SuperSport has announced exciting plans to make the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) available to as many viewers as it possibly can.

“The World of Champions will ensure as much support as possible for our beloved Proteas by making all 2019 CWC Proteas matches available on all DStv packages in South Africa, including the most affordable ‘EasyView’ package - which retails at R29 per month,” SuperSport Chief Executive, Gideon Khobane, said. “These matches will be carried on a dedicated CWC SuperSport channel: SuperSport 13, which is accessible to more than seven million subscribers in South Africa.”
