MultiChoice announced that it's launching a new DStv Explora Ultra decoder to market, as well as a DStv Streama decoder enabling video streaming and coming with YouTube and Showmax buttons.

The company launched the two new decoders aimed at keeping DStv subscribers venturing into video streaming within its own MultiChoice ecosystem this afternoon during its 2020 DStv Showcase media presentation for the press.

MultiChoice's new DStv Explora Ultra, which looks like a bigger set-top box (STB) with curved edges, will carry third-party video streaming services and enable DStv subscribers to watch these services through the connected decoder.

MultiChoice's DStv Streama decoder, with a grill-like, video-console look, has a small remote control with Showmax and YouTube buttons underneath a blue "home" button.
