Showmax Pro subscribers across Africa are in for a treat as they will now be able to live stream all matches of the Euro 2020 on the streaming service.
Football fans across the continent will be able to stream every match of the UEFA Euro 2020, which runs from 11 June to 11 July 2021.
Launched last year, Showmax Pro bundles the existing Showmax entertainment offering with music channels, news, and live sports streaming from SuperSport.
Euro traditionally produces outstanding soccer, with many of the world’s leading players given a grand stage. There will be spectator limits in place, and matches will be held in 11 cities across 11 countries – a “romantic gesture”, according to UEFA, to celebrate the 60th birthday of the tournament. Viewers are promised a one-of-a-kind spectacle, with the stark differences between the host cities contributing to the uniqueness of the event.
Portugal will be defending the championship, although France, Belgium, and England are all rated higher, and will be playing with high expectations from fans.
“We know that Africa is football mad, and we’re thrilled that more people will be able to stream the matches on the go or at home.” MultiChoice CEO for General Entertainment and Connected Video, Yolisa Phahle said while speaking on the addition.
“Being able to offer this high-class tournament to sports fans on the Showmax streaming platform is an exciting addition to the many SuperSport platforms that offer viewers top-tier sport.” SuperSport chief executive Marc Jury noted.
Other live sport available on Showmax Pro includes all Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, and PSL games as well as a wide range of live sports events including athletics, professional boxing, and the world’s biggest marathons.
Sports documentaries available on Showmax include HBO’s gripping golfing documentary Tiger; What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali; Klopp: The Inside Story; and SuperSport’s ground-breaking Chasing the Sun, the series about the Springboks’ inspiring victory at the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Showmax Pro also includes a selection of live news channels, such as Euro News, Africa News, and Newzroom Afrika.
