Connect your Explora Ultra to the Internet for more

You can connect your Explora Ultra to the internet with built-in WiFi or via an ethernet cable (not included). Data charges apply when the DStv Explora Ultra is connected to the internet. Although a capped connection may be used for limited streaming, we recommend an uncapped connection (due to volume of data consumed when streaming), with line speed based on your viewing requirements.

A minimum 2Mbps is recommended for SD downloads; for SD streaming, a minimum of 4Mbps; for HD streaming*, a minimum of 10Mbps (plus connection to an HD capable TV); for 4K streaming*, we recommend checking the requirements of the individual content suppliers (plus connection to a 4K-capable TV).

Important for you to know

Installation of the DStv Explora Ultra decoder works exactly like all our other Explora models, so you’ll need an 80cm dish and a DStv Smart LNB. We recommend using a DStv Accredited Installer (their works carries a 3-month warranty).

A payment of a monthly Access Fee and an active DStv subscription are required to experience the full Ultra experience (including a connection to an additional decoder in XtraView and access to streaming apps).

An additional monthly Access Fee is required if you’d like to add a third decoder in XtraView.

Please remember that data costs apply when connected to the internet and, in some cases, separate subscriptions may be required for streaming apps. The quality of your streaming depends on your internet connection and line speed.

Features vary based on active subscriptions.

The DStv Explora Ultra can deliver standard-definition video via RCA, HD and 4K video via HDMI. However, RF is not supported. You can enjoy crisp and vivid HD, 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos in content where available and if the decoder is connected to the correct equipment.

The DStv Explora Ultra has a 12-month warranty from the date of purchase.

Only available in South Africa.
