The service will be made possible by third-party production companies including NBA Africa. Much of the video on demand content will be available as highlights from events like the ABSA Premier League, UEFA Champions League, and UFC.

So when can you watch it? Well, as much as everyone states it has been “launched”, it actually has not. YouTube does plan on rolling out the content in the coming months to the platform with the video on demand content being the first to go live.

YouTube has not stated whether or not you will need a subscription to view this content either or if it will be available to everyone as a free service with ad support. We will update you as we learn more and YouTube sport becomes more readily available.
