SuperSport launched a segment in 2001 called SuperSport Update, which broadcasts its sports news content in nine minutes. With the positive feedback from local viewers, it upgraded to Africa's first-ever 24-hour sports news channel on October 1, 2006, which Tex Teixeira gave its new name: SuperSport Blitz. The channel updates its sports news content every 26 minutes on weekdays and 56 minutes over weekends; classifying any broadcast content on other SuperSport channels; be it football/soccer, athletics and motorsport.
SuperSport Blitz re-branded its logo in 2012 owing to the switch to HD-suitable feed look. Since 2015, the channel relays Sky Sports News broadcasts from England.
SuperSport Blitz re-branded its logo the second time owing to the historic revamp of SuperSport channels from number-oriented to sport or competition-themed.
