YouTube added to DStv Explora Ultra box

Tuesday 4 May 2021 | 08:57 CET | News
YouTube has been added to DStv Explora Ultra set-top box, so subscribers can watch over a billion hours of video from the online platform. Also new on the Explora Ultra is the Discovery And Launch protocol (DIAL), which enables viewers to play YouTube videos from a second screen device (for example, a mobile phone) directly onto the TV without pairing between devices. According to DStv, this makes it easier to watch shared or archived content from a secondary device of choice.
