DStv Mobile recently launched their new Drifta USB mobile TV decoder, complementing its current range of mobile TV phones and its standard Drifta modem.

Like its predecessor the new DStv Drifta USB mobile TV decoder receives a DVB-H signal from MultiChoice’s mobile TV network and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7.

“It’s just a matter of loading the Drifta USB application onto your PC,” explains Mark Rayner, general manager: DStv Mobile South Africa.

“After that, you simply plug the Drifta USB into your PC and launch the application; within seconds you can then enjoy DStv Mobile content.”

“The Drifta USB has been launched to address the needs of customers who primarily want to use their PCs and laptops for viewing. Based on the positive response we received from the Drifta, we wanted to come up with something more affordable and exclusive to devices with USB ports.”

The Drifta USB retails at R399.00 and is available at MultiChoice branches and select retailers.

MultiChoice also announced the addition of M-Net Series to the DStv Mobile bouquet. The channel boasts content such as CSI Miami and The Good Wife.

“Consumer feedback has shown us that M-Net Series is a highly desired channel for mobile consumption and we’re glad that we were able to secure it for our mobile viewers,” comments Aletta Alberts, general manager: DStv Content.

DStv Mobile has a standard subscription price of R36 per month, but is free to DStv Premium subscribers until 31 March 2012.
