Nairobi - Multichoice Kenya has unveiled the DStv Explora PVR decoder giving subscribers more content recording time, a wider range of programmes and many channel control searches.
Speaking during the launch, Stephen Isaboke, the Multichoice East Africa Regional Director, said that the unveiling of the DStv Explora decoder is a milestone heralding an exciting new era for digital television which allows viewers to gain more control and personalise their DStv viewing experience.
“It is another innovation which bears testament to our continued investment in technology to ensure DStv delivers the best television experience in Africa. The Explora forms part of the continent’s fast technology developments and ensures that our subscribers get the best viewer experience,” said Isaboke.
“The absence of high speed broadband access for most of Africa means delivering content via our satellites remains the most reliable way to ensure our subscribers get the best television, without buffering or waiting for downloads from the internet,” he added.
Isaboke said Explora, which has the ability to meet most unique viewer needs in the fast-growing world, provides subscribers with Catch Up services rich in high-definition video-on-demand experience.
He said users can pause live TV broadcasts for up to two hours, retain buffering when changing channels, save up to 220 hours of personal recorded content, view one programme while recording the other such as series, movies and sports.
“The Explora additionally has powerful search features that help subscribers find programmes quicker and easier, searching across the eight-day TV Guide, Catch Up, and their own recordings (playlist). It has expanded the number of series available and now introduces series stacking, thus viewers will always be able to catch-up with all the hot new TV series,” noted Isaboke.
Isaboke added that Explora’s remote control further enhances the experience with dedicated shortcut buttons to DStv Central, Catch Up, Playlist, Search, Live TV and other viewing options.
Multichoice is Africa’s leading pay television operator in over 50 countries that incorporates DStv to provide the best local and international channels, including first-run films, documentaries, children programming, news and sports.
