What is DStv-i?
The panel of
households is
balanced
according to
Bouquets
A specially modified
DStv subscriber
decoder and
modem is installed
Households are
recruited and key
demographics are
collected
in the household
which allows for
data collection
STB viewing data is
collected via a local
cellular
network
provider and
households data is
sent to Multichoice
daily
STB viewing data
(based on button pressing
on the remote control) is
stored on the Set Top Box
(STB Decoder)
Why Return Path Data (RPD)
Return Path Data (RPD) measurement has been recognized globally as a
cost effective solution to measuring digital viewership
Simplified
direct system
No active
participation
or
management
No need for
paper
diaries

How can DStv-i be used?
Platform
Advertisers,
Agencies
Channel
Suppliers,
Schedulers,
Content
Producers
Some Challenges – any others?
Power
outages are a
key challenge
Heavy
traffic,
affecting the
rate of
installations
Identifying the
network
providers in each
market who are
able to deliver on
the panel polling
requirements
Monthly cash
payments by
subscribers
Household structures and
details are not always fully
captured in the subscriber
database.
Different swap-out and
activation procedures in
each country
Understanding the nuances that exist
in each market particularly when
formulating the recruitment
questionnaires – it is evident that not
‘one size fits all (CATI, CAPI, paper)
