Multi-choice Liberia consolidated Group or Dstv, last weekend, launched its newest product on the Liberian market – “the Explora Decorder”, at the Royal Grand Hotel in Monrovia, officially through the Liberia Telecommunications Authority or LTA.
The Chairman of the LTA Board of commissioners, Angerline Weeks, expressed gratitude to the DStv family for the new technology. Prince D. Chesson of the United Bank for Africa- Liberia Limited or UBA, who became one of the lucky winners of the DStv explora decorder, thanked the DStv family for the new technology, saying he was proud to be one of DStv subscribers.
Another winner from the explora raffle – the Station Manager of the United Methodist Radio, Edward L. Massaquoi, indicated that that he was of the strongest conviction of becoming a winner while he attended the program.
Consolidate Group’s Operations Manager Ibrahim Kone said the explora decorder pauses a live TV for up to two hours, forwards and backwards a movie, while a movie can be watched repeatedly up to 7 days. “It has 90 to 94 recording capacity unlike the PVR that has 20-24 recording capacity, but can’t be transferred to a disc because of copyright,” he noted.
Meanwhile, the explora decorder has been dropped by US$50, and was now USD$249 from the original price of USD$299 for the first 50 customers as the price increases after the sales of the first 50 persons. Mr. Kone noted that heavy storm stops the DStv from functioning, stressing that the advantage the explora decorder has is that the movie starts from where it stopped and it can also backward to watch the previous stories.
He said it has the capacity to show previous movies for about 2 hours, adding that when there is no rain in Liberia and the DStv starts to go off and on, it means there is a heavy storm from the DStv source in South Africa that affects all subscribers around the world.
Consolidated Group in Liberia thanked the Lonestar Cell family for partnering with them in making Mobile money available to pay DStv bill.
