DStv Black Friday Deals: DStv Explora, Wifi Connector and more

If you are ever questioned on your shopping spree this Black Friday take deep breaths…The key to your response (after the big spend) is to remain calm and confident - No twitching and certainly no over talking! It’s a diva moment - own it!

 Things to say that put an end to the interrogation:

“It’s not like I spent $100 000 on handbags at Hermes like Kim and Kris or a £1 million spree in Milan like Victoria Beckham – I have done really well!” or simply say, “I really needed that Explora!” – Of course, you did! Let’s look at the value of your purchase – It’s HUGE!

You and your family can experience every picture-perfect moment in crystal clear HD. The DStv Explora’s high-definition viewing will push you to the edge of your seat and make you feel like you’re right in the middle of the action. 

  • Watch the action in crystal clear HD
  • Watch one channel, while you record another
  • Pause live TV for up to two hours
  • Record up to 220 hours of your favourite entertainment
  • Easily record entire series
  • Connect your DStv Explora to the internet and schedule remote recordings when you’re away from home 
  • Fast forward, rewind, instant replay and slow motion
  • Use XtraView to connect up to three decoders under one subscription

DStv Premium customers can connect their DStv Explora to the internet, to get access to the extended world of entertainment on DStv Catch Up Plus which includes box sets of series and the M-Net Movies library of almost 1 000 movies. They also get free access to Showmax, which is then accessible through the internet-connected Explora.

When your Explora is connected to the internet, you can also use the handy Remote Recording feature to set recordings when you are not at home.

The Black Friday deals are available at selected retailers: Game, Takealot, HiFi Corp, Pick n’ Pay Hypermarket and DStv service centres and agencies. These deals are limited to while stocks last and­ subject to change without notice. The deals exclude the monthly DStv subscription.

So you’ve basked in the glory of your shopping spree - now it’s time to get started and get your Explora connected. We’ve put together a few essentials to help you do just that.

You will need:

  • DStv Accredited Installer for all DStv Explora installations. The performance of the DStv Explora is directly related to the quality of the installation (including use of approved equipment and correct alignment of the satellite dish). The recommended satellite installation for the DStv Explora is an 80cm satellite dish together with a DStv Smart LNB. If the Explora is installed with any other type of LNB, the installation may require changes to receive future services. We have prepared an FAQ for more information and your convenience. 
  • Your Installer will ensure that your DStv service is activated before they leave your premises. Compare our packages in order to help you make an informed decision on your desired package.
  • Remember that Showmax is free with DStv Premium – Here’s how to set up.
  • Manage your account, change packages and clear errors with Self Service - it’s quick and easy to use! 

At this stage, all that’s left for us to say is enjoy and welcome to the world of DStv! We’re glad you joined us!
