    Hilton, South Africa. 4 January 2017

    This was really a simple product to install. It took only about 10 minutes with the instructions and it worked the first time we tested the download. It's an excellent way to supplement DSTV Catchup, and gives access to 100's of additional titles. We can now download at night to use our 'night owl' data cap.

    Paul, South Africa. 27 February 2015

    Great price. Easy to install.

    Daniel, South Africa. 11 May 2015

    David, South Africa. 24 May 2016

    works well , was easy to setup! Only thing that peed me off was 2 days after i bought it , it was R50 cheaper but that's life !!!

    Danny, South Africa. 30 December 2016

    Excellent product, easy to setup and works as expected. Powers via the explora usb port which makes it more convenient to hook up and less clutter.

    Willie, South Africa. 30 December 2016

    Product is good. Price was good.

    Tumi, South Africa. 12 May 2015

    Amazing product. Just what I was looking for.

    Rashaad, South Africa. 26 May 2016

    Nice product

    Mogamat Yusuf, South Africa. 4 January 2017

    At first I suspected the device was faulty as it did not connect as per the dstv tutorials. Both manual and automatic setup. Was later informed to use Chrome and not internet explorer to do the manual setup. Within minutes the device worked. Great wifi connector and it works seamlessly now.

    Gert, South Africa. 7 May 2015

    Easy to set up, works like a dream.
    Decent range
    Top product!

    Layne, South Africa. 28 April 2015

    Opens up a whole new world of entertainment! Easy to install and use!

    Adrian, South Africa. 6 January 2017

    Did not expect this device to be so small but it connects to my WiFi with ease.

    Mike, South Africa. 25 May 2016

    Had a bit of trouble setting up because of the Telkom router wanting a password.

    Ahmed, South Africa. 10 October 2016

    Good ! and easy to setup !

    Keelan, South Africa. 30 December 2016

    Really brilliant, adds a whole new aspect to your Dstv experience and it's super quick and easy to set up

    Mitesh, South Africa. 22 May 2015

    Great product. Easy to install. Speedy delivery.

    Jaco, South Africa. 10 October 2016

    Really easy to install.. Navigation takes a couple of times to get used to. Otherwise, its great

    Louise, South Africa. 22 August 2016

    Very nice just battle to log in

    Roderick, South Africa. 25 July 2016

    Delivery was great product works

    Jaques, South Africa. 4 January 2017

    Works as expected easy to install

    Dennis, South Africa. 9 August 2016

    Works well so far and am enjoying the variety of choice and being able to catch up on favourite series that are not currently available.

    Shericka, South Africa. 25 August 2016

    Works perfectly. Definetaly suggest the manual installation which you get instructions for. Worked first time no problem and now have so many more shows to watch :)

    Clint, South Africa. 28 December 2016

    a whole new world of entertainment! Easy to install and use

    Ursula, South Africa. 20 April 2016

    So easy to set up and now we have so much more viewing on DSTV !!

    Craig, South Africa. 15 February 2016

    It is fairly easy to setup and does the job efficiently thereafter.

    Lance, South Africa. 12 July 2016

    Right price! Easy setup!

    Reshania, South Africa. 2 November 2016

    Not a very high quality product from dstv. But it's the only option to get your explora wifi connected unfortunately.

    Gareth, South Africa. 21 June 2016

    Now that it is connected, it is brilliant, but the reason for a 4-star review is that it was a mission to set it up. The process, although easy to follow, was unsuccessful the first 4 or 5 times.

    Krishna, South Africa. 7 January 2016

    Great add on to my Explora, it's very easy to use and works great :-)

    Ricardo, South Africa. 16 October 2015

    Great product, easy to set up. Works like a charm!

    Mtchera Johannes, South Africa. 28 September 2015

    The item is unable to connect to the internet after setting up according to the instructions given

    Kevin, South Africa. 2 September 2015

    Its so cute and small - power comes in small packages! Easy to install and DStv Catch Up Plus works brilliantly with this little beauty - a must have for all DStv Explora Owners with WiFi in the home! #KevFabFood

    erika, South Africa. 4 December 2016

    Easy to use. Very inexpensive.

