The bottom line is:

GOtv Max package satisfies those desiring a comprehensive experience, including documentaries, sports, kids’ shows, music, movie channels, and more.

On the other hand, the GoTV Jolli steps in as a package crafted for customers seeking an option closely resembling the Top Notch Max Package.

It is a downgrade to the Max package, but still offers much value.

2. Pricing And Affordability

Of course, you would expect the GOtv Max package to be pricier since it offers more channels and premium-like features.

However, the plan won’t cost you an arm and a leg. It is quite affordable —priced at #5,700 per month.

GOtv Jolli is more of a cheaper alternative. But you are 10 channels down at #3,950 monthly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens If I Pay My Subscription Late?

If you fail to make your GOtv package payment by the due date, several consequences may follow.

First, your services may be temporarily suspended until the outstanding amount is settled.

Additionally, an administration fee, calculated from the due date until the actual payment date, may be charged.

Nevertheless, you will only be granted access to the No.1 channel which is the GO channel—which teaches you how to effectively go about your decoder’s subscription and installation.

What Happens If I Subscribe to My GOtv Twice?

If you accidentally subscribe to GOtv twice at a spot, the extra payment won’t go just like that.

Instead, it will be credited to your account, serving as a buffer for the subsequent month.

This credit essentially covers your subscription for the following month, stopping you from an additional payment that period.

Why Is My GOtv Not Working After Subscription?

One of the leading causes is a turned-off decoder.

Always ensure your decoder is switched on when you pay to renew your GOtv or DStv subscription.

If it’s off during payment, the auto-reconnection won’t work, and your viewing won’t be reconnected automatically.

Which App Can I Use To Subscribe to My GOtv?

MyGOtv app.

It makes payment much easier. And it is readily available for both Android and iOS devices.

This app empowers you to handle various tasks such as managing your account, changing your package, paying your subscription, resolving error codes, and more.

Alternatively, you can use your bank’s mobile app for the subscription.

Just open your bank’s mobile app, go to the ‘Bills’ section, select cable TV, pick GOtv from the list, choose your package, and confirm the payment to subscribe.

It’s that simple!


So which plan is right for you, considerations based on your viewing preferences and budget?

The thing is they have split their packages to make it convenient for everyone.

As long as you are willing to pay a small amount for GOtv entertainment, there is something special for you.

To crown it all, the difference between the GOtv Max and the Jolli packages is negligible.

If you think the GOtv Max is beyond your budget, then the GoTV Jolli package may just be your best bet.
