DSTV: Slow rollout of HD content – HDPVR

Isn’t it ironic, that I posted the article DSTV – High-definition – WTF? almost 12 months ago?

If you go back to the original article you will still cringe. There is still only one channel, the HDPVR costs now R 1000,00 more (retailing at R 3,499.00) and still offers an inferior viewing experience (due to the many bugs).

There is still no proper solution for the now discontinued SDPVR which at least had dual-view capabilities. XtraView is cumbersome and you will land up recabling most of your house to get it going. There is also uncertainty about new players entering the South African market and with Seacom’s “broadband revolution” other means of high-def experiences such as Netflix might be a more feasible option.
