Which DStv Channels will Show the 2022/2023 UEFA Champions League?

UEFA Champions League logo

The UEFA Champions League (UCL) experience will return on the 6th of September, 2022. As the custom is for DStv, all the games will be aired live on selected SuperSport channels. This article contains the TV programming details on all the Champions League matches, including exact times and the DStv channels that will show the matches.

The UEFA Champions League channels on DStv are SuperSport Grandstand (201), SuperSport Premier League (203), Supersport PSL (202), SuperSport Variety 1 (206) & 2 (207), and SuperSport La Liga (204). Other sports channels will only be able to show repeats and highlights.

The packages that will show the Champions League final include DStv PremiumCompact Plus, and Compact. You can also watch it on Family but you will only be getting one match per week.

As usual, most of the matches will be played from around 5:00 PM (WAT/GMT +1) which is also 6:00 PM (CAT/SAST) in the evening. From September 6, DStv will bring you live matches beginning with the match between Dinamo Zagreb and Chelsea.

There are lots of top teams on show which also means we will be having some very exciting clashes right from the start of this competition. If you are using DStv, you are in the right place. All the fixtures and times will be covered on our Facebook page also.

Here are some interesting encounters you should look out for in this season’s UCL:

  • Group A: This promises to be a very exciting group right from match day 1 and the matches you should look out for include Napoli/Liverpool, Ajax/Napoli, and Liverpool Ajax.
  • Group C: The match to look out for in this group is obviously the Barcelona/Bayern match-up as Robert Lewandowski will be playing against his former club, Bayern Munich.
  • Group E: One very interesting fixture in Group E will be the game between Chelsea and Dinamo Zagreb. Zagreb may be underdogs but they’ll surely be a threat to the blues in this group.

Which team do you think will win this one? It’s too bad Arsenal did not make it to the Champions League again this year and we are not sure when they will return. Here is my prediction: Manchester City will bounce back to win the trophy for the first time. You don’t think so? Drop your predictions in the comments session.

  1. I shall be overseas for the UEFA Champions League Final on Saturday 28th May, and will not be able to watch the match live. Do you know if DSTV will repeat the match after it is finished, and (if so)at what time and on what channel it will be shown? Do you know if, having a DSTV Premium contract, I shall be able to pick it up on my laptop or iPhone, whilst overseas (in England)? Thank you. Guy.

    1. Hi, with a Premium contract you’ll surely be able to watch the final and repeats from any part of the world. Simply download the DStv Now app for the Apple app store, and log in with your details to start streaming.

      As for the DStv channels showing the UCL final and repeats, there’s no way of telling for now. There are too many TV programmes DStv needs to schedule before then, as such, they can’t start assigning channels for the final one month before the time.

      But, say, about a week or few days to the final, we’ll know which channels will air the event and the ones that will show the repeat then we’ll update this page with the details. Simply come back here when you need information and we’ll have them ready for you.

      1. Please, my subscription is ending on 23rd of this may, is there a way I can pay half payment just to watch the final match on 28 without paying for the full subscription package for one month.

        If there is no way, except to pay for the full subscription,

        If I decide to subscribe for padi or yanga package instead of my compact plus package, will I still be able to watch the final?

        1. Hi, Ernest. There’s no way you can pay half of the subscription price. DStv has not given us pay as you go till now so don’t expect them to allow you to pay half the money. They have given me a discount. So the first thing you should do is to check MyDStv App first. You may find a discount there. I currently have a 50% discount for the DStv Compact Package. One of the channels on DStv compact will surely air the UCL final so I recommend you go for Compact. For now, it’s hard to tell if you can watch the final on DStv Yanga. We will only know that a couple of days to the event.


    Yanga package doesn’t have more football channels options why?
    Also please how much can you subscribe Yanga package now?

    1. Hi, Steve. It will show most of them. With Compact, you’ll be able to watch all the EPL matches from the top teams in England. Champions League matches from the Group Stage to the Final will also be aired on this package.
