  40. Mike Obioha

    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?

  41. kola

    I subscribed to gotv paid for gotvplus package via quickteller and I received a confirmation message that my payment was successful for 6 hours now I can’t still access channels and I sent sms to 30333 with my. IUC 4601918662 nothing is done yet please what can I do. Thanks and happy new year

        1. 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.

          1. benita

            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?

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

  63. paga is not the good way to pay bill please i wish they will returned my money l pay my gotv till today noting please tell me what to do

    1. 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.

  64. Akande Adeolu

    But I don’t have money on my bank account, but I load credit on my line. Wot can I do now?

    great post, as for me i prefer using quick teller to pay for my gotv as its very easy to understand and very effective

    1. 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.
