We have spent much of this week creating our wishlists for Black Friday which – in case you didn’t know – is happening this Friday.

We’ve compiled a list of the retailers that will be having a sale of some kind but like many the exact items which will be on sale is a bit of a secret.

Multichoice however is giving buyers a bit of forewarning about a special it will be running on Friday.

The DStv Explora will be on sale for R899 (discounted from R1 499) while a DStv installation, Explora and DStv WiFi Connector will cost R1 499. These deals do not include the monthly DStv subscription.

The DStv WiFi Connector will also be on sale for R99.

DStv Premium customers can connect the Explora to the internet an get access to DStv Catch Up Plus or take advantage of the free access to Showmax that comes with the subscription.

The Black Friday Explora deal will be available at Game, Takealot, HiFi-Corp, Pick n’ Pay Hypermarket and DStv service centres.

The deal is limited to while stocks last and if past Black Fridays are anything to go by they won’t last long.
