MultiChoice cuts Explora decoder price in Ghana

Technology & Convergence

Multichoice Ghana said the price of the Explora decoder has been reduced from GHC 1,182 to GHC 850. New subscribers without the accessories will also get a fully installed Explora decoder for GHC 1,199 instead of GHC 1,530. Thanks to a financing partnership with UT Bank, customers and qualified individuals may buy decoders on instalments over six months. Customers need to meet the bank's credit terms and provide an ID with passport pictures. Credit applications will be processed within 48 hours.

The new DStv Explora decoder is a PVR which gives viewers more control to personalise their viewing. Subscribers can save up to 220 hours of content, view one programme while recording  another, pause live TV for up to two hours, retain buffering when changing channels, conduct word searches and personalise themes.

The DStv Explora offers other features such as film rental service DStv BoxOffice, DStv CatchUp and the DStvNow app, which lets subscribers watch content on their laptop when their power is off.
