CAPE TOWN - MultiChoice says a glitch in the system, causing its DStv signal to be cut, has been sorted out.

It says the South African pay-TV giant added a new transponder to its DStv platform on Monday morning to accommodate future service.

MultiChoice's Head of Communications Marietjie Groeneweld says they apologise for any inconvenience caused.

"Unfortunately the process did not happen as seamlessly as we wanted it to happen which meant that some of the decoders did not acquire the new transponder. What customers could have seen is just an error message. We have since addressed this issue and we trust that our customers will now be able to continue enjoying their viewing."
