This might sound stupid, I live in the US and I used to have a Direct TV satellite service. Two months ago I stopped my service because I am moving to South Africa.

Can I use any Direct TV receiver (equipment) in South Africa by buying a card and signing up with a satellite tv provide over there (Multichoice Africa)? Or is this equipment basically useless over there?

Thanks

Apart from the mains voltage being different - 110V (US) and 230V (SA) - DirecTV is AFAIK encrypted in Nagravision and Multichoice is Irdeto2.
So, yes, your existing equipment will be useless
