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 R90 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

Get covered

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

  • Mechanical or electrical malfunction  
  • Loss due to theft, fire, lightning, flood or explosion

You will need to take out a separate insurance policy for each decoder you wish to insure. One decoder insurance policy insures one specified serialised decoder.
