MultiChoice has unveiled yet another innovation milestone in Ghana with the launch of its first HD single view decoder. The DStv HD Decoder delivers great HD signals and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound accessible to DStv subscribers.

The DStv HD decoder, will replace the existing standard definition single view decoder.

“The launch bears testament to our continued investment in technology to ensure DStv delivers the best television experience in Africa. The DStv HD decoder will ensure that more subscribers will have access to DStv’s HD channel offering. High definition creates a far superior television viewing experience in terms of picture quality and the Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound adds a new dimension to the audio experience. The DStv HD Decoder will open up a new world for many DStv subscribers”, says Nico Meyer, CEO of MultiChoice Africa.

The DStv HD Decoder’s user interface is similar to the DStv Explora. Most functions can be performed from DStv Central, accessed through the blue DStv button on the remote control. This user interface makes for easier navigation through the HD menus and helps customers discover great DStv content available via multiple search options directly from the remote control.

The decoder is XtraView capable and can be paired with selected XtraView compatible decoders (excluding the SD PVR), allowing a cost effective and flexible option to allow more than one independent viewing environment.

The DStv HD Decoder, will be available from all MultiChoice offices, dealers and agents throughout Ghana  and will cost GHC395, reduced from GHC448, for a fully installed set with dish and GHC270 for a decoder box only.
