2. Purchase a New Decoder: Visit an authorized GOtv dealer or retailer to purchase the upgraded decoder model you desire. Make sure to inquire about any promotions, discounts, or trade-in options available for upgrading your decoder.
3. Unbox and Connect: Unbox the new decoder and ensure that you have all the necessary components, including the decoder, remote control, power adapter, cables, and user manual. Follow the instructions provided in the user manual to connect the decoder to your TV and antenna.
4. Activating the New Decoder: Contact the GOtv customer care or follow the activation instructions provided with the new decoder to activate it. You may need to provide details such as your current subscription details, account information, and the new decoder’s unique identifier, such as the IUC number.
5. Linking your Account: If you want to transfer your subscription and account details from the old decoder to the new one, you will need to link your existing account to the new decoder.
