It replaces the previous model HD Decoder 5 currently in stores and has the same features and functionality our customers are used to. The new model hit the markets on 2 May 2019, retailing at R399 as a standalone product, and R599 with installation.
The new model has the same user-friendly functionalities as the HD Decoder 5-series. While DStv’s new decoder retained most of the features of its predecessor, there are a few differences.
Importantly, the slimmer and more compact model is made up of recyclable components. MultiChoice considers recycling as a pinnacle part of their business operations, and are constantly looking at improving how they make their devices more environmentally friendly.
This decoder has a micro-sim and is also XtraView compatible with all DStv Explora models in the market.
Through understanding customer preferences and ongoing commitment to innovation and technology advancement, MultiChoice delivers unrivalled access to content across multiple platforms and aims to continuously update its current technology.
All MultiChoice decoders are manufactured locally and through high-level manufacturing and assembly chains, we’ve stimulated the decoder manufacturing industry. This also benefits related businesses such as part suppliers, carton printers, distribution and logistics providers.
Customers who have an HD Decoder 4 or 5 will not need to replace or upgrade their existing decoder. The DStv HD Decoder 6-series will be available from various retailers, DStv Service Centres and agencies from 2 May 2019.
