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 recordings remotely.
It also enables access to Showmax, the video-streaming service launched by MultiChoice parent Naspers.
