Kwesé Free Sports will showcase exclusive LIVE free-to-air coverage of some of the best in global sports, including the Premier League, the NBA, the NFL, Brazil Serie A, Copa del Rey, motorsports, international boxing and much, much more. KFS is the only place where viewers can watch their favourite sports stars at no cost thanks to Kwesé making premium sports accessible to more African fans than ever before. Kwesé Free Sports has the most diverse offering on free-to-air TV, with something for every sports fan! Upcoming highlights include the 2017 Formula One season, which kicks off with the Australian Grand Prix on 23 March. KFS viewers can follow the season from start to finish as Lewis Hamilton fights to claim back his top spot. Boxing fans can look forward to exclusive coverage of the super heavyweight title showdown between the man who is being touted as the next heavyweight champion of the world, Anthony Joshua, and his rival, Wladimir Klitschko, which will be broadcast live only on KFS on 29 April. “KFS continues to grow from strength to strength. We’re now available in 24 countries and are excited to welcome Botswana to the Kwesé Free Sports family,” says Joseph Hundah, President and Group CEO of Econet Media. “This is the eighth market which has a 24-hour dedicated Kwesé Free Sports channel, which has been broadcasting the best in sports 24/7 live and for free since August 2016. We will continue to add new markets to the list as we expand our KFS footprint across Africa.” The channel is available on digital terrestrial television (DTT) in Gaborone, with plans to extend KFS’ reach to the rest of the country in the coming weeks.
