      If it hasn’t been long you did the subscription, then give it time, It will show. Otherwise, clear your Error code first. If it still doesn’t work, then contact the GOtv customer service.

    Please, let individual customer makes his choice of channels in order to reduce the subscription fees and make regular subscription. For me, l want all the sport channels, cartoon channels for children, home video channels for my wife, Christian faith channels and WAP TV channel. Will this request be possible to grant?

    1. Kachi Justin

      Sorry, It doesn’t work that way. If you need all those channels, you have to go for the Max package.
