Features to look out for on the new DStv HD Decorder

Written by

Multichoice has rolled out its first HD single view decorder meant to replace the existing standard definition single view decorder. The DStv HD Decoder delivers great HD signals and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound accessible to DStv subscribers.

The DStv HD Decoder’s user interface is similar to the DStv Explora. Most functions can be performed from DStv Central, accessed through the blue DStv button on the remote control. This user interface makes for easier navigation through the HD menus and helps customers discover great DStv content available via multiple search options directly from the remote control.
