Multichoice Upgrades Eight DStv Channels to HD Viewing


Multichoice has upgraded a total of eight DStv channels from across the continent to from Standard viewning (SD) to High Definition screening.

Over the past few years, DStv has introduced new ways of viewing content from platforms such as Showmax, a streaming service that offers the best in African storytelling and the DStv App, which allows consumers to watch their favourite shows while on the go through their mobile devices.

The upgrade of the eight channels ensures that customers continue to view content in the highest possible quality to improve their overall viewing experience.

The channels that are now available in HD include;

● Pearl Magic Prime

● Africa Magic Urban  

● Africa Magic Epic

● Akwaaba Magic

● Abol TV

● Honey TV

● Maisha Magic Bongo


“We are very proud to be making this announcement as this has been one of our goals for the year. HD will truly improve the viewing experience and sound across all the channels through increasing the resolution, therefore making sure the images are clearer and have more detail,” said Hassan Saleh, Multichoice Uganda MD.

He: “We have also ensured that we include channels from across the board in this move to serve our different audiences. Our news-loving audiences will now be able to watch CNN in HD; while our Ethiopian audiences will experience Abol TV in HD and the same goes for our audiences in Ghana and East Africa where Akwaaba Magic, Pearl Magic and Maisha Magic Bongo will now be beaming into people’s homes in HD.”
