How to Get GOtv Open
GOtv utilises the latest Digital Terrestrial Broadcast Technology, DVB-T2. You need a Gotv decoder (a.k.a set top box) to receive the signal. Initial Gotv access cost is 6,900 Naira for GOtv decoder, outdoor antenna (a.k.a GOtenna), remote, and 1 month free Gotv plus package.
After using the initial one month free subscription to the GOtv plus package, you can now subscribe to GOtv Open by paying a one-off non-refundable administrative fee of 6,600 Naira. One-off means you pay the fee once. You will no longer pay for access to the channels on the GOtv Open package (see list above).
After subscribing to GOtv Open, you can still subscribe (upgrade) to GOtv pay packages like the GOtv standard package which costs N1,000 monthly or the GOtv plus packages, which costs N1,500 monthly. If you were subscribing to GOtv Open and upgrade to the pay packages, you will not pay the administrative fee again if you decide to go back to GOtv Open.
Gotv is a digital terrestrial TV service, not satellite TV. So, the service is deployed through TV masts and accessible only in locations with GOtv transmitter coverage. Currently GOtv is available in the following cities in Nigeria and in some cases their environs: Lagos, Enugu, Ibadan, Abeokuta, Benin City Owerri, Akwa Ibom, and Port Harcourt.
Quality of the signal will vary depending on your proximity to the transmitter.
