Those looking for a more sophisticated offering would be better off investing in a DStv decoder with PVR (personal video recording) functionality such as the HD or Explora decoders.

DSTV Explorer Decoder 3A

DSTV Explora decoder offers full PVR functionality, with the ability to record 220 hours of content for later viewing. The decoder has internal storage of 2 Terabytes enough to store about 9 days of recorded TV video footage.
