However, unlike the previous 2010 World cup in South Africa, this one here is on another continent and will be stressing to catch, as most of the games will be showing beyond midnight EAC time, Brazil being in a distant time zone.
The country’s leading digital television company DSTV announced this morning some major price cuts to help Ugandans catch the games safe in the comfort of their homes and make this year’s world cup season a memorable one.
Dubbed “We are Brazil,” the Promo will see DSTV decoder prices trimmed by about 40% to Shs 299,000 down from Shs 356,000 DSTV Marketing Manager, Mr Bryan Muwonge, told reporters at the launch of the promotion, “This is a moment that comes once in 4 years, so we want to make it unforgettable to our people.”
In addition to the regular Super Sport channels showing the world cup live, Muwonge said, DSTV will dedicate two channels to broadcast 24 hours all the developments of the event, including news, player updates, match highlights, expert analyses and replays.
“We are also still weighing options of dedicating some channels on our sister GoTV to show some of the matches, and we will make this public soon,” added.
For the first time, games will be available at all DSTV bouquets, from Premium to the cheapest Access package.
Loaded customers who can afford the new Shs 958,000 DSTVs Explora decoder will be able to record the late night games and catch them the next day.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup is being held on the South American continent for the first time in over 30 years.
A total of 64 matches will be played in 12 cities across Brazil and for the first time at a World Cup final, the goal line technology will be use.
Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Nigeria, Ghana, and Algeria are presenting the African continent.
