  13. Hi Vic,
    Happy new year. I’ve got this issue with my GoTV. I just came back from my hometown to find that my 2months subscription had expired. I paid the mandatory N1,800 monthly subscription (on 9th Jan 2016) at the nearest dealer & even though my account is active online (& the inactive red light on decoder is absent), signal does not get to my decoder. Even the GoTV help channel (1st channel) does not show. I know it can’t be from antenna but with no choice left, i had to explore the option of turning the antenna and like i thought, it was in vain.
    What do I do?

  14.

  17. Your payment methods are very limited and not up to date.
    I will like to make payment by EFT. That is by Internet banking.
    This i can do at any internet cafe direct from my bank.
    To do this I need your banking details (GOTv).

        • If i understand you properly you mean your gotv is presently showing and you want to pay an extra month while this one is still active to make it show for 2months.
          If that is what you mean then you have nothing to worry about it shouldn’t expire after the 1st month but if it does you can send the code i gave you to that number. It would come back up unless gotv did not receive your payment.

          • Bt I m bothered bcos dey did nt show any sign of payment, n my momey av been deducted already 4rm my do I confirm dat dey received d payment?

          • Hello Benita,
            You can call gotv on 08039003788 or 012703232 to verify if your payment has reflected in their account.

    • Hello Uko,
      What bouquet did you pay for?
      If you paid the amount correlating with the new subscription price increase then you need to send the Text “RA IUC number” to 30333.
      Example: RA 12345678910 to 30333
      It would be restored.
      If its not then go to the nearest gotv office to verify if the payment was actually successful.

  23. Please I subscribed a week ago to Gotv, and on till now it have not come up for view.
    Kindly help to resolve it.

    • Quite right but the other forms of payment are also easy.
      The major difference is that quick teller have really advertised and that makes so many people understand how it works.
