“However, AFCON 2023 games will be available through our partner broadcast stations on Free to Air (FTA) channels.”

“Multichoice Africa remains committed to ensuring football fans across Africa continue to enjoy unrivalled access to entertainment and football games available on DStv and GOtv platforms including, the Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, Zambian Super League, and many more of football’s most prestigious competitions,” MultiChoice had said in a statement.
