OVERVIEWThe best way to get more out of your DSTV Decoders is by buying DSTV Extras. These products are basically additional features designed to provide decoders additional functionality and control so that you can enjoy their services even more. These Extras can, for example, help you keep track of your favorite shows or control what your kids can watch while you are away. These and many other are services are available when you get DSTV Extras for your home entertainment system.
THE DECODER CARE CONTRACT
The Decoder Care Contract can be considered as a kind of insurance policy for DSTV Decoders, and it can be used to deal with the following problems:
• Electrical Damage to Your Decoder
• Mechanical Damage to Your Decoder
• Damage or Loss of Your Decoder Due to Theft or Burglary
• Damage to Your Decoder Due to Natural Calamities, Like Lightning for Example
In addition to providing protection to your decoder, this DSTV Extra also covers other parts of your DSTV system, including the USB laptop cables and wall chargers for example. This coverage, however, is only meant for one serialized DSTV decoder and its components, which means that you cannot use the same Care Contract to cover multiple Decoders. So if you want to insure all of your decoders then you will need to get a contract for each of them.
