AFCON 2019: DStv, GOtv to Broadcast Matches Live With Pidgin Commentary

With the start of the Total 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) only a few days away, assurances have come from DStv and GOtv that subscribers would enjoy the live coverage and analysis in pidgin language.

The Media Coordinator of the companies, Atinuke Akinola, gave the assurance on Tuesday in Lagos.

He said the organisations noted that the football show would also come up in HD on SuperSport.

Akinola said that all the matches of the tournament would be available to DStv subscribers on Premium, Compact Plus, Compact and Family packages, while selected matches would be available to DStv Access subscribers.

On GOtv, the matches would be available to subscribers on GOtv Max and GOtv Plus packages.

He quoted Martin Mabutho, Chief Customer Officer, MultiChoice Nigeria, as saying: “We know pidgin is one of the most popular languages for interaction in the country and we received good reviews when we introduced pidgin commentary during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

“Now, we are excited to announce that we will bring it back as part of the commentary for the 2019 African Cup of Nations as we believe it will help Nigerians have more connection to the competition’s broadcast.”

Similarly, the AFCON broadcast will also feature magazine programmes, providing analyses on how select teams qualified for the tournament, information on culture and lifestyle of the participating countries and iconic places of interest in the host country.

DStv subscribers can catch all the games on SuperSport 7 with selected matches on SuperSport 10 and SuperSport 8, while GOtv subscribers can watch the action on SuperSport Select 4 with selected games scheduled on SuperSport Select 2 and SuperSport Select 5.
