The 2022/2023 UEFA Champions League (UCL) experience is set to come to an exhilarating end in Istanbul. As the custom is for DStv, the UCL final 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 LaLiga (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. The final match will be played between Manchester City and Inter Milan at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul at 8:00 PM (WAT/GMT +1) which is also 9:00 PM (CAT/SAST).

Manchester City will face Inter Milan in the finals of the 2022/2023 UEFA Champions League on Saturday, June 10.

Journeying to this height, both teams had put up incredible performances even in games against Europe’s elite teams.

In the semi-finals, Pep Guardiola’s men put up a convincing performance to knock out defending champions, Real Madrid, by 5-1 (aggregate score), while Inzaghi’s men put on an intelligent display to see off city rivals, AC Milan, by 3-0 (aggregate score).

A win for City will be their first ever European trophy and (having won the Premier League and English FA Cup this season) will set them on par with Manchester United as the only English teams to complete a treble in a calendar year.

On the other hand, a win for the Nerazzurri will see them lifting the trophy for the first time since 2010 and set them for their own ‘mini-treble’ having won the Italian Super Cup and Coppa Italia this Calendar year.

Though both teams have never met before in a competitive game, their attacking prowesses and stoic defensive performances in this campaign are assuring of an engrossing and action-packed fixture.

Poland’s Szymon Marciniak will referee the fixture scheduled to be played at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. The game will kick off at 21:00 CAT (15:00 Eastern Time).

    1. According to DStv, the UCL Final will be available on DStv Compact. That being said, there were a few disappointments in the semi-final for subscribers outside South Africa. If you’re not currently living in South Africa, the recommended package for the final is DStv Compact Plus.

    1. The semi-finals of the UCL was available to DStv Compact subscribers in SA only. Subscribers in other countries needed Compact Plus to see the semi-final. AS for the final, it’s too early to tell. But if you’re not in SA, the safe bet for viewing the final live is a Compact Plus subscription.

  1. Collins Nti-Mensah

    Please, will Compact show Champion league semi final match between Real Madrid and Man city on Tuesday?

  2. Mr. Robert, I need your suggestion on which package to get. I love sports (NBA, UCL). I’m torn between two right now. Which one should I go for Compact Plus or Compact?

    1. Hi, Cecil. NBA, Champions League, that’s an interesting combination. Now I will readily recommend you get Compact Plus because, with the wide range of TV Networks, you’re guaranteed broad and comprehensive coverage of the two sports competitions. But if you can’t afford DStv Compact Plus, DStv Compact is also a good choice. Multichoice recently added ESPN 2 to Compact which means you will get more NBA games. But if you an afford Compact Plus, go for it. It’s the best choice for your needs.

      1. Can Compact Plus package allow me to watch all UEFA champions league games to finals plus the English premiership?

  3. Will dstv compact air the Europa league and champions league finals 2023? Or my safe bet should be going for compact plus? Please confirm. Thanks 🙏

    1. Hi, Jollof! Yes, they’ll air both the Europa and Champions League. Which package will air all the matches including the final? I recommend DStv Compact Plus to avoid any surprises.

  4. Will the match between Manchester City and Bayern Munich be broadcasted on the premier league channel or Laliga channel?

    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.

  5. 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. 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.
