MultiChoice Group has officially launched its next-generation decoder in South Africa. The new Explora Ultra will be available at participating retail stores from next week.

The decoder according to MultiChoice offers customers an enhanced viewing experience and the best available local and international content from DStv – Africa’s Most Loved Storyteller – and Showmax.

The first generation Explora launched seven years ago with updated versions of the device released over the years culminating in the Explora 3B decoder. The Explora Ultra builds on its predecessor with new features. It is capable of delivering 4K content and Dolby Atmos audio, and is also integrated with Netflix and its DSTV's own streaming platform Showmax.

It features built-in Wi-Fi capabilities and also comes with a completely redesigned interface, which MultiChoice says simplifies discovering and navigating DStv’s dynamic content on TV and on-demand. 

“The DStv Explora Ultra has a range of amazing features developed to cater for how our customers watch content today. It delivers seamless enjoyment of broadcast, recording, streaming, downloaded and CatchUp content in one easy-to-use environment. The Explora Ultra makes it easier than ever before to find, explore and enjoy new content from across DStv channels and third-party streaming apps,” said MultiChoice Group CEO Calvo Mawela. 

DStv customers will have the option to pay for their Netflix subscription in their monthly bill. The inclusion in the bill will be available to DStv customers who want to become Netflix subscribers.
