    1. What can be there problem with my explorer 1 is just booting without displaying anything

  2. Morning,
    I am in need of DStv Explora 2A as seen on this page.

    1. Hi there Michael, you can contact MultiChoice directly via the communication channels listed here.

  3. How much is the dish only

    1. Hi Emmanuel, thanks for reaching out. It depends where you get it from, but satellite dishes range from K150 going upwards. I hope this helps.

      1. But where can get a dish at 150

        1. Where do you reside?

  4. What type of a power pack it can last for 2hrs.if possible send an image.

    1. Could you kindly clarify your question. I would like to know if it’s directly connected to DStv or general power needs. I will however answer generally.

      A power pack or backup power system like a common UPS can last you for up to 6 hours after a power interruption.

      Similarly, a power pack or power bank for a smartphone can last quite a number of hours. The measurement is in the number of times you use it to charge your device. How long it lasts you depends on the capacity it – has measured in mAhs – the higher the mAhs the longer it lasts you.

      I hope this helps you in a way.

    1. Hey Marina, thanks for reaching out. I’m sorry about your damaged Explora. Yes, those from Pick n Pay are DStv decoders from MultiChoice too. The price is lower there maybe, because the decoders don’t come with a full kit and a one month premium bouquet subscription like the the ones at MultiChoice. It could also be that the stock was acquired at a lower price before price hikes. My advice to you is that you buy it now before prices are adjusted upwards. I hope that I’ve been of help.
