Besides live matches, full highlights, build-ups, interviews, analysis and magazine shows will also be available on the 5 StarTimes sports channels in the StarTimes “ON Sport” service.

“It is impossible to miss any moment of the World Cup with our App. There is absolutely no need to worry about the weather condition, signal quality, electricity or being in transit.

Wherever you may be, with just a steady internet connection, the StarTimes App will get you fully entertained.” Akofa Djankui, Head of marketing for StarTimes Ghana told reporters.
