The flagship decoder is the fourth generation of HD PVR devices that ARRIS and MultiChoice have launched together and makes it easier for customers to access MultiChoice's growing on demand services. In the future, its HEVC technology will reduce the bandwidth needed to stream or download shows, helping to lower the data charges that customers incur when streaming or downloading content from one of the DStv services.
The device features a streamlined hard drive and ships with a new remote control that features motion-sensor back-lit buttons and a dedicated ShowMax button.
"We invest in technology that enables us to offer our customers the leap in entertainment at the best value," said
"ARRIS and MultiChoice have a long-term partnership, and we've built on this by designing another set-top for MultiChoice that uniquely addresses the needs of their customers," said
