    I just bought a startimes decoder yesterday and sent RES#SCno#decoderno and sent to 32020.
    However, it was only NTA24news that showed, the rest of the channels were showing no signal a
    nd I noticed there were $ signs in front of other channels on channel list.
    Kindly guide on what I need to do to get all other channels.

    • Owolabi says:

      hello Musanajeem,
      first off all the code format you sent is wrong. Secondly if you are using the decoder for the first time you should leave the decoder on while plugged and connected correctly to your TV set for like ten minutes to twenty minutes, then it will activate it’s self, and all channels will be listed out.
      For the dollar sign to go away you should do auto search using your decoder remote control.
      Pls let me know if you are able to rectify the problem.

  61. K. Akpan says:

    I bought a new startimes decoder on 2nd June, 2012. I sent my decoder serial number, smart card number, address, and phone number to 08168884444 as I was told that it will activate my smart card and decoder. When I tune the decoder I can pick only NTA24 news channel. The other channels show “no service”. I went and bought a new antenna as I was told by the dealer but yet the other 35 channels still show “no service”. I was told that I do not need to recharge the decoder now because I have 1month free subscription. I’m getting fade up with this startimes. What do I do. Should I buy a card and recharge?

  62. K. Akpan says:

    Dear Owolabi
    I bought a brand new Startimes decoder with smart card number 02027717425 my decoder serial number is 27012811250969536 in Port Harcourt. I have sent an sms :RES#02027717425#27012811250969536 to 32020 to activate the decoder but I get a reply “invalid instruction”. My decoder shows only NTA24 news channel the other 35 channels show “no service” I even bought a new external antenna but to no avail. Please help me activate the other channels because I was told by the dealer that I have one month free subscription. I bought the decoder for N4900.

    • Owolabi says:

      Hello Akpan,
      Startimes decoder only is N3,900. After purchasing the decoder you will then pay for any bouquet of your choice, and this bouquet will be activated for you instantly before leaving the premises where you bought the decoder. Akpan, presently you don’t have any subscription on your decoder yet.Basic bouquet is N1000. Go back to the dealer to activate it for you.

      Hello Mrs Olaoluwa,
      ic card means your smart card number
      charge card means your PIN from the recharge card
      product code means the bouquet code eg #B or #C or #U

      So simply send CC#smart card number#PIN to 32055 to recharge your current bouquet

      send CC#Smart card number#PIN#C to 32055 to migrate to Classic bouquet.

      NB. #B means Basic Bouquet
      #C means Classic Bouquet
      #U means Unique Bouquet.
      These are the product code.

    I just recharged my decoder using Quickteller. How long will it take before ican access the platforms/Stations? Thank you.

  70. Rotimi Olawoye says:

    I bought a N1,000 recharge card and I’ve attempted to recharge twice via text message and was charged N30 on each occassion without any response from Startimes. Now I am skeptical to send in the text again fearing that I will have to pay for another text message. For how long will this continue before I get a response from startimes. Honestly I don’t want to believe that Startimes is conniving with others to take as many N30 from its clients by this non-reply to efforts to recharge. Your timely reply to this e-mail is necessary to douse the fears of your clients. Barrister Rotimi

    • Owolabi says:

  220. Hi! i bought a Star Times Decoder on 27th day of April, 2013, I subscribe for Basic Bouquet, but i could only watch programm on my TV for just two weeks, then i receive SMS from the Star Time that i should recharge, i contacted the Agent who sold the decoder to me ,i was not satisfied with his explanation, on the 8th day of August,2013 I made another attempt to recharge,i used it for just one week, then the message that was displayed on the screne was that i should recharge,I went back to the dealer again,i now discovered the he place me on Unique Bouquet instead of the Basic which i paid for. is it true that only the accredited agent alone that can do the recharge or one can do it on his own

    • Owolabi says:

      Hello Omolara,
      There is no problem with the decoder nor the signal in your city. you simply did not knowing how to properly connect the decoder to your TV sets.
      Follow this simple setup instruction for your startimes decoder.
      1. Using the video/audio cable. On your decoder plug yellow pin on yellow port, red pin on red pot and white pin on white port.

      2. Now extend the other end to your TV sets and plug yellow pin on yellow port, red pin on red port and white pin on white port.

      3. At the back of your decoder you should plug your outdoor antenna or indoor antenna.

      Note: Your antenna must be plugged at the back of the decoder.

      4. With your “TV remote” switch the TV to AV and power on your decoder. That all

  234. Fadayomi Joseph Oluwaseun says:

    I am using the startimes for the time in Ondo Town. After getting signals, only NTA Akure and OSRC are showing, others carry $ after them and are not showing, what should I do?

    • Owolabi says:

      Hello Fadeyomi,
      Reposition your antenna for better reception. If that doesn’t work then you should renew your subscription. The dollar sign indicate, you have to renew to view those channels. NTA Akure and OSRC are free to view without renewal.

    • Owolabi says:

      Hello Hopesonphilip,

      The smart card your dad gave you

      will not work with your decoder

      because it is not paired with your

      own decoder. Take the decoder to

      startimes office they will paired

      the decoder with a new smart card

      for you. Concerning the software

      update, make sure your decoder have

      good signal, with good signal your

      software update will complete

      without interruption. if your

      decoder encounter interruption while

      updating the decoder will experience

      reboot when ever you power it on.
