In theory, DStv installation should be as simple as setting up your decoder and dish and then sitting back to enjoy a huge range of channels. In reality, installation is not always as straight-forward. Many people assume that they do not need help getting their decoder and dish set up. This leads to many issues and a great deal of frustration.
To ensure that you are able to stay watching and enjoy all that your decoder has to offer, here are some of the top DStv installation mistakes to avoid.
Avoid These DStv Installation Mistakes
Make sure that you don’t make any of these mistakes to ensure that your DStv installation goes as smoothly as possible.
1. Trying to do the installation yourself.
This is easily one of the most commonly made mistakes. Assuming that the installation process is easy enough to do yourself can end up costing you a great deal of time and effort. Satellite dishes need to be placed in the best spots to ensure the best reception. Without a solid understanding of satellites and decoders, as well as setting up both of these, installation becomes a lot more complicated than you realise.
2. Choosing price over quality.
Another mistake that is often made is going with the cheapest installer rather than one that has experience and skill. A poor quality, cheap installer can be just as frustrating as trying to set things up yourself, only it will often end up costing you in the long run. Rather than going with the cheapest option you see, take the time to look for a trusted installer that will give you the best service from start to finish.
3. Using a non-accredited installer.
One of the biggest reasons to choose a trusted installer is that they will be accredited by Multichoice. This is the only way to ensure complete peace of mind. A non-accredited installer may not have the expertise as an accredited installer. If anything goes wrong, you will have no guarantee. This is a big risk that can cost you a lot more than you bargain for if anything goes wrong. Rather than take that chance, always look for an installer that has accreditation from Multichoice.
