    I know you are likely using this decoder, so how is this post going to be of any benefit to you?

    I am going to take you through all the little things you need to know about Gotv so that you can make your experience more enjoyable.

    Please note that the Lite Quarterly has an addition of ONE audio channel (Classic FM). The Lite Monthly has two more channels, Classic FM and Maisha Magic.

    It is also important to note that when scanning, the decoder will pick up so many other channels from Startimes, PANG and BAMBA. While in most cases these channels will work (if they are on the FTA platform), Gotv does not take responsibility for such.

    In addition, in their T&Cs, the package may change at any time with channels removed or added.

    3. Activation

    For your Gotv decoder to work, you need to activate it. This is especially true if you have just bought the decoder.

    Please follow the following steps.

    Go to GOtv website using the following link.

    At the website, you will see, ‘Enter your details and activate your subscription.’

    You will need to fill the following.

    • Your city
    • Surname
    • IUC Number
    • Mobile Telephone

     You can easily find the IUC number on the red sticker at the back of your decoder. Once you have activated, you can comfortable enjoy watching your favorite programs.

    Sometime you may need to activate your decoder if you have been using Gotv and your subscription expired. In this case, if you make your payment, the decoder will automatically be activated. You however need to remember that your decoder must be on to receive the activation signal.

    2. Enter the GOtv Mpesa business number 423655.
    3. Enter ICU number (ICU number is found on a red sticker at the bottom of your decoder).
    4. Enter the amount to pay.
    5. Key in your MPESA PIN
    6. Confirm that you have entered the correct details, and then send to complete the transaction.
    7. Wait for the confirmation SMS

    For other countries, the process is the same, only that you have to use your paybill number and the local mobile money transfer network.

    One more thing, you can also make online payments on Gotv website.

    6. How to change Gotv package

    Sometimes it may be necessary to change the package you are on. This is either by downgrading or up grading.

    This is how to do it.

    Via SMS

    This is the simplest and fastest way to do it. All you have to do is send the message ‘UPGRADE (DOWNGRADE) IUC NUMBER’ to 22688.

    Call customer Care

    You can call the customer care and request for an upgrade or downgrade. Again, this should work fast for you.

    In case you missed the Contacts, see them above.

    Do it online

    This is my favorite method doing this. You can do it at the ‘Easy Self Service.’ All you need to do is login at the Gotv website. Off course, you will need you phone number and IUC number.

    Once you logged in, you can easily change your package. However, it is recommended that you let the current package expire before changing to your preferred one.
