How to Activate GOTV for the First Time

You just bought, installed and connected your GOTV decoder and are now wondering how to Activate it for the very first time. First, ensure that the decoder is switched on and that it has scanned for available channels.

Now get your IUC number from the red sticker under your decoder. We're going to use this for the activation.
