What is HD?
HD is a digital television broadcasting system with higher resolution than traditional Standard Definition (SD) television systems. Instead of using the conventional 625 lines to plot a TV picture, HD uses 720 or 1080 lines. In addition, the pixels in each of those lines are smaller and closer together, resulting in hugely improved picture quality, clarity and colour definition.
HD also uses more colours than SD, increasing the richness and intensity of everything you watch. Most HD programmes and movies utilise the widescreen 16:9 format and are also created with cinema-style surround sound, that you can experience in full with a compatible surround sound system.
It’s the ultimate way to watch your favourite movies, series and sporting events and it’s going to deliver so much more!
To experience the full magic of HD you require the following:
- HD PVR (connected to the TV via a HDMI cable)
- A Full HD or HD ready TV
- Satellite installation (minimum twin LNB) – Click here for XtraView installation options or check out our Installation FAQs.
- Home Theatre System (optional)
- A DStv Premium subscription (M-Net HD, SuperSport HD and Discovery HD Showcase are only available to DStv Premium subscribers)
Note: A Home Theatre System is optional you can still watch HD content without Surround Sound.
