After the introduction of the recharge card by Multichoice through flashmecash that is powered by FCMB, Pay for digital Tv has being easy and convenient for dstv and Gotv user that does not pay more than N1,500 per month which will be N1,800 in April.

How to pay for Dstv/Gotv and make it active in 15minutes
After buying the recharge card from any dstv or gotv agents. The normal process is to follow the steps ate the back. i.e Send a text message in this format Rc GOtv IUC Number secret pin to 30333 Example Rc Gotv xxxxxxxxxx 123456781256 to 30333 and for Dstv Send RC DStv Smartcard number secret pin to 30333
After some minutes then you will receive a message for the reference Number.
Most of the Time The process above does not work for Gotv user. I mean the account will not be active despite the transaction being successful and you will have to call the customer care again which involves extra cost which every will try to avoid due to the charges of the calls to them.
The process below will solve the problem for you.

- Then click on okay at the bottom
- Another page will come up asking you to proceed
