Today Multichoice launched its first DStv single view HD Decoder. Going for just R499, it replaces the standard single view with HD viewing and better sound quality.

SingleViewHD_LGThe new HD Decoder uses an interface similar to that of the DStv Explora decoder with multiple search options available directly on the remote control and most functions available on DStv Central.

You can also change the HD Decoder to XtraView –  the ability to watch different DStv programmes in two different rooms all at the same time – by pairing it with selected XtraView compatible decoders (excluding the DStv SD PVR).

“This decoder now makes those HD channels more accessible. High definition creates a far superior television viewing experience in terms of picture quality and the Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound adds a new dimension to the audio experience. The DStv HD Decoder will open up a new world for many DStv customers,” Mark Rayner, COO for MultiChoice South Africa, said in a statement.

You can buy the new HD decoder directly from MultiChoice or from any leading retail stores. The R499 price point is for the purchase of the decoder alone – the decoder plus installation will set you back R799.
