Better quality TV
Digital TV – enabled by a Set Top Box (STB) - offers a sharper, brighter picture, with reduced “ghosting” and interference. What’s more, the audio signal is much clearer, so you enjoy improved sound quality.
For the first time, you will be able to access many free-to-air TV channels that you can select simply by using the remote and the Electronic Programming Guide (EPG).
TV viewers will incur a once-off cost to buy a Set Top Box. The free-to-air channels such as SABC and E.TV will continue to be available for free - no subscription fee will be charged.
