The European club competitions have ended and everyone’s attention is now on Euro 2020. Top countries like Spain, France, Portugal, England and more will play and DStv will be bringing you all the live matches starting from the 11th of June to the 11th of July, 2021.
So if you are not sure which package to subscribe to for the Euros, don’t worry. This article will give you all the information you need with regards to watching the UEFA Euro 2020 on DStv. Let’s get into it.
Euro 2020 on DStv
DStv will be broadcasting all the Euro 2020 matches to all customers who have an active subscription on DStv Compact and above while subscribers on lesser packages will mostly be getting match replays and highlights.
Which DStv channels are showing Euro 2020?
DStv has already made it known on their official Facebook page that they will be dedicating two channels to the competition. The DStv channels that will be showing live matches of the UEFA Euro 2020 are SS PSL and SuperSport Premier League. The packages you need to watch the Euro 2020 tournament on DStv are Compact, Compact Plus, and Premium.
What happens when two Matches start at the same time?
You’ll want to know this especially if you are running a viewing centre as a business. UEFA has creature a fixture list that ensures that matches do not clash. The only time two matches will go live at the same time will be on matchday 3, which is necessary so that the result of the first match on that day does not influence the outcome of the second.
As an individual, you shouldn’t be worried about this but if you run a business, you may need an extra view for Matchday 3. Streaming cost may be too high so streaming on a smart TV should only be a fallback option. The easiest solution to this would be to link a secondary decoder to the primary decoder using the DStv Xtraview.
Where to Watch
You can watch Euro 2020 on DStv channel 203 (SuperSport Premier League) and channel 202 (SS PSL). If you do not have a decoder, the next best thing would be to use the DStv Now app and stream the matches live on a smartphone, tablet or smart TV.
You don’t have to own a decoder to watch DStv these days. You can now join DStv and subscribe to any of its packages using the DStv Now app. Check with your local DStv service agent or contact DStv customer care for more information on how to do that in your country.
