Hit Springbok rugby documentary Chasing the Sun to stream in the UK, Australia, France and more

 Johannesburg, February 18 – Showmax subscribers in the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Australia, New Zealand and selected markets are now able to stream Chasing the Sun.

The extraordinary documentary traces the South African national rugby team’s road to victory at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

It’s a story for the ages – a team battered and bruised, with very little prospect of victory at an international championship, rises from the ashes to take the coveted crown.

That was the case for the Springboks in 2019 when they reclaimed the Rugby World Cup trophy. Now, Chasing the Sun – both a metaphor for the journey and the name of the five-part documentary series – tells the incredible tale of the Springboks’ unstoppable climb to glory as they lifted the Webb Ellis Cup.

“Chasing the Sun is a uniquely South African story about winning against the odds. It’s also a universal story of resilience, commitment and the power of belief. We know our international audience will love this phenomenal and emotional documentary as much as our viewers back home did,” says Yolisa Phahle, MultiChoice Group CEO of General Entertainment and Connected Video.

Produced by SuperSport, all five episodes are now available to stream for Showmax subscribers across Africa and selected international markets. International subscriptions start at US$3.99 a month.

The full list of countries outside of Africa where Chasing the Sun is now available for streaming includes Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
