The time it takes to have DSTV set up and running varies as there are different situations with different factors that need to be considered.
For a person staying in a complex or a building which already has DSTV points set up it will you less than 5 minutes as all you have to do is connect the decoder to a power source and link your decoder with a cable to a pre installed DSTV port.
For users who are looking to get the full DSTV installation set up including the satellite dish, it also varies. If the installation is to a single point, the DSTV installation will take up to an hour. When it comes to DSTV installation with ExtraView (Linking Up To 3 Single View HD or Xplora Decoders to one subscription) it takes about 2 hours to complete.
DSTV Installation for hotels depends on the complexity of the structure and the number of rooms which want to be linked. As more hotels are opting for DSTV Over Fibre it makes the process of connecting the decoders faster and smarter.
