DStv’s new Explora Ultra brings the best of two worlds together by introducing 3rd party streaming apps to the popular DStv Explora, adding unprecedented depth to the entertainment, information and sports offering available through DStv. The Explora Ultra offers all the much-loved PVR features from previous models, including the ability to record, rent movies from BoxOffice and Catch Up on favourite series. The addition of 3rd party streaming applications makes the DStv Explora Ultra the ultimate device for customers wanting an easy and simple way to enjoy content across many services, in one centralised experience.

Without a satellite dish and its associated cabling, you can now enjoy all the DStv content you love, as well as hit shows from other streaming services. All you need is a reliable home internet connection, a DStv Streama device and a television set.

The DStv Streama offers all of the best content customers have come to enjoy, including an array of sport, entertainment, news and kids’ content. With the Streama’s selection of applications such as Showmax and YouTube, it presents all your viewing options in one place, so that you can seamlessly switch between applications to view the content of your choice.

DStv customers with decoders have always had access to streaming channels and Catch Up content via the DStv Now app. A new step towards greater flexibility means that customers are now able to access the world of DStv content exclusively via the app This also means that customers wishing to sign up for DStv are able to instantly access the best entertainment, sport and news on DStv by signing up for a DStv package on dstv.co.za, downloading and logging into the DStv app and streaming. The DStv app offers customers all the best content from Africa’s biggest satellite entertainment, news, sport and educational content, on any screen of their choice – via Smart TV, browser, mobile phone or gaming console with a consistent high-speed data connection.
