MultiChoice has introduced a new WiFi Connector, allowing consumers to connect their
DStv Explora personal video recorder (PVR) decoders to the internet wirelessly.
The new connector comes four years after MultiChoice first introduced the product,
allowing consumers to connect their PVRs to online Catch Up Plus streaming content
without having to wire the machine up using Ethernet cables.
The new WiFi Connector, which costs R199, is smaller than the previous one and
comes with a USB docking station.
“It’s easier to connect to your router, even if it is in another room, and there’s no
need to run a cable from your router to your Explora,’ said MultiChoice chief
technology officer Gerdus van Eeden.
By connecting the Explora to the Internet, consumers can access Catch Up Plus, which
includes a thousand movie titles in the M-Net Collection, plus the ability to schedule
It also enables access to Showmax, the video-streaming service launched by
MultiChoice parent Naspers.
