  18. Hi, I bought GOTV 2 months ago (IUC 2017417970) of which I viewed the channels for free for 1 month instead of the published 2 months. After disconnection, yesterday I paid Ksh. 2600 for one off payment for local channels (Local Channels Package). It then indicated E16 on the TV screen which got cleared from *423# instructions. Today upon switching on my TV, I became shocked to learn that ALL CHANNELS ARE LOST! Kindly advise on why GOTV has made me suffer despite making my payments.
