How many channel groups can you have?
That’s how to create channel groups on a DSTV Explora. It’s a good way of having favorites grouped together so you can easily navigate through them without the clutter.
One thing about DSTV is that it has a lot of channels, but you can only watch one at a time. You probably won’t even be bothered with most of them.
But how many channel groups can you have? At the moment, DSTV allows you to have 5 channel groups. They are in addition to the default All Channels and My DSTV Channels groups.
My DSTV Channels is composed only of those channels that you have paid for. We have previously written on how you can get DSTV to only display those channels. When you press on your remote, you don’t want to see all channels, unless you have paid for the full DSTV package.
Why add DSTV channels to your favorites list?
The example given above was made using the Explora 3b. It’s the second latest Explora after the Explora Ultra. Having said that, these steps should be similar for all Explora decoders. They should also work for DSTV HD.
But why would you bother adding channels to a favorites list on DSTV? It’s something to which we have already alluded. DSTV has a lot of channels, over 154 of them. It makes it difficult for anyone to navigate through these channels.
That’s particularly the case if you have signed up for the full bouquet. You will have all the channels that are offered by DSTV. It can be overwhelming to try and sift through all of them.
It’s way better to group your channels according to your favorites. As an example, you can have one group that is composed of Sports channels. You will then name that group Sports.
You can have another group that’s composed of movie channels. You will call this group of favorites Movies. It’s also possible to group HD channels together.
If you have been watching HD channels, particularly on a big screen, it will become somewhat painful to watch SD channels. The picture quality will be severely degraded. So, if you wish to only watch HD channels, you can group them together for easy navigation.
