Springbok Tests on e.tv?
Cape Town - The Springboks’ home Test matches could be broadcast on e.tv after the SABC said it would no longer be televising them 'delayed live'.
Until 2010, the SABC had an arrangement to broadcast Springbok home Tests on a delayed basis and since then, SuperSport and the SABC have worked on an ad-hoc basis. Up until last weekend's first Test between the Springboks and England in Durban
, the SABC had shown games on a delayed basis.
However, the Springboks' home Tests could still be broadcast 'delayed live' on free-to-air television, according to SuperSport Communications Manager Clinton van der Berg.
"SuperSport have engaged with e.tv and have offered them the rights to broadcast the Bok Tests on a delayed basis. We are awaiting their response. SuperSport is happy to offer the rights to any free-to-air broadcaster," Van den Berg confirmed to Sport24 on Thursday.
