A few notable sporting events and matches are being broadcast on these channels this weekend.

For golf fans, teams from Europe and the US will be battling it out for the Ryder Cup.

A similar tournament will be on offer in the world of tennis, with the Laver Cup in which Europe takes on the Rest of the World.

Motorsport enthusiasts can watch the Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix, including the practice and qualifying sessions and the race.

There is also plenty of football to watch, including three EPL matches featuring Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur.

Locally, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns will clash on Saturday at 14:55.

The 47th Berlin Marathon is also set to take place on Sunday from 09:00.

Notably, the list does not include DStv’s Grandstand or Rugby channels.

DStv subscribers will, therefore, still require a Premium subscription to watch the Springboks and All Blacks clash for the first time in this year’s Rugby Championship.

Additionally, non-Premium subscribers will not have access to the live  Edmonton Sevens tournament, where the Blitzboks will hope to replicate last week’s win in Vancouver.
