If you are a very busy person, who do find it difficult going to the bank to pay for your DSTV bill or don’t have a nearby Multichoice vendor where you can pay cash for your DTSV bill, well, you can easily pay your bill with the help of your phone,though, the phone must at least, be GPRS-enabled.
For you to be able to do this, you must have applied for mobile banking with your bank and have installed the mobile banking software to your mobile phone.Else you will have to use your bank ussd codes to make payment for your dstv subscription.
I am currently using FirstMobile mobile app which belongs to First Bank PLC to subscribe for dstv using my phone and the app deducts the dstv payment from my First bank account.
GTBank offers similar service too but their own mobile app is called GTMobile. Other banks in Nigeria also offer dstv payment using ussd codes and their mobile apps. You can walk in to any of their nearby branches to find out more about it.
How To Subscribe To DsTv Using FirstMobile App
If your mobile banking has been activated and is working perfectly with your bank account, follow the steps below.
Launch your FirstMobile app from your phone applications folder.
Sign in with your PIN
Select “Pay Bills”
Select “CableTV bills”
Select “Dstv Subscription”
Select the dstv package you want to pay for.
Enter your Smartcard number in the box provided
The amount i.e price of the dstv package you selected will be displayed automatically
Enter your phone number
Tap “continue” and complete the payment process.
How will Multichoice know that I have paid?
Pick up your phone, (Use the phone number you used when you bought the DSTV)
Text “RA first 10digits of your smartcardnumber” to 30333
Example: RA 1111111111
Once Multichoice receives your text, they will confirm the payment and activate your bouquet asap.
Alternatively, you can contact the customer care via 080 3900 3788 ( After the voice prompt, you will need to press 0 to connect to a Live person)
Just make sure you have necessary details handy i.e Your SmartCard number, name/ phone number used when purchasing the DSTV decoder and your address. They will need all these for verification purpose.
Just wait for some time and check channel 114 (Africa Magic) to confirm your bouquet has been activated for you, should in case your account was suspended before paying the bill.
I hope this info helps…
