss1. My problem is if you saw from my first post, is that I am thinking of downgrading from premium to compact+.
I'm not bothered with later airings other than the live airing, but it is not shown on any other ss channel again so if I'm on compact+ I will miss out on the game completely. Do you see what my problem is here?

Thank you

Live airings are only on SS1.
Repeats are only on SS10.
Yes Currie Cup matches will be repeated on SS10 on the same day.

Good day,

I don't want to argue with you so please be patient with me. Are only Curry cup matches rebroadcast or Vodacom Super Rugby aswell?
I can only pickup again as an example, the VSR clash between Lions & Stormers on SS1 being broadcast only on thursday on SS10 but only as highlight. I cannot pick up anywhere on the guide that the complete game are rebroadcast on any other SS channel.

Thank you

My mistake, apologies.
It's highlights only that are available on SS10. All full match repeats are on SS1.

Hi Sandile.

To summorise:

SRC live on channel 210.
Currie Cup - full matches repeat same day on channel 210.
Springbok home games - full matches repeat same day on channel 210.

VSR - only 30 min highlights shown later in week on channel 210.

Thank you.

Johann
