Football lovers have taken to Twitter to express their disappointments on why the only sports channel on DSTV, Supersport won't be showing the F.A. Community Shield match between Manchester City and Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
Supersport, earlier on Sunday said in a tweet that they won't be broadcasting the match due to 'unsuccessful broadcast rights.'
Hi. SuperSport will unfortunately not be broadcasting the Community Shield, as our bid for broadcast rights was unsuccessful.— SuperSport 🏉🏆 (@SuperSportTV) August 5, 2018
However, with the latest DSTV Price hike on all packages, most of their customers are not buying their excuse. See reactions below.
So after paying 14800 soon to be 15800, I can't watch community shield?. What kind of wickedness is this?— Offiong Onoyom (@offiong187) August 5, 2018
Large slice of yr budget was spent on in studio analysts for the World Cup eg Andy et al. Get rid of this unnecessary expense and focus on what your subscribers want. At the same time the analysts in the rugby is also an overkill. 6 in studio guests for the super final is a joke— Bobby Donnelly (@BobbyDonnelly) August 5, 2018
But eti ya werey sha 😡— ADEY 👑 (@OgaAde_) August 5, 2018

Then why don’t you drop our fees. Fok! we are paying over 900 bucks for this crap. I will keep on praying that someone like Netflix gets sporting rights,— Fresh Prince Of Welfare (@Swirlkous_Killa) August 5, 2018
But we are still paying expensive amount for sub every month, you people are mad oh incase you don't know— A.Oluwakayode (@SEEZY_OFFICIAL) August 5, 2018
So I will pay 18k and still be checking flashscore. It's just one match. Are you people well?— Oyindamola Stephens (@itsdeenice) August 5, 2018

No Community Shield No FA Cup No Carabao Cup And DSTV Recently Increased Their Subscription Fee Across Board So What's Their Usefulness Now?— Aroyewun Abimbola T. (@HonAbimbola) August 5, 2018
