Why watch Netflix on the Explora?
That’s all you have to do to start enjoying your favorite Netflix shows through the Explora. We noted here that you need to have a valid Netflix subscription. We also noted that you can watch Netflix shows in a variety of ways. So, why would you need the DSTV Explora way?
The main reason for doing this is for convenience. Signing into Netflix on your Explora Ultra puts your entertainment in one place. Instead of having a wide range of remotes, you can get everything using the Explora decoder.
We currently do not have the Explora Ultra, but we have a smart TV, which is how we access YouTube and Netflix. It means we have to keep two remotes at hand, one for the Explora 3B and another for our TCL TV. It’s not too much of an inconvenience, but it can be annoying if you cant find one of the decoders.
The Explora Ultra solves this by putting all your entertainment in one place.
