Here’s something interesting from the folks at MultiChoice – using a fibre internet connection to get signal to a DStv decoder.

The firm announced today that customers in a complex, estate or apartment block will be able to use a fibre connection to send signal to their Explora or single view HD decoder.

“The system uses a single, shared satellite dish and then distributes the signal into individual homes using the fibre optic network. This distribution does not impact on the data¬†download speeds of the fibre network,” MultiChoice explained.

The solution also means that customers’ decoders will no be connected to the internet so you can make use of DStv Catch Up Plus as well as Showmax.

Body corporates and property developers will need to contact an accredited DStv installer to bring this solution to their properties.
