For the duration of both tournaments, Euro 2016 will be available on SS11 (channel 231) and SS 12 (channel 232), while the Olympics will have seven dedicated channels to broadcast all the actions live.
The SuperSport studios will also provide highlights and analyses of the tournaments by experts such as J. J. Okocha, Victor Ikpeba and Benny McCarthy, among several others.
In addition, DStv is offering the HD Zapper decoder at N9,900 to subscribers as well as prospective customers.
This offer is effective May 27, 2016.

In furtherance to this tradition, we will be bringing the Euro and Rio 2016 tournaments live to the living rooms of subscribers, entertaining them with the blow-by-blow actions of all the matches.”
The highpoint of the event was the announcement of the price reduction of the full unit of the HD Zapper decoder, which comes with a one month free subscription, at N9,900. “This is the lowest we have given our subscribers in the last 15 years,” said Martin Mabutho, General Manager, Marketing, Multichoice Nigeria.
“The offer will take effect from Friday May 27 and will last for the duration of the Euro 2016 tournament, after which it will revert to its original price,” Mabutho added.
For the Rio 2016 Olympics, Mabutho said seven SuperSport channels have been dedicated to broadcast all the sporting actions and other interesting content.