    Grant, South Africa. 5 December 2016

    Not so sure if this is such a great investment. You have to download everything and that takes time. Downloads keep pausing for some reason. Need to do my homework on how this is supposed to benefit my life

    Gillian, South Africa. 15 August 2016

    Excellent way to connect remotely to the DSTV recorder and manage your viewing.

    Colin, South Africa. 23 January 2017

    Good product & service

    Emmanuel, South Africa. 12 July 2016

    Very easy to use and saved me the hassle of cabling

    Anita, South Africa. 16 November 2016

    I used to have a 50m cable from one end of the house to the other which I was able to do away with! It works like a charm! I am thrilled with it!

    Moira, South Africa. 20 January 2017

    Works like a bomb. Little difficulty in connecting, but no problems since

    Lebogang, South Africa. 7 September 2016

    The device doesn't connect to LTE wifi routers (apparently, according to the DSTV consultant) so its a little useless to me as a result. DSTV Needs to sort out the firmware such that it is compatible with all routers, although it boggles the mind how its unable to connect to a Huawei B315 which is in every household with a LTE.

    Chantel, South Africa. 16 January 2017

    Loving all the extra viewing that we are getting from this device. Was also very easy to set up.

    Ashton, South Africa. 30 August 2016

    Took a while to setup as I had to change my wifi password. Apparently the firmware doesn't recognize special characters :(
    Once it was changed everything worked perfectly. It would be awesome if Multichoice could provide an update to fix this though...

    ken, South Africa. 7 July 2016

    It works, as is supposed to

    Davin, South Africa. 16 October 2015

    Easy to install. Worked 1st time with no issues.

    Johan, South Africa. 13 January 2016

    Great product. Pretty easy to set up and once it's up the connection to the router is stable. Would really recommend this product as a bundle with the explora decoder.

    Kind regards,

    Petronella Maria, South Africa. 27 October 2016

    Fast delivery! Product works well. Installation had to be done manually, since we have a password on our Wifi.

    Nelri, South Africa. 11 January 2016

    Awesome product. Easy to install.

    Pieter, South Africa. 19 January 2017

    Very good at a good price

    Leigh, South Africa. 5 April 2016

    Quick and easy to install & play

    Andr233, South Africa. 21 October 2016

    The Unit works well once it is connected. Every time the decoder updates during the Night Hours the DSTV Wifi Connector disconnects the signal and the Unit displays an Amber Light and will not reconnect after a complete power disconnect. Then you must reconnect the power a couple of times before the units power light goes to white again and the Wifi Indicator goes to a steady white indication. Then you need to re-plug the Network Cable from the Unit to the Explora. A Bit of Nuisance.

    Franz, South Africa. 11 January 2016

    Nice product, easy to setup with my existing wifi at home

    Leo, South Africa. 11 January 2016

    Excellent product, works as promised as it expands the selection on the DSTV catchup considerably.

    Jameel, South Africa. 5 December 2016

    Endless list of movies, series and sport. U need at least 10mbs or even 20mbs download speed to enjoy immediate access to the list of movies. To download an average size movie of 3gb will take 2 hours on a 2mbs line. U need speed and data!

    Leon, South Africa. 15 January 2016

    Lasted exactly 1 year, disappointing

    Brendon, South Africa. 13 October 2016

    What can I say? It connects to your DSTV, and connects to your wifi. Step by Step instructions are easy to follow, and it connected without a hassle first time.

    I will say, I think its poor that the Explora doesnt have built in wifi (I mean seriously, its 2016), and therefore damn cheeky to charge another 350 just to connect to wifi. Rant over.

    Willem, South Africa. 25 January 2017

    It works like a charm

    Clare, South Africa. 4 May 2016

    Great item, downloads far more than you would normally see on your DSTV demand, more episodes and a few extra series.

    Tracey, South Africa. 10 March 2016

    works like a charm

    Marie, South Africa. 6 December 2016

    Working ferfectly!!

    Ria, South Africa. 23 January 2017

    Werk baie goed

    Raeez, South Africa. 6 January 2016


    David, South Africa. 16 November 2016

    Does what it says is does. Very easy to install.

    George, South Africa. 13 December 2016
