Extra View is a highly cost effective and flexible way of getting more DStv channels into your home, An Extra View set up allows you to set up two Extra View capable DStv decoders at a cost of a single subscription- Extra View, plus an access fee of R55 per month. (subject to change)

This allows you to view two channels at once in two different locations within your Home yet paying for one account. We offers you a number of Extra View packages to choose from: Check out our fantastic packages below.

How does Extra View work?

Basically, two decoders* are linked to work under a single subscription. Each decoder is independently connected to the satellite dish and each decoder has a smartcard. In the Extra View installation, one decoder is designated as the “primary” decoder and the other one is designated as the “secondary”. The decoders are linked by a cable that allows communication between them and the primary decoder sends a “heartbeat” to the secondary decoder via this cable. If the cable is removed or the “heartbeat” lost, the secondary decoder will lose video & audio until the cable is replaced or the “heartbeat” resumed. There is no impact to the primary decoder if the cable is disconnected.
