Will I need to buy a new decoder?
No – the good news is that communal distribution is fully compatible with your DStv Explora, HD decoder and PVR Decoder. If you don’t already have a DStv Explora, now that you have fibre you might want to upgrade your decoder to take advantage of all the awesome content that’s available when you connect your DStv Explora to the internet. You’ll also be able to add XtraView and BoxOffice, just as you can now.
How much of my fibre data will this use?
None at all! Communal distribution data doesn’t eat into your fibre data, although you will use data if you connect your DStv Explora to the internet.
Do I still need to pay my DStv subscription?
Yes, your DStv subscription is separate from this product and remains a contractual relationship between you and MultiChoice. The price of your DStv subscription won’t increase, unless you upgrade to an even better DStv package.
So now I’ll get internet for free when I pay my DStv subscription?
Unfortunately not – you’ll still need a subscription with Infraplex for broadband internet services.
