How To Activate GOtv New Account
To get started on your GOtv activation process, make sure the Gotv pole is mounted firmly on the ground and antenna raised high to where the signal is very strong, where it will be void of obstructions from nearby buildings, trees, etc. Properly plug the VGA cables from the decoder to the television. Don’t forget to connect the power plug to a power source. When the decoder is done loading, select any available channel other than channel 1 and leave it there.
