Holiday viewing

Manage your viewing

We’ve listened to our customers and updated our holiday viewing service to make it easier for you. The biggest change is to what used to be the prepaid option – if you want to activate your holiday home and still keep your main home active, you don’t need to pay upfront anymore. Simply activate your holiday home, enjoy your viewing while on holiday, deactivate when you come back and then pay for the days you actually watched with your next DStv payment.



End the battle for the remote

XtraView gives you the ultimate flexibility and allows you to link two or three decoders under the same subscription. This lets you cater for everyone in your family. What’s more – you still only pay one subscription (with an R85 Access Fee for each XtraView decoder).

You can watch sport in the lounge, while the younger kids watch cartoons in the bedroom and the older ones watch movies in the TV room. XtraView is guaranteed to keep the whole family happy.

You can find out which decoders are XtraView capable here and because we recommend you use an accredited installer, you can find your closest one here.

Decoder Insurance

Decoder insurance is a monthly short-term insurance contract that covers the customer's decoder for:

  • Mechanical or electrical fault
  • Loss or damage caused by theft or attempted theft
  • Damage caused by fire, lightning or explosion
  • The USB laptop cable and / or the USB wall charger cable is covered only if the Mobile Decoder is exchanged due to any of the above causes
  • You will need to take out a separate decoder insurance per decoder that you want covered as each decoder insurance covers only the one specific serialised decoder linked to it

MultiChoice (Pty) Ltd is an authorised financial services provider. FSP license number 11514. NMS Insurance Services SA Ltd underwrites the decoder insurance
