MULTICHOICE GIVES HD EXPERIENCE TO ALL DStv CUSTOMERS
 
MultiChoice today announced that it will make HD channels available to all its customers. Effective immediately, customers who have channels in their package that are also available in HD, will see these channels in HD if they have the necessary HD equipment. Previously, only DStv Premium customers had access to HD channels on their package.
 
In future when new channels are added to DStv packages and those channels are available in HD, they will be offered to customers with HD equipment in HD.
 
Currently DStv Premium customers with an HD decoder and an HD capable TV, have access to 20 HD channels. DStv Extra customers will now have access to 6 HD channels, DStv Compact customers 4 HD channels, DStv Family and Select 1 HD channel each. There are currently no HD channels available for customers on DStv Access and EasyView.
 
“High definition has become the standard for premium television around the world – we want to offer our customers the best entertainment possible. HD television significantly enhances the viewing experience – we can’t wait for our customers to start enjoying their DStv entertainment in crystal clear HD quality. This is the way to truly feel every moment!” commented Mark Rayner, COO for MultiChoice South Africa.
 
Customers do not need to do anything to get these HD channels – if they have HD decoders and HD capable televisions, they will see the HD channels that are available on their package in HD within the next week. An easy way to tell whether you are seeing the channel in HD is to look for the words HD next to the channel name on the EPG. More importantly, this won’t cost anything extra – customers will continue to pay the normal subscription fee for their specific DStv package.
 
Please note that only customers with HD decoders and HD capable televisions will see the content in HD – all other customers will see the content in Standard Definition.

I'm shocked! I always thought the only requirement to get the HD channels was the HD PVR. I had no idea it was limited to bouquets - so not cool. A good thing it's changed.
