DStv

The watching experience is being revolutionized across the world, thanks to the ever-changing technology. The current content consumer is looking for not just convenience and the quality of the content but the affordability of the same too.

Are you on DStv? Which decoder are you using? Have you tried the DStv Explora decoder? Users who have tried out Dstv’s Explora decoder claim that the most important thing by far about it is the new interface, it’s fast and responsive. The user interface features large icons reminiscent of the more modern interfaces of streaming services like Netflix or Hulu.

The new Explora is an update to the original Explora PVR, launched in 2013, and with it, you can watch the action in crystal clear HD. It offers full Personal Video Recorder (PVR) functionality, with Multichoice’s Explora PVR, you are now able to watch one channel, while you record another.

Multichoice said its decoder can pause live TV for up to 2 hours, the DSTV Explora comes with an HD User Interface and is HD capable, you can watch 720x1080i resolution Video content on HD-supported channels.

The new Dstv Explora decoder allows fast forward, rewind, instant replay, and slow motion, users can use the XtraView to connect up to three decoders under one subscription.

There is also something unique about the Explora’s storage, storage space has been increased 4 fold from a paltry 500GB in the outgoing HD PVR to a 2TB drive, DSTV Explora can record up to 220 hours of content. The decoder has an internal storage of 2 Terabytes enough to store about 9 days of recorded TV video footage.

Unlike Dstv’s previous Explora, the new Explora decoder requires you to use just 1 cable into your decoder, 2 cables coming from your dish but they get joined in a box that then sends the signal down in one cable, Dstv Explora’s CPU has been upgraded from a 1.1GHz model to a 3GHz unit in the Explora with a 4 fold increase in RAM to 1GB of DDR3 RAM.

The Explora decoder comes with a remote which has been designed to be less complicated than the previous by removing the alternate functions mode. It features the big blue DStv central button that serves as the ‘home’ button to retrieve all of your content.

According to the users of The Explora, it comes with 3 USB ports which Multichoice has promised will be used for upgrading the technology in the future to allow for things like Wi-Fi access and potentially 3G as well.
