MultiChoice has launched its latest decoder, called the DStv Explora Ultra. This is more of an upgrade to the Explora 3 introduced last year. What makes the new decoder special, is that, it comes with a built-in access to Netflix.
The new Explora Ultra decoder which will be available at selected retail stores from next week, comes with some amazing features. Aside having access to Netflix, the decoder comes with a built-in Wi-Fi, and supports 4K UHD and Dolby Atmos.
According to MultiChoice CEO;
The DStv Explora Ultra has a range of amazing features developed to cater to how our customers watch content today. It delivers seamless enjoyment of broadcast, recorded, 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 the new content from across DStv channels and third-party streaming apps.
Key Features of DStv Explora Ultra
- Built-in Wi-Fi capabilities
- 4K UHD and Dolby Atmos support
- Redesigned interface for easier access to on-demand content
- New DStv remote
- Showmax and Netflix integration, with more streaming services to follow
It could be recalled that back in June, MultiChoice signed a deal with Netflix and Amazon prime that will allow them offer streaming services through its new decoder to customers. The new decoder comes with a built in Netflix app, that will allow DStv customers the option to sign up for or sign in to their Netflix account.
The partnership also grants DStv customers with an Explora Ultra the possibility of adding their Netflix subscription to their monthly DStv bill. Meaning customers will have the option to pay for their Netflix subscription in their monthly bill. The inclusion in the bill will also be available to DStv customers who want to become new Netflix subscribers.
MultiChoice said the addition of the Netflix app to the Explora Ultra connected to the Internet opens the door to Netflix’s critically acclaimed local and international entertainment across a wide variety of genres.
