Listen | Head to the Post Office to apply for your free TV decoder, check the requirments

South Africa expects to finish its advanced transmission relocation by 31 March 2022. At the point when this happens all simple TV signs will be turned off and just computerized transmissions will be communicated. Simple TVs need a decoder (or set-top box) to get to the advanced signs. 



SAPO WILL FACILITATE APPLICATIONS 


Qualifying families that apply for a decoder before 1 November ought to get a decoder before the simple sign is turned off. The people who apply after 1 November, in any case, should pause. 


The South African Post Office (SAPO) said: All South African families with a pay of R3500 each month or less and a functioning TV fit the bill for an administration-sponsored set-top box. Qualifying recipients should visit their closest Post Office branch as quickly as time permits with the accompanying documentation: 


A South African character archive. 


Confirmation of address. 


A sworn statement to affirm that the family has a functioning TV. 


A bank articulation or affirmation to affirm that the family pay is R3500 each month or less. On the off chance that you get a SASSA award, you don't have to bring verification of pay. Confirmation that you get a SASSA award is sufficient. 

The Post Office said candidates don't need to visit a police headquarters to do a testimony as SAPO branches have standard oaths that can be utilized to proclaim pay and affirm the responsibility for working TV and a private location. 


DECODER INSTALLATION 


When an application for a decoder has been endorsed, the data is given to Sentech to select a nearby installer. 


The mailing station added that families that have effectively applied for a decoder don't need to reapply despite the fact that the decoders have not been introduced at this point. 


"Establishments are done per area and arrangement of nearby installers is finished by Sentech by means of neighborhood districts. There is no compelling reason to re-register to ensure you get a set-top box," said SAPO. 


To further develop productivity, there will be a different line for decoder applications at Post Offices. "In case you are a SASSA recipient and you have a functioning TV, recollect that you fit the bill for the financed set-top box." 


DECODER: BETTER QUALITY, MORE OPTIONS 


Simple signs are denser than advanced transmission signals. The relocation to computerized broadcasting will unclog the range and furnish South Africans with more admittance to an assortment of content. 


"A digitized sign can take into account up to ten TV channels (standard definition) to be communicated, though a solitary simple channel would require the entire recurrence," said Guy Berger, clarifying the shortcoming of simple telecom in his book Challenges and Perspectives of Digital Migration for African Media. 


Thus, rather than the conventional stations, which we are acquainted with on open telecom: SABC 1, 2, 3, ETV and a local area TV slot, the decoder will empower admittance to something like 22 TV slots and 19 radio broadcasts.
