SuperSport will dedicate seven of its channels on DStv to 24 hours Rio Olympics coverage with another three on GOTV showing the games, Multichoice Africa has announced.

Kenyan reporter James Wokabi, will be a roving reporter for Supersport in Rio accompanying Carol Tshabalala and Rui de Oliveira who will do the Portuguese coverage.

Because Kenya is six hours ahead of Brazil, DStv will archive a lot of the action in its Catch Up service as well for viewers to recap the action as it happened.

Supersport has the widest global coverage of sports and this time it will be covering the Olympics on more channels than any other outlet except Sky Sports.

BBC  is carrying the games on just three channels while ESPN is doing about 12-15 hours a day as network  NBC carries the bulk of prime time coverage for the US market.

Supersport 4, 5, 6 and 7 as well as Supersport 11, 12, 13 will be dedicated to the Olympics

Overflow content like Sevens rugby, soccer and golf, will be carried on Supersport 1 and 3.

Kenya has sent its Rugby sevens team to the games in addition to the track and field athletes.
