DSTV have announced that they are expanding their High Definition offering.
This is an introduction to the changes in the DSTV High Definition offering.

To understand this we have summarised it as follows:

Each DSTV package has access to different channels. To date, each package contains channels which are available in Standard Definition, as well as High Definition. If you are using a High Definition decoder connected to a High Definition television you will have access to the High Definition channels which are offered on your package.


The amount of High Definition channels that each package will have access to are as follows:

  • Premium: 20 High Definition Channels
  • Extra: 6 High Definition Channels
  • Compact: 4 High Definition Channels
  • Family: 1 High Definition Channel
  • Select: 1 High Definition Chanel

DSTV Access and DSTV Easy View have no HD channels offered in their bouquet so at this point in time will not offer access to any High Definition Channels.

It is important to note that High Definition video is broadcast in 2 formats: 1080i and 720p. If you would like more information about the video formats we are happy to discuss this with you.
