  16. Hi,,I have just recharged my startimes decoder and I cannot access any of the channels since yesterday,,, plz help me on that!!my account number 01801633861,,,paid for the Nyota and paid for a month,,,

  17. Comment:Am Richard and I have just paid for the Nyota bouquet account 01801512097 but channels are not updating.kindly assist

  18. I subscribed for monthly basic bouquet, at 599, and all uou give me is super bouquet for a week…what happens with the extra cash you charged me!

  19. Customer for the last 4 years…. paid for nyota when it was 149 per month. Now 259 you keep increasing the charges. In total I have paid 10,000 plus 1600 for the decoder.
    On 12th June 2020 I paid 259/-but was denied viewership with explaination that I did not pay the full 299. Disconnection was done on 29th June. 40/- denied me 2 weeks of viewership.

    If weekly is 100/ which does not tally with 299 per month, then I should have had at least 3 weeks to view.
    You are only concerned when I do not pay but you do not respond to complaints sufficiently.
    I feel let down, what are my options?
    All free to air channels you have disconnected.
    The last two months you denied me access days before due date.( you talk of 5% discount when you pay in full)

    After using your decoder for almost 4 years length of time this is what I get?
    account 02128254606
    The signal has been very week and unstable.

  20. Hi, my startimes was free to air but has been disconeted but even if i pay, i cant access any chanel, all i see is no signal, i even bought a new antena but all in vain
    Account number is 02102121613 kindly assist

  22. Hi, i have a free to air decorder, if i make payments to receive more channels will it automatically view or what do i have to do.

  23. Comment:why is it that there is no radio channels on my decorder i am bored and i cant listen to radio anymore and i pay you do something on this or ill move to another company

  24. Just bought a star times and was told that once you purchase it the unique bouquet will be opened for one month, unfortunately some channels I scrolled through returned a message of expired etc, how can I get the other bouquet with 100+ channels

  25. This is a disappointment. I recharged on the 15th Sept but surprisingly a message saying that I need to recharge is glued at channel 150 kungfu. My account no is 01801620014 under the name of rashid Mwakihana. It’s NYOTA.
